A cleantech solution to collecting ocean data
Our oceans are full of information. Information that can protect at-risk whale species, allow ships to voyage more fuel-efficient routes, crack down on illegal fishing, and enable us to better understand the impacts of climate change. Our boats are equipped with sensors, cameras and communication devices so that we can capture information from anywhere on the ocean and have instant access to it. Harvesting energy from the sun, our boats travel nonstop for months, without producing any greenhouse gas emissions, noise pollution or risk of oil spills. They are an essential component to creating a digital ocean, an Internet of Things for the sea, where we finally begin to understand some of the most mysterious regions of our planet.

The United States offshore wind energy market is ramping up, with plans to create a series of wind farms off the country’s Atlantic coast presenting vast supply‑chain opportunities for Canada’s ocean technology industry. Estimates that offshore wind development there has the potential to create a US$70‑billion business pipeline by 2030 could mean lots of work for Canadian companies in areas from geophysical and geotechnical surveying and marine mammal monitoring to offshore service vessel design and training programs...
