Making coastal data collection efficient and affordable

– We will build a network of Unmanned Surface Vessels (USVs) along the coast, says Sander Henriksen, Founder and CEO of Nordic USV a new startup and member of GCE Ocean Technology.

Nordic Usv AS develops and will mainly operate unmanned vessels (USV’s) to make coastal ocean data accessible.

– We will build the USV network, by using docking stations, so that the vessels can dock and start charging between each mission. In other words, we will be able to provide fresh data quickly and affordably along the entire coast, says Sander.

Web portal provides answers

By using their web portal, customers can easily plan routes and areas where they want to conduct a "survey". The possibility of choosing sensors, timing, or intervals is also included in the portal.

– With that information entered, the customer will immediately see the cost of the mission and we envision that using our service will be the absolute easiest and most cost-effective way to acquire certain datasets, Sander explains.

– We are thrilled to have the chance to connect with other members and exchange ideas on current topics such as offshore wind and seabed minerals. The event will be a valuable platform for us to engage in meaningful conversations and establish productive relationships while enjoying the hopefully sunny and warmer weather, ends Sander.
