As a leading company in the use of autonomous systems, 4D Ocean will provide sales and support for SeaRobotics’ autonomous surface vessels (ASVs) to survey companies, scientific research organizations, ports, offshore energy companies and mapping agencies. This also extends to a broad range of survey and scientific equipment which can be installed onto the ASVs. Full training on the vessel, sonar equipment, and software will also be provided by 4D Ocean.
Don Darling, President of SeaRobotics commented, “We are excited to have a close and experienced partner in Europe to help us expand the business and to support our growing customer base in Northern Europe.”
“4D Ocean undertook a detailed analysis of the different ASV suppliers when choosing an ASV and SeaRobotics was, without doubt, the most advanced”, commented Duncan Mallace, 4D Ocean’s Managing Director. “It is therefore very exciting to become the North European reseller for their products and we look forward to fulfilling an autonomous vision with SeaRobotics and our European partners.”
