Mariscope Meerestechnik was founded in 1994 in Kiel, Germany, with the aim to develop and construct oceanographic equipment. The main manufacturing lines are: • ROVs (Remotely Operated Vehicles). • Underwater cameras and communication systems. • Towed vehicles • Deep Sea systems • Custom Designed systems
Nowadays, Mariscope Meerestechnik produces all types of oceanographic instrumentation for fluvial, coastal, lakes, off-shore and deep ocean applications.
Since April 2001 Mariscope Meerestechnik opened a branch in Puerto Montt, Chile, with the name Mariscope Chilena Ltda. The most important fields in which Mariscope Chilena is active are: • Underwater robotic • Professional diving equipment • Professional diving courses • Hyperbaric facilities • Oceanographic sensor technology • Oceanographic engineering
Mariscope Chilena Ltda. was founded with the idea to give in South America a suitable technical service on all products made by the Mother Company. In order to give integral solutions, i.e. in fish farming, Mariscope included professional diving and oceanographic consultancy, as two additional branches of the company.
Main clients of Mariscope Chilena are the aquaculture industry,the fishing industry, mining and research. To satisfy the necessity of its clients, Mariscope offers an important variety of products, services and technical support.
In 2011 Mariscope opened an office in Argentina, with a similar focus as in Chile.
Mariscope designs, develops and builds almost all components in house. Fully equipped electronic and mechanic workshops in Germany for the manufacturing.
Fully equipped mechanic and electronic workshops for service and repair in South America.
Some systems are developed in strong cooperation with other marine technology companies in northern Germany, where Mariscope is part of a Maritime Cluster.
Mariscope is also highly involved with applied oceanographic research. In Argentina Mariscope is carrying out a project on Marine Mammal research related to the Southern Right Whales. Here Mariscope’s technology is used in order to understand the problems of pollution and Whale starvation.
In Chile mariscop’s technology is used to understand problems of pollutions and diseases related to the aquaculture industry (salmon farming).
Mariscope has a strong cooperation with the Argentinean Space Agency (CONAE) and the European Space Agency (ESA)
Recent technologic developments include the underwater cavitation cleaning system Mc Clean, coupled to Mariscope’s ROV technology.
