- instrumentation solutions
- acoustic communications
The Aquatec Group are creators of innovative instruments, services and solutions for measurement, monitoring and communication underwater. They provide instrumentation solutions for all water environments, including offshore structures and pipelines; oceans, estuaries, rivers and lakes; and marine mammals and fisheries.
Aquatec was founded by the current managing director in 1990 as a specialist consultancy in oceanographic instrumentation design. Since then, the company has established a diverse portfolio of products for measurement of physical oceanographic and process parameters including temperature, depth, suspended sediment, motion, orientation, cathodic protection, subsea leaks and marine mammal activity, as well as through and above water data communication systems, and marine mammal deterrents.
Aquatec Group employs highly qualified engineering personnel with extensive expertise in oceanographic and offshore applications. In-house expertise includes:
Low power data loggers
Digital signal processing
Temperature and pressure measurement
Underwater optical instrumentation
Suspended sediment acoustic characteristics
High frequency acoustics
Underwater acoustic communication
The Aquatec Group is an ISO9001:2008 certified company, qualified for the design and manufacture of instrumentation and IT systems.
Aquatec Group design and manufacture an extensive range of instruments, as well as undertaking custom design projects:
