Sea Machines Gets a $50k Boost from MassChallenge

.   A developer of technology for autonomous and remote-commanded oceanic commercial vessels, Sea Machines systems allow surface craft to operate and navigate safely and efficiently with or without an on board crew. Initial applications ready to take advantage of autonomous systems are oil spill response vessels, tugboats, support launches, survey work boats, and dredging vessels, and in the near future this technology will enable unmanned oceanic cargo delivery.   “Modern autonomous control systems already bring immense benefits to vehicular industries from airliners to agriculture

SeaHow Skimmer System

New SeaHow skimmer systems – designed to collect both light and heavy oils efficiently – can be implemented to almost any workboat, starting with vessels only six meters long. SeaHow operates one of northern Europe’s largest fleets of oil spill response vessels, and its hands-on experience for more than 30 years was central to the three years in developing its own line of SeaHow skimmers.  SeaHow skimmers are suitable to vessels from 6m long to the largest vessels used in off-shore OSR.

support construction, inspection, maintenance and repair in addition to well intervention and decommissioning activities. Our 370 class vessels are the only vessels in the world multi-certificated by the U.S. Coast Guard as supply vessels, industrial / freight vessels, chemical tank ships, and oil spill response vessels. We expect our 300 class vessels will also fulfill multiple roles in the exploration and production cycle.   (As published in the December 2012 edition of Marine News - www.marinelink.com
