OceanTech has developed unique solutions for accessing the challenging Splash Zone at marine installations like oil & gas platforms, offshore wind farms etc.

OceanTech involves remotely operated access solutions with or without robotic arms. All solutions are launched from the topside. This allows for reduced costs and removes the need for support vessels, ROVs and divers. OceanTechs technology operates from a fixed position relative to the working area, which makes the technology well suited for close inspections, NDT and any type of repair or modification work.

We have executed more than 60 projects for the large Oil & Gas companies over the last 15 years. OceanTech has sucsessfully solved challenges by beeing able to do advanced work in the harsh splash zone.

By our robotized technology, there is no need for divers, ROV's or support wessels - a huge cost saving!

Also liable in respect to the planed shedule - less waiting for weather compared to traditional solutions. We can work up to 3m Hs.
