Aquatec Invests in Canadian Expansion
Now also trading from Nova Scotia under its new Canadian registered denomination—Aquatec Subsea Inc.— the company is investing in its North American expansion and taking strategic actions to consolidate its operations.
Today, shortly after a successful trade mission, which included a scheduled UK Innovate Edge networking programme, presence at the H2O Conference & Exhibition, and a live demonstration of its Sediment SolvedTM division’s capabilities at COVE’s Demo Day, Aquatec announced its decision to make high-tech ocean technology hub COVE its official Canadian office space. The Centre for Ocean Ventures & Entrepreneurship in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, provides Aquatec direct access to its modern harbour-side facilities but, most importantly, the opportunity to synergise the firm’s 32- year know-how with a community of over 300 other ocean-related companies
We are delighted to welcome French oceanography and hydrography specialist Maritech SAS to Aquatec’s team of official resellers.
Maritech has provided high-quality instruments and world-class equipment to environmental agencies, universities and research institutes for over 36 years.
They will now add to their offering Aquatec’s Sediment Solved range, which includes all models of our advanced turbidity logger AQUAlogger® 310 and every version of our unique acoustic suspended sediment profiler AQUAscat® 1000.
