There are two very prevalent and corelated themes that will continue to define ocean technology over the coming decade: automation and remote operations. 21st century advances in ocean technology, more specifically complex subsea systems and custom oceanographic equipment, have forever transformed the way we work at sea, and many of the future plans of offshore developers and oceanic researchers alike hinge on the concept of subsea residency. That is, the ability to deploy automated marine assets—be them unmanned vehicles, sensors, or critical infrastructure—underwater for sustained periods, remotely.
Okeanus today announced that it has expanded its geographical footprint to include offices and equipment storage facilities in the state of Rhode Island, to support the sharp growth in demand from the offshore energy sector amid increasing offshore wind activity in the northeastern United States.
