OceanTech is a world leading service provider of robotic solutions for splash zone operations. The splash zone is defined as the area where divers and ROVs have difficulty to work, in an elevation typically ranging from +5 meters down to -20 meters below the sea surface. Our services include cleaning, inspection, repair, and modification in the splash zone. We offer a turnkey service including all planning, personnel, and equipment necessary for execution on the clients’ sites.

We were founded in 2017 as a result of a management buyout of the splash zone division from Altrad Linjebygg. OceanTech is based in Trondheim, Norway, and our head office is located close to the local harbour area. Under the previous company name, we have been executing remote operated splash zone projects since 2007. However, the company has a proud history back to the early 1990’s when we first started working in the splash zone using clever rigging and lifting techniques in combination with rope access.

We continue to develop our patented technology further both with the use of in-house funding, projects funded by our clients and as parts of government research grants. Through this continuing innovation process, we have successfully grown our market position for our services. In addition, we continue to develop a high-end knowledge and skill set for design, manufacturing assembly and testing of advanced subsea tooling. Examples are recent implementation of cybernetic technology in our control systems and onshore control capability of our tooling with live video feed direct to our client’s computer, tablet, or mobile phone.

In addition to our main office in Skippergata 14, Trondheim, Norway, we have our Subsea Test Center next door to our office where we have our dry dock (120x20x14 meters), warehouse and assembly workshop. The Subsea Test Center is also available for rental for testing of subsea components or other type of underwater tests. The dry dock can be used dry or wet (sea water). The Subsea Test Center has an overhanging traversing crane with a lift capacity of 25 ton. Typical users of the facility are oil and gas and energy operators for testing equipment ranging from small tooling to larger subsea templates. Also, universities, research institutes and other tech-companies have used the test facilities with great success.
