Newfoundland and Labrador - a rare find

Ocean Technology

The ocean and its resources are central to life in Newfoundland and Labrador. As key industries such as the fishery and oil & gas have sought to increase efficiency and mitigate risks, local researchers and companies have developed solutions. From sensors and optics to ocean observation and simulation testing and training, there is deep expertise in researching challenges and creating real-world solutions.



Simulation: Training for everyday and emergency situations can be tested without the risk of real-world, open-sea training. From simulating subsea installations to lifeboat scenarios, this technology increases readiness and decreases risk.

Ocean Observation: Sea states, currents, salinity, temperature, and ice – companies are using manned, remote, and autonomous technologies to identify and mitigate risks on the world’s oceans.
