Nortek B.V. in the Netherlands has acquired SeaDarq b.v., a Dutch company that specializes in software enhanced radar systems with special focus on oil spill detection, small object detection, and upper layer current measurements.
The advanced software system can be interfaced to most commercial marine radars and is currently in use both on ships and as part of land-based radars like those used in heavily trafficked ports like Rotterdam. The product is used 24/7 and has greatly benefited from a long-term technology cooperation with TNO (Netherlands Organization for Applied Scientific Research) to ensure the best possible performance.
Nortek B.V. will continue to supply Seadarq products and aims to provide combined technology solutions to the benefit of its worldwide customer base.
