About Us

Continuous pro active involvement in the global subsea technology industry for over thirty years ensures Vocean  are well placed to identify with and understand challenges presented.

Vocean create electronics solutions for the submerged environment. Active markets include, offshore oil and gas, offshore renewables, freshwater site inspection and bespoke systems design.

Engineers use the latest CAD tools to create designs for electronic circuit boards and mechanical assemblies. In so doing they create innovative products for the ROV, underwater and subsea sectors.

Vocean Scope of activity

Vocean has a broad portfolio of activity within the subsea sector of the offshore industry as electronics engineers

  • ROV control systems design and manufacture
  • ROV control systems troubleshooting offshore – emergency call out basis worldwide
  • Electronics and sensors  interfacing
  • Industry specific hard products
  • Inspection class ROV surveys as required by facilities management in the renewables sector
  • Remanufacture of obsolete circuit boards
  • Innovative adaptation of contemporary technologies to underwater use

Recent innovations include an ROV deployed multi camera photogrammetry system which provides 3D photorealistic modelling.

Vocean  has partaken in operational trials of  Doppler navigation systems, buried object detection and auto pilot control systems using our Sea Eye Falcon ROV.

Vocean also has strong connections with development partners in S E Asia.

 

ROV Survey capability

Vocean  own and operate a Sea Eye Falcon ROV which is a first class platform for a wide range of imaging and sensing systems. A broad range of capabilities is facilitated by a fibre optic multiplexer system and 1100 M umbilical.

 

Work class ROV control system upgrades

Offshore product development

Vocean is one of a few electronics engineering companies with a proven track record of offshore product development.

Recent innovations include an ROV deployed multi camera photogrammetry system which provides 3D photorealistic modelling.
This niche market has provided opportunities to demonstrate capability in the development of environment tailored products such as;
Real time electronic control systems for ROV’s, subsea tooling systems, subsea excavation machinery,

Solid state gyro systems,

Vocean also has strong connections with development partners in S E Asia.

 

Electronics design services

To meet the challenges of offshore product development, Vocean has accumulated a broad portfolio of in house skills. Electronics design services using CAD tools incorporate electronic schematic capture and pcb layout design of microcontroller and interface PCAs. Further CAD tools are used for 3D design of chassis assemblies and deep water pressure housings.
Vocean create bespoke microcontroller subsystems, interconnected on CAN Bus and optical fibre links to fulfil the requirements of reliable real time control in harsh, remote environments.

Software development services

Commensurate with Electronics design services is software development. The Vocean portfolio includes the full spectrum of platforms from PIC microcontrollers to touchscreen PCs running Windows XP embedded.
