The Case:
CONTROS was estbalished in 2006 as a GmbH and is a leader for dissolved gas measurements and building systems for the total carbon cycle helping to understand ocean acidification. Also Contros is in the forefront for early leak detection at subsea structures conserving the subsea environment.

The Company:

The Kiel, Germany, based CONTROS Systems & Solutions GmbH develops, produces and markets in-situ underwater sensor systems to detect hydrocarbons (e.g. methane), CO2 and oil in water (polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, PEG) down to a full ocean depth in any condition. The company’s products are mainly used for early leak detection and environmental assessment within the Offshore Oil & Gas industry, ranging from mobile inspections of pipelines and subsea structures to stationary Monitoring, Measurement and Verification (MMV) systems for subsea structures. The versatile CO2 systems are widely used for scientific campaigns in the field of climate studies, methane hydrate research, air-sea exchange and ocean acidification, CO2 sequestration applications (CCS), fish farming and limnology.

The Tech:
CONTROS’ aim is to sustain the current strength and to develop new technologies in order to deliver sensor systems to measure the total carbonate system in any liquid application ranging from pH, CO2 through to TA. With the HydroC CONTROS overcomes the fact that it is not possible to measure dissolved and gaseous methane (CH4) and carbon dioxide (CO2) directly in the water phase (in-situ) by combining the proven and highly precise non-dispersive infrared technology (NDIR, Laser) with a unique and worldwide patented membrane module.
