MTR100: Tritech International

Marine Technology Reporter

Tritech has provided reference standard products for subsea operations for over 25 years with products that are tried, tested and relied upon in ROV/ AUV markets. Tritech has grown its business to reflect new technologies and expanded territory opportunities, extending the company’s credibility and commitment from very humble entrepreneurial beginnings. 

Established in 1991, Tritech International Limited, a Moog Inc. company, began with the aim of producing an innovative range of subsea products for the offshore oil and gas industry, military and other world-wide subsea markets. Tritech specializes in high-performance acoustic sensors, sonars, video cameras and mechanical tooling equipment, serving professional underwater markets, including defense, energy, engineering, survey and underwater vehicles.

Today, Tritech remains an industry leader as a provider of sensors and tools for ROV/AUV markets, a reputation achieved from over 25 years of delivering expertise through key industry-standard products such as the Super SeaKing mechanically scanning sonar and now the Gemini suite of imaging and now profiling sonars. From the company’s imaging ranges (mechanical and multibeam), to bathymetric sensors, to hydraulic and mechanical equipment, Tritech is able to support many subsea applications from the traditional ROV/ AUV markets to aquaculture and cave diving.

Tritech offers its Gemini multibeam imaging sonar to monitor and often track mammals and marine objects around marine current turbines and more recently to detect sharks and ultimately protect human life around beaches. Tritech’s technology has also been applied in law enforcement and SAR operations where then Gemini, along with Tritech’s shallow-water side scan, has enabled ease of rescue missions. The common thread in all these working environments is usually low-visibility and the requirement to detect, track and analyze, often in very shallow or very deep water; elements which the Gemini and the latest model (Gemini 720is) can address.

Recent investments in new premises in Ulverston, Cumbria for the design, repair, service and manufacturing of products has provided greater test facilities including; two test tanks and a new high-pressure test chamber, both critical to ensure equipment reliability in the harsh subsea conditions in which Tritech’s customers operate.
