Global ocean technology company General Oceans has acquired Tritech International, a world leader in imaging sonars and equipment used in low visibility marine construction and subsea applications. Tritech has served the offshore energy and defence industries for over 30 years and will strengthen the General Oceans group of companies’ already substantial capabilities in subsea sensors, serving applications from large oceanographic campaigns to mission-specific remotely operated vehicles.
General Oceans President Atle Lohrmann stated: “As the second acoustic sensor company to join General Oceans, we believe that Tritech’s strong brand recognition, solid quality tradition and highly reputed customer support will expand and enhance our ability to provide outstanding products to our customers. We are delighted to know that we can now collaborate with the proud people at all levels within the Tritech organization, including production, development and sales.”
Multibeam Imaging Sonars
General Oceans companies are particularly pleased to incorporate the new Gemini series of multibeam imaging sonars into the group’s product offerings and engineers in both organizations have already begun to conceptualize work involving collaborative solution development for intelligent autonomy.
David Bradley, managing director at Tritech, commented: “We are delighted to be joining General Oceans. The synergies with the other companies in the existing partnership are obvious and our expectation is that Tritech can contribute to making a difference in the world of ocean technology by bringing its sensors to the group. The opportunity to grow together through these synergies and ultimately make the subsea industry that bit safer for all involved is exciting and a welcome challenge to all of us at Tritech.”
