Ocean Infinity to open robotic ship Operations Centre in Australia

Tasmania is poised to chart a new course in maritime innovation with the arrival of Ocean Infinity, a global leader in marine robotics. Thanks to support from the Government of Tasmania, the Australian island state is on the brink of entering a new era in safer, more environmentally sustainable marine operations.  Ocean Infinity, renowned for […]

Remotely initiated geotechnical operations for Ossian wind farm 

Ocean Infinity's 'Infinity CPT 250'

Pioneering exploratory geotechnical surveys for the construction of offshore wind farm Ossian have recently been completed, with involvement from Ocean Infinity’s newly developed device, the ‘Infinity CPT 250’. The Ossian wind farm is a joint venture between SSE Renewables, Marubeni and Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP); it will cover 858km2 of seabed, off the east coast […]

Our first Armada ship arrives in Norway

2023 has kick-started with the first Armada ship arriving in Norway – to VARD Søviknes – after its maiden voyage which begun on 19th of November in Vietnam. The first of eight highly advanced, 78-meter vessels will be the first of their kind, enabling Ocean Infinity to perform tech-enabled lean-crewed operations for a safer and […]

First Armada ship undergoes sea trials

The first Armada ship to roll off the production line is undergoing sea trials in Vietnam. Designed for today’s tasks but with tomorrow’s in mind, these exceptionally fuel-efficient, onshore-controlled ships will initially only utilise a skeleton crew onboard.  In due course, they will be capable of working with no personnel offshore whilst also consuming solely […]

Remote survey system testing

In preparation for the readiness of the Armada ships we have been testing our ability to run remote survey operations. During a trial period ran in June 2022, we had a vessel mobilised in Sweden collecting hydrographic and geophysical data. The data collected was streamed, via a satellite link, to our Remote Control Centre (RCC) […]

Armada launches to sea

The first of the 78m Armada vessels has been successfully launched in Vietnam. This ship is the first of 23, innovative low-emission vessels, set to transform operations at sea. Announced in November 2020, these optionally-crewed robotic vessels are set to spearhead the marine industry’s movement to carbon neutral operations. Designed for today’s tasks but with […]

Transforming operations at sea: The role of remote technology on the industry’s path to net zero

Ocean Infinity is on a mission to play its part in protecting the planet by transforming operations at sea, through the development and deployment of innovative technology.   Here, Sam Taylor, Business Development Manager, discusses the essential technologies being developed to facilitate safe remote operations that could bring wider benefits to the conventional offshore industry by […]

Ocean Infinity Broadens Remote Fleet Plans with Order of 85m Robotic Vessels From VARD

Ocean Infinity has contracted VARD for the design and construction of a new series of six multi-purpose offshore vessels, all of which will be operated from shore and will eventually utilise green ammonia as fuel. This landmark order of six, 85-metre, optionally crewed robotic vessels will take Ocean Infinity’s remote vessel fleet to 23 vessels […]

Remote control centre goes live

For the first time we’ve completed beyond line of sight robotic operations from our Southampton-based Remote Control Centre. The Remote Control Centre will be the operational hub for the Armada fleet of uncrewed ships – currently in build. Demonstrating the ability to remotely operate payload equipment is an important milestone towards the commercial readiness of […]
