Partners and collaboration

The maritime sector has experienced a wave of technological change in the past 7-10 years and, facing a multiplicity of influences, it is likely to remain highly dynamic. Small and medium enterprises like SubSea Craft, alongside more established industry actors, are well placed to respond to contemporary and future challenge. This can be enhanced exponentially when the strengths of a combined array of businesses can be harnessed to work collaboratively.  

SubSea Craft can contribute to such collaborative work, either by the business as an entity or through the contribution of specialist staff – with or separate from VICTA. This could allow partners to:

  • Develop capability in response to an emerging requirement
  • Test or trial novel technology or specific components ie, sub-surface communication or life-support
  • Offering a platform for training as a low-cost alternative to an existing, expensive capability ie, dived platform to support tactical development or training

SubSea Craft Trials, Testing and Training (T3) facility in Portland is ideal for the conduct of such work.
