The Marine Equipment Trade Show or "METS" is a business to business trade show held annually at the Amsterdam RAI Exhibition Centre with exhibitors and businesses from around the world.
This year we took the Boxfish ROV along to exhibit at the show and entertained a steady stream of visitors to our stand.
After much industry anticipation our ROV was released for sale in September this year and the order book has been filling up, with production now booked solid until late January 2019.
The opportunity for us to get the ROV in front of potential customers and distributors was invaluable. For some the quantum shift in ROV technology that the Boxfish platform represents must be seen to be believed and the feedback we received from the show has backed up our belief that we have created something very special.
Thanks to all who came along to say hi and please get in touch for further information.
We were invited by New Zealand's largest seafood company, Sanford, to help showcase the world under the surface of our oceans at the Ports of Auckland Seeport Festival 2019.
“Going off coms” is the the last thing Tom says before climbing out of the back seat of the hovering helicopter, onto the sea ice with a 1m long ice drill. A minute later, after drilling a couple of holes, a thumbs up signals that he is satisfied that the ice is at least 75cm thick, strong enough to support the weight of the 1300kg helicopter & its contents. The pilot powers the machine down and we begin unloading ourselves, the Boxfish ROV, the Boxfish 360, hydrophones, camera gear, survival bags and of course snacks! It is around 10pm and this will be our base for the nights activities on the ice.
