The Triana Group announces completion of a proprietary study on maritime technologies. The proprietary report is based on substantial qualitative and quantitative data analysis, in-depth expert interviews, a two-day workshop with multiple maritime technology stakeholders, field visits, and a questionnaire survey of innovative maritime technology companies.

The result is an insightful review of innovation trends, user needs and collaboration opportunities, licensing interest, as well as specific operational recommendations for technology companies and R&D organizations involved in this sector or interested in spotting innovative technologies ready to transition to commercial use in their markets.

Technologies Reviewed Include:

  • Harbor technologies (harbor environment; harbor of the future; greening of harbors)
  • Transportation technologies (maritime transportation & logistics innovations; wing sail technologies)
  • Aquaculture technologies (sea farms technologies; seafood technology and supply sustainability; tactics and infrastructure to optimize fishery production; open ocean cage fish farming; floating infrastructure)
  • Ocean water technologies (water reclamation; seawater desalination technologies and operations)
  • Ocean observation technologies (analytical software; ocean imaging and image processing software; new algorithms; mapping and geo-referencing; autonomous monitoring; High Frequency radars)
  • Robotics technologies (port robots; robots for aquaculture; automated robots operating with biofuels; marine robotic systems for ocean observation; Remotely Operated Underwater Vehicles -ROV; unmanned surface and undersea projects)
  • Maritime conservation technologies (water quality observation; trash and plastic waste reduction)
  • Energy technologies (algae ponds for biofuel/ blue biotech; harvesting of macro algae; other ocean-based renewable energy; energy efficiency for unmanned maritime vehicles)
  • Carbon sequestration technologies
  • Security (security networks; rescue services)
