Our challenge towards blue economy


The aims of the company is designing, manufacturing and selling instruments for the measurement and the monitoring of oceans and fresh waters. The top one priority of NKE Instrumentation is to be involved in the understanding of the blue lung of the planet by developing smart high-tech products. The fields of applications are rivers, lakes, estuaries, oceans and deep sea.

There are three distinct ranges of products. Underwater monitoring instruments that are products designed to measure in-situ the main physico-chemical parameters of fresh and sea water. Buoys and instrumented systems aim to measure, transmit and retrieve data in any type of environment. Profiling floats are used for oceanographic and environmental studies of the evolution of oceans and climate. NKE Instrumentation is though involved in the international ARGO program to supply temperature and salinity profiling floats.

NKE Instrumentation is a leading provider of water monitoring solutions thanks to its 30 years of experience in this field. The company aims solving environmental issues and be involved in several research projects in order to find challenging solutions.


Up to 20 water parameters

Digital smart sensor suite

Plug and unplug at will

No dedicated software – web embedded interface

Do you know the WiSens family?

Temperature, pressure, salinity, velocity, tide, waves, conductivity, depth, turbidity … They are not frightened by anything!

Discover the new pCO2 sensor!

Compact and robust, the pCO2 sensor can measure pCO2 concentration in seawater. The perfect device to measure Air-Sea CO2 fluxes in ocean.

Bio profiling floats

This Provor CTS4 float is now capable to be part of various types of missions as it can embed additional sensors to the standard CTD.

Drifting buoys

This buoy is tailored to measure Sea Surface Temperature, Pressure and High Resolution Sea Surface Temperature!

Provor NOSS

A PROVOR NOSS Profiling Float is equipped with NOSS sensor to estimate the anomalies of composition of the seawater. This new profiling float could contribute to improve the knowledge of absolute salinity and density of seawater.


Offshore wind farm in the Bay of Saint-Brieuc: NKE Instrumentation offers its skills at the service of MREs

2020 is marked by the first EMR commercial project won by NKE Instrumentation. Indeed, the company is putting all its skills to good use in the field of marine renewable energy by providing a network of seven oceanographic buoys for meteorological and environmental measurements to monitor the construction work on the offshore wind farm in the Bay of Saint-Brieuc (in Brittany, FRANCE). The investment for this major project based in Brittany is being carried out by the Ailes Marines consortium under the responsibility of Iberdrola.

Flash Webinar: the use of the WiMo sonde

As we couldn't wait more to introduce you for real the WiMo sonde, we decided to stop waiting!
Therefore we will introduce the WiMo sonde and how to use it through flash webinars on Wednesday, May 27th.
Can't wait to have you there!
