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.

The first 2️⃣ floats for the REFINE project were deployed last week in the Labrador sea by Edouard Leymarie from the LOV. Those Jumbo BGC Argo floats measure the 6 standard BGC variables and the large particles and zooplankton thanks to the underwater vision profiler sensor embedded on the float. The aim of the REFINE project is to deploy several BGC Argo floats to explore the Twilight Zone!
