NKE sales team is pleased to present you Stefan Raimund – its new sales manager as he will aim to strengthen and develop NKE sales force on the international market.
Stefan has a strong scientific background:
👨🏻🎓 Ph.D. thesis in marine chemistry
🔬 Scientific consultant in a German company specialized in the subsea and marine technology
In a nutshell, the GreenHull projects aims to improve environmental protection by developing innovative green technologies for in-water hull cleaning in addition to effective cross-border management of the produced wastewater and waste arising from the hull cleaning procedure in the Northern Adriatic Sea.
On October 21st and 22nd we participated to the virtual Kick-off meeting of the project #NAUTILOS among a large consortium of 21 partners from 11 European countries!
We’re proud to be part of this innovative European project which aims to obtain a collection data at a much higher spatial and temporal resolution and enable and democratize the monitoring of the marine environment to both traditional and non-traditional data users.
NKE officially joined a new R&D project: NAUTILOS started on the 1st of October!
NAUTILOS aims to find a new approach regarding underwater technologies for innovative and low-cost ocean observation.
This is an H2020 project funded under the Future of Seas and Oceans Flagship Initiative coordinated by the National Research Council of Italy.
NKE will bring to this project its long-time multidisciplinary expertise in terms of ocean instrumentation development and integration.
One of our profiling float engineer, Christophe Schaeffer, hold a two-days-training on the PROVOR #CTS5_USEA that is fully BGC-Argo compliant.
Antoine Poteau (LOV) and Leo Lacour attented this training to collect all the information about the functionalities of this float that benefits from a new graphical user interface to set mission and acquisition parameters.
We proceeded last week to the maintenance of buoys in Brest. ⚓🌊
Those buoys are equipped with NKE multiparameter probes that measure turbidity, conductivity, pH and fluo during the polder constructions.
➡️ Those devices aim to monitor the movement of sediment so that it doesn’t pollute the environment.
Enjoy the sunny weather of Brittany! ☀
NKE Team were on the field this summer in Luxembourg to set up two floats equipped with multiparameter probes and WiSens TD data loggers.
👉 The aim of the buoys is to measure the main physico-chemical parameters of the water.
👉 While the WiSens TD aim to monitor thermocline on the first layers of the water surface.
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.
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!
New type of NKE profiling floats were tested at IFREMER test pool last week! 💻
The successful tests were holding on the #PROVOR CTS5_USEA profiling floats embedding the UVP6-LP from #Hydroptic in addition to the 6 core-BGC-Argo variables the floats can be equipped with.
The UVP6-LP is designed to study large particles and zooplankton. 📹 🦐
The 6 NKE buoys were deployed along the port of La Rochelle to monitor the Atlantic coast during the constructions.
They are doing great and they proved their worth and robustness despite the breaking waves in December 🌊
As a reminder, know that we implemented a continuity plan to ensure your requests.
To do so we established new sanitary procedures in order to maintain the activity and prepare ourselves for the end of the lockdown!
Therefore we keep doing the best of we can whether from NKE facility 🏭 or from home 🏡
