The Governor receives a briefing and tour of Blue Ocean Monitoring HQ in Balcatta

Visit to ocean technology specialist Blue Ocean Monitoring HQ

Blue Ocean Monitoring is an ocean technology company specialising in the design, development and commercialisation of autonomous subsea data collection and survey systems.

The Governor today visited the company’s HQ in Balcatta and received a briefing on their developing technologies and ongoing research and development capabilities that have seen it grow to become a global leader in supporting our offshore sectors.

“Had an excellent visit to a great innovative, technologically capable Australian company, already with strong operations here in Western Australia and strong connections in the UK,” said the Governor.

“This is a company which does unmanned, underwater sensors already heavily engaged with the offshore mining industry but with applications that would be enormously significant to Australian defence. This is yet another signal that Western Australia is defence ready with a serious contribution to make to our capacity to defend our approaches, as well as being an extremely useful ally.”

Founded in 2014, Blue Ocean Monitoring employs 15 staff working to research and develop new technologies to support ocean data collection with the aim of helping industry improve efficiencies in the maritime space, whilst minimising risk and reducing environmental impact.

The Governor met with Blue Ocean Monitoring’s Chief Technology Officer Ben Hollings, Chairman Chris Rowe, Operations Manager Sam Ward, as well as Director’s Mark Carey and Peter O’Connor.
