Originally, the project was founded in Gdynia in 2010 as Deep Ocean Technology.
Currently, all operations, now under Deep Ocean Technology Poland, include:
- designing and construction of Water Discus units;
- designing manned and remotely operated underwater vehicles;
- designing deep-sea equipment for seabed exploration at small and large depths.
In order to put these technologically demanding projects into effect, our Company has established an ongoing collaboration with scientists and engineers from the Faculty of Ocean Engineering and Ship Technology, Gdańsk University of Technology, as well as other Polish scientific and R&D institutions. We have also relied on manufacturing capabilities of both Polish and international shipyards and equipment producers.
