Akrocean, the cost effective and accurate response to your in-situ offshore data needs for renewable and scientific projects.
A new generation of floating LiDAR turnkey services.
WINDSEA is the first stabilised floating LiDAR, hybrid and clean powered (wave and solar energies) and benefiting from a 365/7 supervision through an onshore control center. The floating LiDAR offers much power and plenty of spaces to host other ocean observing systems (including a second LIDAR) to share the monitoring costs.
A modular service covering all client’s environmental monitoring needs.
These anchored floating platforms act as powered and stabilised base platform hosting multi sensors ocean observing system (Ocean sensors, LiDAR, Hydrophones, Radar, Sonar, drones,…). The hosted maritime container can be equipped and re-equipped endlessly avoiding multiple nautical operations and sensors redundancy.
The first Floating Radar offer for Birds & Bats detection.
FLY’R SEA is a turnkey service designed for Birds & Bats detection and quantification at sea, using a 3D floating radar. Akrocean innovates offering a service supported by an association of experts in the field of marine data acquisition and processing : Gaïa Terre Bleue (Marine environment expert), Diades Marine (3D avifauna radar manufacturer) & LPO ( Avifauna expert).
