Blue Logic has been awarded the Innovation Award 2020 from ONS, in the SME (small and medium-sized enterprises) category, for its development of an open-standard subsea docking station for underwater vehicles.
The ONS Innovation Awards recognise the crucial importance of cutting-edge technologies and solutions. This year’s awards were announced on September 1, during ONS 2020 Digital, this year's variant of ONS.
WPC (Wireless Power and Communications) is behind the technology and solutions used in the inductive connectors and is also central in the work of creating a universal standard for the international market.
Founder of WPC, Geir Olav Gyland, says: "It's great to experience this recognition together with Blue Logic".
Helge Sverre Eide, Head of Business Development at Blue Logic, adds: “Equinor used its entire internal network of expertise and all its relevant subcontractors to contribute to this development. As a result, we have in a very short time developed solutions that have been tested and refined at an unprecedented speed. We have also worked closely with the drone suppliers – Eelume, SAAB, Oceaneering and Saipem – and held several full-day workshops in order to refine this solution to ensure its functional for the various players.”
