Fellows attendance at Oceanology hailed a success
Feedback from the Fellows team members who exhibited at Oceanology 2018 was that the event was a highly successful one for the UXO disposal experts.
Fellows General Manager, Business Development Manager and UXO Researcher were in attendance to showcase the company’s marine capability and experience of handling unexploded ordnance and explosive remnants of war. Fellows presented some new technology, in the form of the Cobra MDS® and Breach MC and explained why it is the best equipment available to tackle maritime Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) safely and efficiently.
James King, Business Development Manager at Fellows, said: “We had lots of interesting conversations at Oceanology and have identified opportunities to follow up on. There was a theme of autonomy at the event and many people were interested in how autonomous vessels can be used to find and mitigate items of UXO in the underwater environment. Our Cobra MDS system gained a lot of interest.”
Oceanology is the world’s premier event for ocean technology and marine science and a forum where industry, academia and government can share knowledge. The exhibition brings together marine professionals, organisations and businesses such as Fellows, to improve strategies for measuring, developing, protecting and operating in the world’s oceans.
Fellows General Manager, Andy Ward, added: “It was great for Fellows to attend Oceanology as part of our aim to re-establish ourselves in the offshore environment. In addition to advertising the capabilities of Fellows we were also able to help broaden attendees’ knowledge on UXO threats in the marine environment. The Fellows team and I thoroughly enjoyed networking and demonstrating how far Fellows has progressed since acquisition by the Optima Group last year. The event was a huge success and we are looking forward to exhibiting again at Oceanology 2020!”
