2017 – Kraken Power GmbH – Dr. Ludwig Bölkow Technology Prize

On December 11, more than 100 guests participated at the national LUDWIG-BÖLKOW Technology Prize 2017. The award took place in the Rostock Chamber of Industry and Commerce for the 15th time, where two innovative companies from the fields of marine technology and mechanical engineering were sharing the prize of 10,000 €. Kraken Power GmbH was awarded for its innovative drive and battery system for diving robots. The pressure-neutral systems can be used at sea depths of up to 6,000 metres. They use a new pressure-body and fluid-free technology for the use of mechanical, electrical and electronic underwater systems (underwater robots). They can be used for research purposes, but also for oil and gas production in the deep sea. The use of elastic materials, which encloses the incompressible components, has led to a significant cost reduction compared to pressure-resistant systems.

2017 – Kraken Robotik GmbH (Bremen) awarded Go-3D prize for SeaVision

Kraken Robotik GmbH was recently awarded the Go-3D prize for Kraken’s SeaVision™ system. The Go-3D award was established to recognize outstanding technical achievement in the field of 3D visualization. It was presented by the Fraunhofer Institute for Computer Graphics Research in association with BITKOM, the German Association for Information Technology, Telecommunications and New Media. SeaVision™ is the world’s first full-color, 3D laser underwater imaging system. Equipped with a high-resolution camera and laser, the system allows users to reconstruct objects on the seabed in such a way that detailed models can be subsequently produced for 3D visualization. Dr. Jakob Schwender, Managing Director of Kraken Robotik GmbH said, “We’re very honored to accept this award. Modern technologies for the acquisition, processing and visualization of 3D data have become an increasingly important issue for the design, production and operation of industrial projects. This applies in particular to the underwater maritime industry with its…
