Kraken Power GmbH designs and manufactures unique pressure tolerant thrusters, drives, batteries, and electronics. The company was established by Carl Thiede during his thesis project on pressure tolerant applications.
For marine research, exploration, deep-sea mining, gas hydrate development, science and industry the development of compact, cost-effective and reliable submersible vehicles, easy to operate and with the lowest possible operating costs are demanded – a new generation of unmanned diving robots operate autonomously and reliably from several thousand meters. The pressure-neutral technology developed by Kraken Power GmbH offers an alternative to conventional pressure-resistant encasings made of cost-intensive materials and the maintenance-requiring oil-compensated systems.
The goal for Kraken is the development of an uncomplicated and economical technology for the construction and application of mechanical, electrical, and electronic systems that withstand a hydrostatic pressure of around 600 bar (equivalent to diving depths of approx. 6,000 m). Based on this technology, Kraken Power GmbH offers various electric drive systems with a power range from 100 W to 3.6 kW and energy supply systems based on lithium-polymer cells.
Achieving DIN EN ISO 9001:2015 certification in 2018 demonstrates Kraken Powers commitment to maintaining the position as a world-class provider of deep-sea pressure tolerant encapsulation technology, products, and services.
