Kraken designs and manufactures unique pressure tolerant thrusters, drives, batteries, and electronics.
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 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 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’s commitment to maintaining the position as a world-class provider of deep-sea pressure tolerant encapsulation technology, products, and services.
