Modernising the centuries-old sector
Shipping could claim to be the world’s first genuinely global industry.
It connects businesses, countries, cultures and people – and, through maritime innovation, we’re working with it to address the challenges and opportunities facing the sector today.
If shipping ceased to exist tomorrow, the world would grind to a standstill.
That’s why NOC Innovations is supporting the sector in many varied ways.
We also have a long-standing relationship with the Hydrographic Office. Between our two organisations, we freely exchange tidal data to ensure both parties can rely on the most up-to-date metrics – essential for the safety of shipping around the UK. All data is checked and validated, and predictions are compared to observed data to ensure quality and accuracy.
It’s used by ferry operators and offshore energy suppliers to improve the efficiency and safety of their worldwide operations.
Polpred is innovative particle-tracking feature predicts the position of items when lost from a vessel, taking into account tidal currents and other relevant data.
