SeaView Systems and Consolidated Ocean Technologies (CoTs) today announce a strategic partnership to exploit their complementary capabilities for certain service-oriented projects. CoTs’ personnel are experts in subsea technologies and have over 150+ years combined experience in developing, testing, integrating, operating and maintaining subsea systems.

SeaView has a proven track record for devising, developing and deploying unique custom ROVs, underwater tooling systems, and innovative marine electronics such as the industry-leading SVS-603 wave sensor, as well as performing sophisticated data analysis on the results of underwater surveys.

“The unique subsea technology skills and capabilities of the team at CoTs are invaluable and, when partnered with SeaView’s existing skill set, will represent a unique combination,” said SeaView Operations Manager Geoff Cook. “The SeaView team is looking forward to the expanded scope of possibilities that comes from having access to the rich experience and deep bench that CoTs has assembled.”

Besides combining personnel to provide the richest palette of solutions for their client base, SeaView and CoTs will utilize their combined set of hardware and design resources to more flexibly deploy their engineering and operations talent as well as specialized ROV capabilities wherever the market demands.

“We have a great admiration for the team at SeaView and the unique capabilities that they have developed over the years,” said Todd Patten, President of CoTs. “We are excited with the prospects that this partnership allows us to bring to our diverse group of clients ranging from utilities to offshore operations to autonomous subsea vehicles.”

An initial result of the partnership will see SeaView’s SurfROVer littoral crawler deployed for survey operations on the US west coast, with a new base at CoTs’ Ventura California headquarters.
