2017 Spirit of Innovation award winner – Blueye Robotics from Norway – won the prestigious ECM Award for the Blueye Pioneer, the deepest underwater consumer drone on the market that can dive to depths of 150 metres.

Co-founder & Chief Global Strategist of Blueye Robotics, Christine Spiten, commented, “Winning the Innovation Award at Seawork really gave us some attention – both customers, job applicants and interested investors referred to the award! The Blueye Team is now preparing for mass production, going from prototype to the final version that will be shipped to customers in 2018”.
