Welcome to Swiss Ocean Tech
Home of AnchorGuardian
We have a brand new website dedicated only to AnchorGuardian.
At Swiss Ocean Tech, we believe in safe anchoring.
Our mission is to ensure that no matter the size of a vessel – whether it be a leisure boat, merchant ship, fishing vessel or super yacht – all information needed whilst anchoring is available to ensure safety for sailor, ship and sea.
Home of AnchorGuardian, a cutting-edge and patented technology which offers a complete range of intelligent data throughout the anchoring procedure and immediately recognizes anchor drag, thus minimizing the risk of groundings, collisions and environmental damage. Still in the testing phase, AnchorGuardian is set to go into production in 2023.
Swiss Ocean Tech named a 2022 finalist for the Ocean Awards in the “innovation award” category.
The Ocean Awards are hosted by the Blue Marine Foundation, a leading UK ocean conservatory foundation, and BOAT International, one of the leading superyacht magazines.
The Innovation Award recognises the individual, company or group that has this year publicly introduced innovative measures for reducing stress on the oceans or for improving ocean health.
This recognition confirms the sustainable impact of AnchorGuardian by helping to avoid oil spills and other contaminations in the oceans and lakes, by reducing the impact on plant and animal life at the seafloor and by providing useful information to the scientific community and mapping sensitive areas where anchoring should be regulated.
<<venture>> is the leading competition for start-ups in Switzerland. As a finalist in the Industrial & Engineering vertical, Swiss Ocean Tech Ltd. was placed second overall putting it at the top 5% of all participants. Passion, great teamwork and an innate understanding of what is needed to make shipping safer and more sustainable were the key winning criteria.
Word on the Water
As one of the leading shipping companies worldwide, EPS understands the need to minimize anchor dragging, both for the safety of our seafarers onboard and for environmental preservation. Swiss Ocean Tech brings their revolutionary technology to address this concern. We are pleased to provide them with financial resources, mentorship, access to our network, and deployment on a merchant vessel for testing.
I see AnchorGuardian not only as providing great value add but as a necessity for any type of vessel when anchoring. It could be truly a “game changer” for many existing but also for new boat owners.
I believe the marine industry would be better off with AnchorGuardian because it has that additional safety factor but I think also because we will have a better understanding of what is happening at the anchor when we are anchoring.
I strongly believe this safety relevant product will be of high interest to owners and captains of ships.
I believe the innovative functionalities provided are a breakthrough in the shipping industry.
I believe your product will make an important contribution to the health and safety of our crews.
