COVE Continues to Reel In Ocean Tech Companies

 October 28, 2019 (Dartmouth, NS) – COVE marks its one-year anniversary of operation with the addition of Dartmouth Ocean Technologies Inc. (DOT), the 58th company to locate at the facility.

DOT is focused on delivering ocean sensor platforms to the world market. Initially this is the family of towed stable depressors called the “D Wings” that are available in a variety of sizes and can be outfitted with sensors for a diverse range of applications. Other platforms will be added in the future and may include towed hydrographic mapping systems, towed camera systems, autonomous vertical profilers and Voluntary Observation Ship instrumentation systems.

“It’s wonderful to have such an experienced ocean tech entrepreneur added to the COVE family”, said Jim Hanlon, CEO of COVE. “Dartmouth Ocean Technologies Inc. embodies the commercialization of new ocean research that we seek to support at COVE.”

“I am pleased to be landing at COVE and joining the community with such a rich collection of ocean technology focused individuals and companies,” said Arnold Furlong, President of DOT. “We have already found synergy with some of the tenants and look forward to working together to be the best in the world at what we do.”

COVE is home to local and global ocean technology businesses, post-secondary institutions, researchers, and marine-based and service businesses that support the ocean sector. The COVE site features extensive marine facilities with two large, deep-water piers, office space, an incubator and space for shops and labs.
