French ocean science institute acquires stake in Forssea Robotics

The French Research Institute for Exploitation of the Sea (Institut français de recherche pour l’exploitation de la mer; Ifremer) has acquired an equity interest in local unmanned systems specialist Forssea Robotics.

Forssea claims the investment by Ifremer will allow the company to accelerate diversification in the sectors of marine renewable energy and deep-sea scientific exploration.

The two parties are already discussing deployment of Forssea’s remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) and other related systems in Ifremer’s upcoming scientific campaigns.
