Bianca 2My name is Bianca Gedorio and I’m a college student in Cork College of Commerce, studying Computer Science. For two weeks, I am working for Sea-Tech.

I began my internship/work experience, as a technical support junior technician, on the 15th January and I enjoyed the amazing learning experience! Arnaud Disant, the Chief Technical Officer, has taught me a wide range of knowledge in both technical and life skills in a span of just two weeks!

For example, he showed me how radiowave works, like inside an antenna, and use it to create solutions on how to improve communications and

Merry Christmas

Today well over a million men and women live in the twilight world of big shipping (Source SCFS). They are responsible for most of the goods you will be consuming over the Christmas season. It's a lonely life. They don't get to spend Christmas with the family. They roam the world's oceans for up to 12 months at a time. They come from more than 100 different nations and speak dozens of language. For most of them accessing the internet is synonym of keeping in touch with the family.

This year we have worked with Port of Cork, Rosslare and

Internet@SEA

Recently at the National Maritime College of Ireland open day 2017, Nautilus International magazine challenged the next generation of seafarers with this very simple question: "Would the amount of Internet access affect your decision to work at sea?" An obvious yes brought us to the conclusion we are on the right path... We would like to take this to the next level with a series of polls. Our first one will help understanding the situation on board ships. If you are a seafarer, if you have been working at sea in the past couple of years, we'dlike to hear about you...

DO YOU HAVE A KNACK FOR MARINE TECHNOLOGY?

The National Maritime College of Ireland (NMCI) Open Day 2017 will be remembered. With 850 visitors, we hardly got time for a coffee with colleagues from NMCI, Port of Cork, CIL, Coast Guards, INS, etc…

Each year since 2013, SEA-Tech has been privileged to represent the marine electrical and electronic industry among heavyweights of the shipping and cruise industry. It was at first a bit overwhelming but year after year we have made friends in each organisation, so now it’s more like the annual fair down the road. Also, having taught

Peace after the storm

It's been some week, hopefully we don't get it too often... Ireland completely shaken out is returning to work there are still trees hanging of the wires in the streets. Power has not yet resumed in some places, our technical support kept operating during the gale and we recorded some minor incidents here and there but no physical damages in Port of Cork, Port of Waterford, Rosslare Europort... Rochespoint lighthouse SeaFi C180 radio station has resisted the assault of the wind and the impact of strong waves... Spike Island "Bastion 5" thanks to the support of our friends from Cork

JcFHello everybody, my name is Jean-Christophe and I am on board with Sea-Tech Evolution Ltd. I just completed three months of Internship, as a sales & administration Intern. Each single day of these three months has been very intense and instructive. Never a dull moment at SEA-Tech said Levente Laposi a former intern in the company. It has been since our internship program's tag line...

Upon my first week, I had the opportunity to work with SeaFi Horizon on the Tug “MT Gerry O'Sullivan” with Arnaud, Will from SEA-Tech and also Steven from Port of Cork. It was my first opportunity

IMG 1090In 2016, in a green village in France called Saint Germain, some technicians from SeaTech came from the Emerald Isle to build a smart village system. It was a large network construction and when came the moment to power their devices to the smart box, technicians wondered what kind of magic would provide data and power both in a single connection cable.
The solution came from Texas, WifiTexas more specifically. Thanks to their POE injectors the green giants from SEA-Tech would help the villagers and plenty of sensors and cameras were powered, saving endless runs of useless electrical wire… Good

 Merchant Tug Gerry O'Sulllivan - Port of Cork - Ireland

Retrofitting on a ship is in most cases a nightmare for any marine electronics engineer. There is usually no documentation, no space, and few ships have actually been built to date with computer networking in mind... Our chief Engineer  spent a day at sea last week with two shipmates running 30 meters of cable on a large ferry. Wireless is a nice thing, but guess what, ships are mostly made of steel, and radio-waves can’t travel through it. Besides, there is one thing a decent CAT6 will do that radio-waves

Middle watch 0000-0400 - First bell...  Today as I was unsure about the exact explanation of why we were receiving so many radiowaves in provenence of the Celtic Sea, on Saturday, I've decided to prove Cicero right one more time and I when meeting one of my student (Ian B.) who teaches Radio Communications in NMCI. 

 

As it happens with easterly wind and lots of sun heating France and the UK during the day like a giant radiator a lot of hot air pushed by the wind has acted like a super amplifier on our radiowaves. Duct effect caused
