SEA-Tech Evolution exporting MADE IN IRELAND expertise

Cork based company SEA-Tech Evolution, Ireland's marine ICT infrastructure solutions provider, has successfully been awarded its first international contract for 2016, for the provision of combined wireless HiPerLan in France. Utilising its proven technologies from the Port of Cork SMARTPORT solution, SEA-Tech Evolution designed a bespoke solution for use by the municipal authorities including the police and emergency services for the French town of Ittiville. In a contract worth close to half a million euros, work is now commencing on the delivery and installation of the accepted solution to create the first SMARTCITY network solution. This ambitious project demonstrates that Itteville’s Lord Mayor Alexandre Spada and his team see to the future of those living in Itteville, developing education, social, environment as well as security in a growing climate of incivility throughout the EU.

Supported by the Irish Minister for the Marine, Mr Simon Coveney TD, during its development from a start-up to commercial spin-off of the Irish Marine Energy Research Cluster (imerc), SEA-Tech Evolution has provided reliable, cost-effective and secure wireless communications to the Port of Cork Company. Utilising its flagship product - SeaFi - SEA-Tech Evolution infrastructure provides the network backbone for the SMARTPORT concept.
SEA-Tech Evolution Chief Technical Officer, Mr Arnaud Disant said "Having developed, deployed and proven the SMARTPORT capability with our partners in the Port of Cork Company, and with support from the Irish Naval Service during testing, SEA-Tech Evolution knew that the concept could be transferred to other non-marine uses such as secure municipal HiPerLan, agriculture, military and emergency services applications.
SEA-Tech Evolution are looking to expand and develop its business and are actively looking to grow its workforce in Ireland, and abroad."SEA-Tech Evolution ICT infrastructure solutions are suitable for a wide range of industries and sectors in Ireland and overseas. With a proven reliability in the marine environment, land-based applications can be assured of reliable, secure and cost-effective HiPerLan network solutions from SEA-Tech" said Mr Disant.
