Seas of Solutions is a new organisation based on the foundation of globally recognised safety electronics brands McMurdo, Netwave and Kannad Marine. Our vision is to support safer sailing, anytime – everywhere.
Seas of Solutions purchased Orolia Maritime’s innovative emergency readiness and response brands in April 2021, establishing Netwave Systems BV and McMurdo Ltd under the Seas of Solutions umbrella.
With a reputation for innovations that include Galileo powered 406MHz distress beacons, the world’s first Return Link Service PLB, a unique AIS EPIRB range and the newly upgraded NW6000 VDR and retrofit solutions, our mission is to offer reliable, innovative marine electronics that help improve robust data capture and maximise crew survivability.
Our goal is to position Seas of Solutions as the global leader in quality marine safety products, building on the award winning solutions offered by the existing brands and creating new enhanced offerings to meet the growing performance improvement opportunities in the marine industry. Led by technical innovation, response to legislative change and opportunities that arise from a dynamic marine industry, Seas of Solutions offer our global customers the tools and partnership they need to support crew and vessel safety.
Headquartered in Zoetermeer, (NL) and with a customer service and training hub in Portsmouth (UK) and a Baltimore (US) distribution centre, Seas of Solutions Kannad Marine and McMurdo branded EPIRBs, SARTs and VHF radios have been at the heart of supporting the mandated GMDSS safety requirement since its full implementation in 1999 and have been a driving force in the adoption of AIS SART technology.
Our product portfolio is recognised for having revolutionised marine safety with the development of the first compact Personal Locator Beacon (PLB) and has continued to drive the adoption of lifesaving technology with the first AIS MOB device in 2012, the first AIS EPIRB in 2017 and the first Galileo PLB in 2018. That innovation continues with the latest FastFind PLB released in March 2021, the world’s first to include the Return Link Service.
Our Netwave NW6000 brand VDR’s are renowned for innovation and quality, in both the new build and retrofit commercial shipping markets. The NW6000 was upgraded in 2020 and offers a range of dynamic features to improve the ease and speed of installation, while the V2 player offers world leading data representation to enhance the value of VDR data in training, post-accident analysis and fleet comparison.
In 2022 we will showcase our next generation of products, with a new FastFind AIS MOB joining the FastFind RLS PLB in celebrating the brands twentieth year, while the Netwave Compact offers a commercial grade VDR software for inland waterways, superyachts, and workboat vessels. The new solution is designed for ease of installation and offers dynamic sensor connections to capture the vessel data offering the most critical operation value.
As a dedicated, marine focused organisation, our aim is to utilise our industry knowledge, unparalleled sales and service network and newly refined structure to offer our partners and customers the dynamic response they need for maritime safety.
