Nortek staff traveled to Quebec City in November to help celebrate the inauguration of a large wave flume and provide on-site training for the new Vectrino II Profiling Velocimeter.
Nortek announced today that it has collaborated with the PUMA Ocean Racing team to develop a modified compact Doppler Velocity Log (DVL) for PUMA’s Mar Mostro Volvo Open 70 yacht competing in the Volvo Ocean Race 2011-2012. The project, which was completed over the course of the past year, has resulted in the successful integration of boat speed, leeway and in-situ ocean current readings. Translation: a secret weapon in the battle to go as fast and efficiently as possible.

We have a small batch of AWAC lithium batteries (14 V) that perform best in warm water. These batteries have the same nominal capacity as our standard lithium batteries (2000 Wh) but are only suitable for use in water temperatures above 15 deg C and for deployments that typically last longer than three months.
