First anchor tech revolution in centuries
An anchored ship is more at risk of collision and crew injuries, yet anchoring technology has remained unchanged for hundreds of years. The EU-funded AnchorGuardian project has a smart technology that monitors anchor movements and warns of imminent danger. Its creator, start-up Swiss Ocean Tech, hopes the technology will be regarded as standard maritime equipment to protect captains, crew, passengers and yacht owners within 10 years. They are currently working towards commercializing this disruptive, patented technology and have already established proof-of-concept product as well as completed market research. The maritime industry agrees that anchoring is still too dangerous and is ready to receive a solution like AnchorGuardian for maritime navigation.
