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.
Nortek UK would like to invite you to our first Offshore Renewables Symposium which will be held on the 26th and 27th October at the Sheraton Skyline near Heathrow Airport and focus on the “Use of acoustic Doppler measurement technology in the field of offshore renewable Energy.”

Well, it isn't Michael Jackson but our latest 3D animation video with music from Guthrie Govan "Waves" is fun both to watch and listen to. A smaller version is available for download so you can explain to your relatives in 90 seconds what you do for a living.
Scientists and engineers from across the globe gathered last week in beautiful Newport, Rhode Island for three days of presentations and training sessions on the use of Nortek instruments.
This March, Nortek will be well represented at the IEEE/OES Tenth Current, Waves and Turbulence Conference. Ten papers featuring research performed with the use of Nortek AWACs, Z-cells, Aquadopps, and Vectrinos will be presented.
With the enormous focus on deep-water offshore activity in Brazil lately Nortek is pleased to announce the opening of our new office in Rio de Janeiro.
What a fantastic atmosphere! What an impressive list of highly interesting presentations!

We are pleased to announce that Nortek has been recertified for another three years under the ISO 9001:2008 standard. This means that the auditors have found that our production, development and distribution system for Doppler velocity systems are in compliance with the requirements of the standards.
After a period of relative calm, we stand in front of a new year that we hope will bring important news in the form of new Doppler products and models. In the spirit of sharing, we have put down a few thoughts about 2009/2010 and what the new developments will mean for the measurement of ocean and coastal processes.
Remember a year ago, when we announced the sale of 28 Vectrinos to State Key Laboratory of Coastal and Offshore Engineering of Dalian University of Technology in China? These have since then been put into operation, in a fairly spectacular sensor setup.
Nortek in the US has partnered with WaveForce Technologies to provide a new comprehensive directional wave post-processing software toolbox called "Wavector"
Kongsberg Maritime has developed a new system for measuring ocean currents along drilling risers. The data can be intergrated with the Kongsberg HiPAP positioning system to improve control of drilling operations.
In an effort to manage our continued growth, we have posted several important and exciting new job openings. The new people will complement our existing organization and help prepare us for our next leap as an independent oceanographic instrument manufacturer.
Part of Nortek’s success is the result of an excellent marketing and sales performance on the international market. To continue and further develop these activities, we look for a dynamic and open minded:
