SurfZoneView part of KiwiNet Awards

MetOcean Solutions is proud to be part of the KiwiNet Research Commercialisation Awards. Last week, we attended awards night, where shortlisted New Zealand innovators shared how they are bringing their ground-breaking research to market.

The Kiwi Innovation Network (KiwiNet) is New Zealand’s network of public research organisations, working together to transform scientific discoveries into marketable products and services. MetOcean Solutions and the Defence Technology Agency were nominated for SurfZoneView, a software tool which helps safely plan nearshore operations such as landing vessels, personnel or supplies.
