PartracLogo blue small  USE THIS ONEPartrac – the Glasgow-based marine survey and data acquisition specialist – is holding a free expert seminar on marine turbulence – at the Wave & Tidal conference, being held on February 26-27 in Belfast.

Partrac founding Director Kevin Black is due to speak at the event, along with Claire Hinton from ABPmer and Tom Clark from Ocean Array Systems, following an introduction by George Smith, Partrac’s Business Development Manager.

More than 600 delegates – including investors, project and technology developers including decision makers from government and business with responsibilities across the UK, Europe and international markets – are expected to attend the conference.

Formed in 2003, Partrac is headquartered in Glasgow and operates across the UK and worldwide. Clients include the US Navy, Scottish Power Renewables and Westminster Boskalis.  

Originally set up to provide particle tracking (hence the name ‘par-trac’) and sediment monitoring services, Partrac now operates across a number of sectors including offshore renewables, the water industry, the ports and harbours sector, and the dredging industry.

Director Sam Athey said: “The key to our success is being client-focused, responding to clients’ needs and helping them design their projects so that their data objectives can be met in the safest, most efficient and cost-effective way. Good, quality data is very powerful.’
