Longline brake

Magik Web Geni maritime, Réalisation

Commercial groundfish fishing is practiced in Québec with trawl, gillnets or longlines. The longline consists of a main line on which hooks are arranged with branchlines. The launching of the longline (up to 1000 baited hooks) however requires a lot of skill and is at high risk of injury. The goal of the project was to design, manufacture and test …

Potential of forest biomass bio-oils for marine transport

Magik Web Réalisation, Technologies environnementales

The use of biofuels as a substitute or supplement to fossil fuels is one of the strategies to further reduce the carbon footprint of marine transport. In this context, the research project carried out by SEREX and Innovation maritime, in partnership with the client, aimed to validate the possibility of developing a mixed fuel based on diesel and biofuels derived …

Website consulting water levels along the North Traverse

imar Navigation, Réalisation

In the North crossing, pilots are passing ships of strong drafts using the tides. However, there may be differences between predictions and observations of water levels. In order to facilitate their work, the client wanted to equip themselves with computer tools for planning and monitoring the transits of their ships in the North crossing. Innovation maritime has therefore developed a …

Development of travel optimization software (loading/unloading)

imar Navigation, Réalisation

Unloading operations include more than one site and are often complex. Transshipment sequences, tidal effects, currents and navigation restrictions create delays in operations, leading to significant costs that could be avoided with better operations planning. The software developed by Innovation maritime uses NOAA data and takes into account all the constraints necessary to plan the different stages of a trip. …

Real-time remote monitoring system for professional diving and hyperbaric medicine

Magik Web Plongée professionnelle, Réalisation

The aim of this project was to develop a system for remote broadcasting and monitoring of dive parameters and video streams to facilitate real-time management and supervision of professional diving and hyperbaric treatment activities. The developed system retrieves video streams and other data relevant to diving and hyperbaric treatment (from the AxDDM system of the company AXSUB) and transfers them …
