MSI, who also represent fellow Canadian companies RBR Ltd and AXYS Technologies, believes that the products MetOcean offer will complement the existing portfolio that they can offer to clients in Australia. “We believe that by representing leaders in their field, we can offer our clients high quality, customised systems that we also use extensively ourselves in our data acquisition business. MetOcean’s unique modular electronic designs are customisable to adapt to the data acquisition and processing system requirements of our clients.”

The connection with leading research organisations such as CSIRO and the Australian Antarctic Division for systems such as mooring tracking, data transmission and polar weather stations is obvious but the product range of MetOcean opens up new and diverse opportunities.

Speaking on behalf of MetOcean, Sales and Marketing Manager Emily Daniel stated ““We are extremely excited to have Metocean Services International (MSI) as part of the MetOcean agent family. MSI provides the highest quality of service and support to all of their customers and are a great addition to the MetOcean team.”

With offices in Australia & South Africa, and using state of the art equipment, MSI provides professional, cost effective solutions in response to their clients’ global requirements for accurate metocean information. In addition to MetOcean, MSI also exclusively represents RBR Ltd and AXYS Technologies in Australia.
