Scale-Up member Actisense has been named as the Best Marine Tech Company at the South Coast Tech Awards 2020.

The Poole-based company develops remote data systems – for marine electronics to make journeys safer and smart farming equipment which results in higher yields.

The South Coast Tech Awards celebrate innovators and leaders in technology across multiple sectors. The Marine sector is of significant importance to the UK economy and the judges cited Actisense’s impressive technology and innovation as well as their adaptability to other vertical markets.

Phil Whitehurst, Managing Director at Actisense said: “Thank you to the judges and organisers! This is a wonderful accolade for our hard-working team. We’ve been active in the marine technology sector for 23 years now, and we are amazed by the constant innovation by the sector as a whole. We are spurred on to create ever-more creative solutions for our sector’s biggest electronics challenges. Completely humbled and grateful for this award.

Actisense has ambitious plans for growth. The team is developing an Innovate UK Smart Grant application alongside the University of Bath to develop a new, low-cost Digital Level Sensor that’s versatility will enable it to be used in many environments where accurate measures are critical and are currently only available at a higher cost.

By bringing this to the market we hope to maintain our 83% of turnover from export as we both grow and diversify our markets.
