The Awards recognize the achievement of organisations and individuals from the highest echelons of Ireland’s Marine Industry. The Water Institute is shortlisted in the category of Digital Oceans Award and Laboratory Award for its outstanding research in the area of marine technologies.

MESTECH @ The Water Institute is leading in the area of autonomous marine sensor development. Using our multidisciplinary expertise in biosensors, optical sensors, microchip platforms, video imaging, image processing and information extraction, we create end-to-end, next generation, sensor technology systems for monitoring water quality. All sensors developed (phosphate sensor, nutrient sensor, algal toxin sensor, low cost optical sensor and an ecoli sensor) have been successfully deployed in the marine. The sensors hold potential for huge environmental impact, and successful commercialization.
