Deep Trekker has been selected to received a Product Innovation Award at the CANIE (Canada Innovation & Entrepreneurship) Ontario 2020 Awards. The company was chosen from a pool of more than 400 applicants from across Canada, due to its innovative submersible robot technology.
Deep Trekker’s remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) are designed to perform a wide range of tasks in challenging environmental situations. Currently operating in ten different industries worldwide, Deep Trekker’s camera-equipped underwater robotic vehicles are versatile, durable and capable.
The company has most recently launched the DTG3 and REVOLUTION ROVs and its BRIDGE intelligent technology operating system, and has also opened a new office in Puerto Montt, Los Lagos, Chile, in addition to being named recipient of the Greater Kitchener Waterloo Chamber of Commerce Business of the Year Award.
The CANIE Awards are the flagship program of the Innovators and Entrepreneurs Foundation, and are designed to recognize excellence in Canadian innovation and entrepreneurship. By sharing the award recipients’ stories of resilience and success, the CANIE Awards aim to inspire and encourage future entrepreneurs.
Due to COVID-19, CANIE will be presenting the 2020 awards ceremony digitally, in partnership with Sovereign Insurance and UPS Canada. Deep Trekker will be honoured on Thursday, May 28th at 1:00pm EDT in the 2020 CANIE Ontario Awards as The Innovators & Entrepreneurs Foundation (IEF), in collaboration with Startup Canada, will recognize 40 outstanding innovators and entrepreneurs from across Canada.
Sam Macdonald, President of Deep Trekker, commented: “As an organization that prides itself on constant innovation and development, we are honoured to accept the CANIE Ontario Region Product Innovation Award. The CANIE Awards are top in recognizing and encouraging excellence in Canada and we are thrilled to be a part of it.”
“Our robotics are designed to go places that aren’t typically seen. There is a tremendous amount of underwater infrastructure, operations, biology and ecology that people don’t always know about. We aim to create tools that help uncover that underwater world.”
