Exeter-based HydroSurv has moved into brand new facilities to deliver expansion in production capacity for its state-of-the-art Uncrewed Surface Vessels (USVs) for hydrographic and environmental data collection.
Located centrally in Exeter’s Marsh Barton industrial estate, HydroSurv’s new 6000ft² premises incorporate facilities for design, manufacturing and the final assembly of USVs from 2.8-8.6m in size, enabling the company to efficiently scale deployment of its technology.
The new facility in Exeter currently hosts 15 employees, with the company expecting headcount to increase to more than 30 over the next 12 months.
Founder & CEO, David Hull said:
“These new facilities mark our continued investment and commitment to the development and deployment of Uncrewed Surface Vessel technology. As our team has grown steadily over the past year, it was obviously only going to be a matter of time before we ran out of space. Everyone is excited and optimistic about the way the venture has grown, and these new workspaces will enable us to increase our efficiency and strengthen our production capacity for the future.”
HydroSurv entered the ocean technology sector in 2019 as a new designer and builder of innovative USVs. The company has grown sustainably over the past three years and now operates offices in both the UK and Canada.
