UK headquartered Seiche Water Technology Group has announced that Pete Bromley has been appointed as Group Engineering Director with immediate effect.
Pete will be leading the new product development lines, forging new synergies across the engineering teams and overseeing technical road maps for the individual operating companies.
Pete began his career at BAE Systems within its Underwater Systems Division. During his 9 years with the company, his role included software development, systems engineering and project management. He moved on to Tidal Energy Ltd as Engineering Manager where he was instrumental in the design and deployment of the DeltaStream project – the first full scale tidal energy device to be installed and grid connected in Wales in 2016. Prior to taking up his Group role, Pete was Technical Manager and then Managing Director at AutoNaut Ltd.
Pete’s first priority will be to finalise Seiche’s new mini thermal-imaging and Ultra HD camera system with automated cetacean detection software coming to market in early 2021. This compact, marinised and powerful camera system with gyro stabilisation is designed for marine mammal observation and a range of surveillance and survey operations to meet the regulatory demands required for offshore wind developers and offshore energy contractors across the world.
Pete comments: “I am really excited to take up this role as Seiche Group evolves to meet new market needs, particularly in the offshore renewables sector. Our engineering teams are working flat out to deliver innovative technologies to our clients with a key focus on enhanced autonomy, AI and data fusion.”
Pete will continue to provide technical leadership for the AutoNaut USV development as part of the Seiche Group.
