Digitalisation connectivity on the North Sea at OEEC

Updated: Dec 29, 2023

SkyNet IoT is proud to have participated in the Offshore Energy Exhibition & Conference (OEEC) 2023, at the invitation of the Rijksdienst voor Ondernemend Nederland (RVO). During the event, we presented our innovative vision and ambitious plans for further digitalization of the North Sea.

In our we presentation we unveiled our strategy and vision to expand LoRa® (Long Range) IoT connectivity at the North Sea. This move positions us as the first to simultaneously offer LoRaWAN® hosting of multiple private, commercial, and public networks / operators. This approach ensures that SkyNet IoT stations are multifunctional and not exclusive, with minimal impact on the living environment and lower operational costs for network operators and users.

The SkyNet IoT network stands out for supporting global roaming across connected networks, with more than one million stations worldwide connected to the SkyNet IoT network. SkyNet IoT offers maximum coverage and hosting that flexibly adapts to market developments, without the need for users to switch networks.

With the further digitalization of the 'SkyNet IoT at Sea' networks in the North Sea, we are accelerating the development of a standardized and harmonized digital infrastructures. This stimulates innovative collaboration projects, strengthens the national and international research and innovation ecosystem, and promotes growth and export in North Sea-related sectors.

The LoRaWAN® infrastructure, designed for long-distance communication with low energy consumption, supports wireless sensors that operate for years on a battery or solar power. By implementing small stations at strategic locations, such as North Sea platforms, wind turbines, and ships, we guarantee broad connectivity and coverage.

This technology can be used for various applications, including monitoring the living environment and/or securing wind farms, solar parks, farms, and infrastructure, and for locating cargos, shipping, and quickly locating water sports enthusiasts and drowning victims. With this IoT development, we are transforming the North Sea into the world's first 'smart sea', equipped with an independent, shared multi LoRaWAN® IoT network connectivity for everyone.

We are committed to developing, expanding, and maintaining the LoRaWAN® “Internet of Things” network in the North Sea, to support all users and promote safety, sustainability, and efficiency in various sectors.

We thank the Rijksdienst voor Ondernemend Nederland (RVO), Rijkswaterstaat, Connectivity Fieldlab North Sea (CFNS), visitors, interested parties, and relations.

We look forward to working with stakeholders and project partners to further improve connectivity and safety at the seas.
