NEMO / Coral restoration system


NEMO is a 4 stage service helping municipalities to restore reefs in an efficient, sustainable way, with large-scale capacity. It consists of a digital platform which helps scientists to research and monitor coral reefs more accurately and efficiently. The second part is a specialized transport box. It supports corals during their relocation from the nursery site to the outplant site. The last piece is a collaborative drone which has two different purposes. One function is to help monitor by 3D scanning and mapping of coral reefs. The other function is to support outplanting processes by carrying up to 100 corals to the outplant site.
