Marine Hound

Marine Hound, a Malta-based maritime start-up, has just secured €100,000 in funding and will thus be progressing to the next phase in the Blue Economy Acceleration Programme.

Founder Nicholas Borg Calleja recently pitched his start-up’s marine pollution measurement information business proposition to said programme.

Marine Hound is seeking to put forward an innovative sulphur emissions sniffer system in a bid to help the marine industry reach its sulphur limits target efficiently and cost effectively.

The start-up is looking to install gas analysers around harbours, which will, in turn, be on the look out to detect high sulphur emissions.

When such emissions are detected, a drone is deployed to gather samples from potentially offending vessels. Marine Hound then analyses said samples and provides detailed and actionable data to enforcers, thus making it easier for authorities to move the shipping industry towards full sulphur cap compliance.

“In the next six months, we will be accelerating key milestones, working with our strategic partners from Finland and Estonia to integrate novel gas analyser and drone technologies, and consolidate the hardware and software solution in Malta,” Ing. Borg Calleja said.

The Founder went on to note that Marine Hound will be participating at the Valletta Tech Summit by contributing to the panel discussion ‘IoT Propelling Sustainability’.

The Blue Economy Acceleration Programme is organised by Centro Technológico Naval y del Mar (CTN) and managed by DigiCirc.
