Between 2007 and the end of 2015 alone, Novega equipped more than 30,000 large ships with underwater locating devices, making it the world‘s undisputed market and technological leader for ULDs in the maritime sector. This success confirms our expertise in developing and constructing acoustic beacons for underwater location operations. But most of all, it shows that Novega‘s locating devices stand for precision and reliability – even when exposed to extreme weather conditions at sea.
