Enfotec Technical Services Inc., a subsidiary of Fednav Limited, provides support to enhance the safety and efficiency of navigation in ice and produces sea ice assessments and marine accessibility studies for current and projected shipping operations in ice-covered waters.
Enfotec supports Fednav’s operations in the Arctic and the Baltic regions with our expertise in ice dynamics and remote sensing. Furthermore, Enfotec’s involvement in research and development helps keep Fednav at the forefront of ice navigation knowledge and technology.
One example is the innovative use of aerial drones for ice reconnaissance onboard Fednav’s fleet of icebreakers used to establish the most efficient route through the ice, thereby reducing fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions.
In 2016, Enfotec won the coveted IBJ award for Innovative Technology for IceNav.
