Scantrol and Scantrol Deep Vision

Scantrol AS and Scantrol Deep Vision AS are located in Bergen, Norway. Scantrol has delivered control systems to trawls and cranes all over the world for more than three decades and has an extensive experience with developing technology for the marine research and trawl fisheries markets.

Scantrol was a partner in the CRISP Centre for Research-based Innovation (SFI) led by the Institute of Marine Research in Bergen. The Deep Vision trawl camera and sorting technology was developed in this center and led to the spin-off company Scantrol Deep Vision. Today, the technology is commercialized for marine research and used to sample fish from images in the trawl without bringing any catch onboard. The technology is being further developed into a catch identification and sorting device for commercial trawlers.

In CRIMAC, the companies will leverage the force of collaboration between leading scientific institutions and private companies to bring the successful technology even further. Deep Vision will both complement and support the interpretation of acoustic data.
