September 8, 2020 – Kraken Robotics Inc., Canada’s Ocean Company, is pleased to announce that on September 1st, it signed a contract to supply minehunting systems to the Polish Navy. As part of this contract, Kraken will deliver its KATFISH™ towed Synthetic Aperture Sonar, Tentacle® Winch and Autonomous Launch and Recovery System (ALARS) in the second half of 2021. Kraken’s equipment will be integrated onboard the Polish Navy’s new KORMORAN II Mine CounterMeasure (MCMV) vessels in Gdansk, Poland.
Karl Kenny, Kraken President and CEO noted: “We are very pleased to sign this contract to supply our KATFISH™ and ALARS systems for the Polish Navy’s new minehunting vessels. Kraken is honoured to be working with such a strong NATO ally. Due to confidentiality reasons, Kraken cannot disclose specifics about the contract – other than to say that it is significant and that we expect it to be a strong enabler within other NATO nations. Should the Polish Navy be successful in exporting its new KORMORAN II MCMVs to other countries, we could see additional KATFISH™ and ALARS sales opportunities in these international markets.”
