Industries & Applications

The Aanderaa products are utilized in many different applications ranging from the deep depths of oceanography, to the highest peaks with our meteorology line. Our products are along the road characterizing traffic, on oil rigs ensuring safe working loads for cranes and on wheel loaders and excavators preforming dynamic measurements of load.

Oceanography

Oceanography

Aanderaa products have played important roles within the oceanographic community since 1966. The Aanderaa Current Meters were from the beginning known for their reliability and were early considered as "the standard" when it came to current measurements. Over the years the oceanographic product portfolios have undergone an evolution and the range of products have been broadened substantially. Today the oceanographic products are utilizing the newest technology comprising, among others, the most powerful microcontrollers and digital signal processors. Advanced software solutions and powerful processors are utilized in the data loggers, and XML– and modern Bus technology give safe and fast data transfer. Sensors are utilizing the most advanced multi-frequency acoustic technology as well as optical technology.

Ports & Harbours

Ports & Harbours

About Aanderaa

About Aanderaa

Aanderaa's roots were formed in the need to make reliable measurements in the earth's most harsh environments. Founded in the early 1960s by Ivar Aanderaa, the Aanderaa name quickly became synonymous for robust and reliable instrument solutions for oceanographic and other environmental measurements. Now as part of Xylem, Inc., the Aanderaa reputation for data quality, reliability, and excellent customer support continues to serve the global need to have better, smarter, and more robust sensor and systems solutions.

History

In the 1960's, Ivar Aanderaa, the company founder, was instrumental with several inventions needed to solve the technological challenges for deep sea exploration. The initial need was to design an instrument that could measure ocean currents of long periods of time at great depths. In the deep ocean, the challenges are numerous including pressure, corrosion, and other forces of nature. And at the end of the day, you had to provide power and a means of recording data.  Aanderaa, in collaboration with the Christian Michelsen Institute, developed the advancements needed including the first analog to digital converter that could fit in a pressure tube capable of withstanding deep ocean depths. This revolutionary invention ensured low power operation with reliable sensor technology and enabled Aanderaa's instrumentation to be deployed for several years while recording data continuously. These early inventions set the pace for what became a legendary reputation for durability and reliability in instrumentation.

The first long term current series

In 1968, four current meters were deployed in the Weddell Sea for what was planned to be a one year project to observe the largest source of Atlantic bottom water. Due to unfavorable ice conditions, the current meters couldn't be recovered until 5 years later - 4 years later than planned. Two of the four current meters were recovered and despite the 5 years in the sea, the tapes contained 12,000 hourly operations of quality data. This was at the time the longest time series ever obtained and word was spread among scientists around the world about the Aanderaa current meters. Providing reliable long term deployment data has been the vision for Aanderaa from the very beginning and up until today.

Today's Aanderaa

As part of the Analytics division of Xylem, Aanderaa has access to and actively collaborates with other companies within the family giving us global access to our customer base and systems integration capabilities in remote parts of the world.

With all the changes going forward, our reputation for integrated, reliable solutions still forms the backbone of our culture.  We are looking forward to what the future brings.
