Nortek has seen market expansion and increased demand for our products. To prepare us for further expansion, two new engineers have now joined Nortek’s sales department.
Researchers from University of Delaware and Texas A&M University have used the Nortek Vectrino Profiler to understand swash zone hydrodynamics and foreshore response during beach recovery.
For a decade, Nortek was proud to support academic research with the Student Equipment Grant program, a unique opportunity spearheaded by Nortek’s USA office in 2004 to aid graduate students with free loans of Nortek equipment and travel grants to present their research.
The Port of Morgan City, Louisiana, an important port supporting the oil and gas industry as well as commodity imports and exports, recently installed an NOAA PORTS® monitoring system to improve navigational safety.
Researchers from the University of Waikato in New Zealand deploy Aquadopp Profilers, Vectors, and Vectrinos in the Mekong Delta to gain an understanding of the effect the mangrove system has on currents and waves.
Nortek is supporting a formal graduate level course in coastal and maritime engineering, which will give students an in depth education in wave theory, measurement, and modeling.
