Blueye was founded in 2015 by Erik Dyrkoren, Martin Ludvigsen, Christine Spiten and Erik Haugane. Erik D. came from his position with SINTEF Ocean, while Martin runs the AUR-Lab at NTNU AMOS - Centre for Autonomous Marine Operations and Systems. Together with Christine Spiten they joined forces to create technology that made access to what´s below the surface easier. Angel investor Erik Haugane liked the idea, came onboard and funded the foundation of the company.
The company originally had the consumer market in mind but as the team never compromised on creating a user friendly and robust product, we pivoted into serving professional clients.
Blueye has delivered technology across a vast range of customer applications ranging from dam inspections, aquaculture, ship inspections, law enforcement, wastewater & drinking water management, marine surveillance, tourism and education (to mention some). Coming from Norway serving our home market has been the focus area. Still, we are fortunate to have clients in more than 40 countries worldwide.
