Hello oPod

A network of ocean guardians

oPods prime the pumps that
power life on our planet.

An orca-sized aquabot with a host of applications

Sustainable Aquaculture

Wave-powered oPods are designed to bring cold, oxygenated water to aquaculture pens, removing the need for diesel-powered generators. They can form a base for ecosystem-enhanced wild catch fisheries.

Coral restoration

oPods can bring cool water to ‘cushion’ the effect of temperature spikes on coral reefs, and restore bleached coral to full bloom again.

Ocean Intelligence

oPods are equipped with multiple sensors to measure and record ocean health. A global network of ‘ocean intelligence’ could hold the key to unlocking future marine science.

Carbon capture

oPods promote the growth of microscopic algae called phytoplankton. Phytoplankton doubles in size, every day, capturing carbon and oxygenating the atmosphere at a phenomenal rate.

New 2024 Octopods have oceans of power

1 OctoPod will recirculate 17 Olympic swimming pools in an hour.

20 OctoPods will recirculate the equivalent of Sydney Harbour (-562GL) in a month.

110 OctoPods will recirculate the equivalent of the Grand Canyon (~4.7T) in a year.

Octo Pod

43,624 cubic metres per hour upwelling capacity. The equivalent volume of 17 Olympic swimming pools, every hour.

CoralPod: Great Barrier Reef guardian

Tethered oPods collect deep, cold water bringing it directly to an oPod 'sprinkler' at the reef, where it’s distributed.
This cool water can lower spikes in temperature and balance the conditions needed to restore the growth of coral ecosystems.
