2021 Year in Review - BRUVS Diaspora

In 2021, we were busy delivering BRUVS gear around the world. In addition to providing equipment to Universities as varied as University of Exeter in the UK, the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology in Saudi Arabia, and the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki in Greece, we were also fortunate enough to deliver BRUVS to some incredible NGO's such as The Nature Conservancy, National Geographic's Pristine Seas, and the Palau International Coral Reef Center.

Typically we send out our Expedition Boxes, which not only contain convertible Carbon Fibre BRUVS, but all the equipment necessary to be ready to deploy as soon as the gear is received. From ropes to buoys, to screwdrivers and spare nuts and bolts we make sure the local teams are ready to go. After all, it is hard to run down to the store at Rothera (Antartic Peninsula) if you're looking for spare parts.

Announced in the spring of 2021, our biggest project so far has been the Global Ocean Wildlife Analysis Network which is part of the United Kingdom Government's Blue Belt Programme. We spent the rest of the year delivering Expedition Box BRUVS to the majority of the Overseas Territories including:

Blue Abacus BRUVS rigs are made from carbon fibre, making them incredibly light and strong. They are easy to deploy from small vessels and can be used in a variety of conditions and locations. As such their adoption by a wide variety of users has been both immediate and successful.

Overall, more than 125 BRUVS rigs were sent around the world by Blue Abacus in 2021. A great start for understanding more about all of our oceans.
