What is your favourite feature of the OWC network?

Scanreach has a fantastic solution, however the fascinating parts of what we do is getting data wirelessly around a vessel in the most difficult environments (big steel structures). Secondly, we are able to take data from any sensor around a vessel without the owner / operator having to waste valuable time and money on pulling cables. Installation is typically done by the crew so you can be up and running in a couple of days not weeks or months

How do you enjoy spending your free time?”

I really enjoy time with my family, exploring the outdoors and playing golf. I also like to keep up to date with the latest technology and how it can be applied to the shipping industry.

Dan Slater, VP Sales & BD, ScanReach.

Why should the maritime industry update its technology and mindset?

“There are huge benefits to embracing technology and the maritime industry is well on its voyage of discovery. One of the biggest challenges facing the industry is not the amount of data (there is plenty of it) but it’s harvesting the data, bringing it together, and moving it around the vessel. Then understanding that data to provide value and actionable insights. The industry is getting there but there is still work to do in fully reaping the benefits of the modern day digitally connected vessel”

Dan is going to be a valuable asset to our company!


Over the last years, the ScanReach team has developed the breakthrough onboard wireless connectivity technology which enables data to travel anywhere on a maritime vessel without cabling. IoT sensor data in complex steel environments, such as vessels, rigs, and offshore wind turbines, is made available to management onboard and onshore.
