Best Digital Innovation Award Winners


Ultrabeam Hydrographic have scooped a prestigious Cornwall Live EDGE Award, winning Best Digital Innovation in the Marine Category at the 2018 awards.

“This is a great example of the groundbreaking innovations that are coming out of Cornwall and having an impact on marine technology around the world," says Marine Hub Cornwall Operations Director, Matt Hodson, of the company. "It is really inspiring to be working alongside these pioneering businesses. Many congratulations to Ultrabeam Hydrographic.”

The EDGE Awards were set up in 2017 to celebrate Cornwall’s place as one of the fastest-growing areas for digital and tech businesses in the country. This year, the awards have highlighted digital innovation across a number of sectors where Cornwall is leading the way, including marine technology.

“Winning the ‘Digital Innovation in Marine’ category is great news for us," says Ultrabeam's Managing Director Andy McLeay. "As a relatively young company, this is our first award, so it is especially exciting. It is fantastic to receive this vote of confidence in our technology, and wonderful to be part of this vibrant business community, with all the support it offers. Cornwall is an outstanding location for our marine tech business.”
