Welcome to Seatrec

Seatrec was founded in 2016 by our CEO, Dr. Yi Chao. Our core technology originated at NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology, to provide clean power for remote off-grid locations. With funding from private investors, government grants, and industry contracts, Seatrec further developed this thermal energy technology and released its first commercial product in 2019. We're continuing to build a robust product line of power solutions and computational tools for offshore applications including seafloor mapping, meteorology, and marine animal conservation.
