How It All Started
A brainchild of a maritime insurance expert as the CEO and an unmanned oil skimmer developer as the CTO, Sheco began in a start-up club in 2017 and established its corporate body in July 2019. It has developed various functions including “wireless/remote control, All In One configuration, electromagnetic LARS, modulization and etc.” to make “oil-skimming equipment quick and easy to use in pollution accidents for not only experts but also non-experts”. An oil-skimming robot developed through 18 prototypes over three years, Sheco Ark was selected for the SOC tech market, regulatory sandbox, innovative prototypes, and others in recognition of its technological advancement and necessity. Starting with Sheco Ark, it is developing technologies for "complete automation and smartification in handling pollution"
including autonomous driving, pollution-recognizing AI, GCS-integrated dashboard and etc.
1. The whale in its logo, which greatly contributes to the earth's ecosystems by helping the growth of phytoplankton and storing huge amounts of
carbon under the sea, symbolizes SHECO's ambition to make a significant impact on the marine environment industry.
2. The black color of its head symbolizes the polluted sea, while the green color of the body and tail symbolizes the purified emerald sea.
3. It represents the mechanism of Sheco Ark, the "marine purification drone," absorbing oil and seawater simultaneously from the surface, storing
them, and discharging only purified seawater.
"Going Green with Robotics" is the slogan which reflects SHECO’s determination and vision,
which is creating a "Greener Environment with Technology" and a "Greener Future where Environment and Technology Peacefully Co-exist."
