We are based in the great maritime city of Liverpool, although
our vessel traffic monitoring and management systems
are in service across the world


the marlan approach


As you might expect from a company dedicated to enhancing safety and security in maritime environments, the Marlan story begins on the banks of a famous body of water. Our local maritime environment is the River Mersey as it flows through the great port city of Liverpool, UK. Having a view of the River Mersey from our rooftop sensor test facility allows us to continuously test and improve our vessel traffic monitoring and management systems close to home. Indeed, we are proud to call the Port of Liverpool one of our customers.

a talented team

With over 30 years’ combined experience between them, our team has always believed that delivering high quality, cost-effective systems is only part of our mission. Other crucial factors include forging strong relationships, building an understanding of each customer’s unique situation, and tailoring the solution to meet their needs. We then continue to offer all the expert advice and support they need to help make the most of their system and achieve the maritime safety and security they require.

the flexible solution

This flexible, adaptable approach means that every customer gets the solution that’s right for them, regardless of their size or budget. As their requirements change, their Marlan solution can change with them – an example of our belief in continuous improvement rather than built-in obsolescence. With our own IRIS Radar with Vision platform at the heart of each system, our solutions are modular and scalable, and built for the long term.

around the world

Within the UK, we operate as a systems integrator. This involves developing our own software, IT and electronics technologies, and integrating them with third-party products including radar, sensors, communications equipment, computers, networks and more. Outside the UK, we provide our software and expertise to local partners who handle the system integration with our full support. So not only are we interested in building relationships with potential customers, we are also always keen to speak to companies that can help us deliver a service to be proud of, wherever our customers are in the world.
