About us

We are InsensysIntegrated Sensing Systems.

We have been integrating our sensing systems into customer applications for 20 years. We are now 70 people strong organisation supplying the 3 leading offshore wind OEMs, and we’re developing sensing solutions to challenges in hydrogen, oil & gas, motorsport, aerospace and composite structures industries.



Dynamic, innovating and forward thinking since 2002

A growing private enterprise with a very blended culture

Queens Award for Enterprise for exports to the Renewables sector

Insensys is a fast growing British success story in fibre optic sensing technologies. We were founded 20 years ago as a manufacturer of specialist carbon fibre super yacht masts, we transitioned in 2008 to focus on our core business: Fibre optic sensing technology for offshore wind turbine control. Since then we have diversified into many niche markets using our innovative sensing solutions. Our headquarters are in Fareham, UK and we currently employee over 70 dedicated staff.

We started to work in Wind Energy 15 years ago, supplying early and current market leaders such as Gamesa (now part of Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy), LM Glasfiber (now LM Windpower, part of GE Renewables), and Vestas.

We currently supply the top 3 global OEMs as they ramp up their production lines, and we are actively engaged with their Onshore partners around new applications for large rotor onshore turbines.
