Dr. P. Chandramohan

Managing Director

Dr. P. Chandramohan, Managing Director of the company is a former scientist from CSIR-NIO, Goa. He has served 25 years in NIO as Scientist and Head of Ocean Engineering Group. He holds more than 45 years of rich scientific experience in Coastal Engineering discipline beginning with studies relating to shoreline protection for ISRO-Thumba Rocket Launching Station in Trivandrum, followed by 25 years of scientific mission in NIO centered around complete understanding of the complex dynamics of unique Indian coast and its amiability for the development of coast based infrastructure projects.

He is the first Indian expert to publish a data-based Wave Atlas for entire Indian Coast which, even today is the basic data source for the user industries in planning and designing of coastal projects.

His publications on Littoral Drift along the entire Indian coast still stand tall as valuable reference tools among the Researchers, Academicians and Practicing Engineers. During his tenure in NIO he published more than 60 papers and carried out more than 70 Consultancy projects. His unquenchable thirst for knowledge gained on the basis of 22 years of R & D experience Scientific management experience in NIO, provided the necessary impetus and motivation to bridge the prevailing gap between Research oriented Science’ and ‘Application starving Industries’. Various users in our country were desperately looking for scientific guidance in utilizing the ocean, but communication and co-ordination between the scientists and the user industry was lacking for a long time. This missing link of transformation of science into application stalled the effective utilization of ocean and consequently the development in India in general. With a view to breaking this impasse, he established the Oceanographic Consultancy Company ‘Indomer Coastal Hydraulics’ under the CSIR-NIO Entrepreneurship Scheme in April 1998. And today as a result of sincere efforts and perseverance over a span of 21 years, Indomer has emerged as the best equipped and efficiently managed Institution in India among private sector to undertake various types of oceanographic projects under his leadership.

Indomer has carried out more than 650 projects along the Indian coast spanning from Sundarbans in east turning over Kanyakumari peninsula till Kori creek in the west establishing its unique contribution on the development of coast based infrastructure-which is sine qua non for the growth of Indian economy in more ways than one.
