Operations at sea are often associated with particular challenges. Many areas are poorly accessible, there are special safety requirements and challenging environmental conditions. This results in higher efforts, elevated costs and reduced flexibility. With modern offshore drones, technical applications can be targeted to make them safer, more efficient and more flexible.
For inspections and monitoring tasks, drones provide visual, thermal and additional data quickly and with little staff required. This helps the inspection of offshore wind farms, offshore platforms and other structures at sea. Ships and other vehicles can also be inspected in areas which are difficult to access. The costs for staff are low due to the one-person operation and the safety is also significantly higher than with complex cable access techniques.
UAVs also offer several advantages in the field of logistics. The transport of mail, documents and material, on a single ship or between ships, is greatly facilitated. The complete automation of workflows makes the drone application particularly safe and uncomplicated.
Especially solutions like the “Pyrodrohne” demonstrate that even the control of oil pollution at sea can be simplified and improved with drones.
