Drones-as-a-service provider Delta Drone International (ASX:DLT) has secured a five-
year contract renewal after being successfully reappointed as its aerial data services provider in
South Africa by global mining and metals company, South 32 (ASX:S32).
The renewed agreement, worth A$2.7 million was signed after a successful six years of Delta Drone
International providing its leading drones-as-a-service capabilities across mine surveying and real-time data collection services. The contract has normal termination clauses for non-performance.
Delta Drone International CEO, Christopher Clark, said he is thrilled to be reappointed by its enterprise customer as their preferred data services provider:
“We are honoured to be reappointed by our long-standing enterprise customer, South 32, and look forward to delivering their real-time data needs through our fully integrated drone-as-a-service business for the years to come.
“This reappointment is a testament to our Rocketmine brand and our people on the ground servicing our mining customers every day. Having a tailored data solution specifically for the mining industry allows us to remove any challenges that come with aerial data collection such as rapid technology advancements and rules and regulations and allows our customers to focus on their core business operations.
“By offering a full fleet of state-of-the-art drones capable of a magnitude of data collection tasks, along with the latest software and fully qualified pilots, we can solve a range of challenges our mining customers face. Our ability to quickly pivot and provide services outside our core remit to solve additional data challenges is a real bonus for our customers and will become a must-have for businesses looking to outsource data services in the future.”
This announcement has been authorised for release by the Board of Delta Drone International Limited.
