Aerodyne enters strategic partnership with Astralution to champion growth in the Scandinavian energy sector

Aerodyne Group, the world’s No 1 Drone Services Provider and also the world’s leading DT3 (Drone Technology, Data Technology, and Digital Transformation) company inked a strategic partnership with Astralution to offer leading Drone-as-a-Service (DaaS) and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions in the Scandinavian region.

Since 2014, Aerodyne has managed more than 560,000 infrastructure assets with
458,058 flight operations and managing over 380,000km of power infrastructure
across 35 countries globally. Aerodyne has also been providing cloud-based oil and gas infrastructure, powerline, offshore and onshore wind turbine, and solar panel inspection and management solutions, empowering clients to make strategic decisions based on real-time data.

With Astralution’s extensive background in aviation and crisis management in oil
and gas, this partnership will bring long-term value to clients by providing tailored
Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) solutions. This effort will support the digitalization of
the oil and gas sector by adding sensors and another layer of data analysis in the
value chain, allowing up to USD 20 billion cost-savings from equipment failure and
repair

The data capture and digital transformation initiatives to be conducted in Norway’s renewable energy industry is also in line with European Commission’s climate aim of 55% greenhouse gas emissions reduction by 2030.

Founder and Group CEO of Aerodyne, Kamarul A Muhamed said, “The total renewable capacity in Denmark and Norway in 2020 was 9,677 megawatts and 37.2 terawatts2 respectively, making it a huge market to tap into in terms of renewable energy asset management. This is especially since the EU is looking to install 30 gigawatts worth of wind farms every year from 2021 to 2030

“There is also a huge opportunity to break data silos in the oil and gas sector, and
with room to improve in how data can be standardized, integrated and analysed.
Our AI-powered asset management solution – Vertikaliti – will not only provide up to
90% time savings with smart oil and gas monitoring systems, 35% operation cost savings for wind turbine analysis but also up to 97% increased productivity for solar
panel inspections.”

Founder and CEO of Astralution, Nina Bokn Solheim, added that “We are very pleased to represent Aerodyne in Scandinavia. For Astralution, this improves our competitive edge and opens up a number of new opportunities in a large growing market. With Aerodyne’s capability and capacity included, Astralution is able to present state of the art SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) and DaaS (Drone-as-a-Service) solutions to the Scandinavian marketplace.”
