Why use it?
Small in size, big in flexibility. The AquaDrone helps to:
- Observe places more often in a cost-effective way;
- Look at assets from different (and difficult) angles;
- Explore places that are difficult or impossible to reach by conventional vessels or divers.
The AquaDrone can complement or even replace visual inspections on location. As the AquaDrone sends real-time video information to the user, the person carrying out the inspection can see exactly what the drone sees and look around freely — but from a safe and comfortable position! This saves time, reduces costs and improves safety.
By using our AquaDrone instead of traditional inspection solutions we have succeeded in shortening the maintenance time and at the same time provided Vopak with a better insight of the status of their jetty than they had ever before.

AquaSmartXL will focus on engineering the AquaDrone, communication protocols and the License to Operate from port authorities. RoNik will provide the data capturing, data analysis and displaying of data. Together we will deliver insight to the customer about their status of their assets. Not only will we be able to deliver a standard inspection rapport, we also offer a full 3D digital model based on visual information of their asset. Customers can use it to verify the inspection conclusions. Next to that they will also have a reference point for all future endeavors. Providing more complete information, that lead to better decisions generating better results.
The technological development is in its final stage, soon we will announce our first project.
During the World Port Days we will provide an unprecedented experience of the Port of Rotterdam. Our live 3D demo with a challenging puzzle for participants will be an experience as never seen before and let people experience the port from a unique angle. Tickets will be available for our sponsors.
