UK’s leading and best-connected port owner and operator Associated British Ports announced it has successfully embedded drone technology into its asset management practices and policies, following an 18 month program. It utilised PwC’s specialist drone digital transformation team to support drone adoption and transformation in asset management, while Aerodyne Group, a DT3, Drone Tech, Data Tech and Digital Transformation, solutions provider, was selected as ABP’s drone service provider, bringing its extensive experience and world-class technology to bear.

ABP’s 21 ports and rail freight terminals around Britain offer unparalleled marine, road and rail access to domestic and international markets, and include 87km of quay and 1.4 million square meters of covered storage.

Development in the past 6 months has been focused on extensive site testing with Aerodyne across 8 locations in the UK. Analysis and data collection from the flights has demonstrated considerable cost saving and benefits; operations were safer, 25% more cost effective; and took 55% less time compared to traditional methods for selected assets.

In parallel, ABP worked with Aerodyne and PwC to build a cutting-edge drone visual asset management system which enables its teams to view asset condition dashboards, asset management information and build inspection reports, with only a browser required to access.

Aerodyne Group is a DT3 solutions provider of drone-based enterprise solutions, and a pioneer in the use of AI as an enabling technology for large-scale data operations, analytics and process optimization. Aerodyne’s team of over 400 drone professionals operates on an unprecedented level in the UAS services sector, having managed more than 300,000 infrastructure assets with 110,000 flight operations and surveyed in excess of 100,000 km of power infrastructure across 25 countries globally.
