The drone helped deliver a critical part for Wilhelmsen to Berge Sarstein, anchored 5km from shore within 7 minutes.
The payload was another significant milestone in itself, being the world’s first 3D Printed CE-Certified Lifting Tool from Wartsila
Since providing the first commercial BVLOS drone deliveries in April 2020, the drones expanded their delivery area at the anchorages, and can operate 24 hours a day.
The drone system can carry 5kg over a distance of 50km. However, F-drones’ aspire to develop a larger scale drone capable of delivering 100kg to vessels up to 100km away.
