F-drones is glad to have Viswa Group amongst one of its first paying customers. Viswa Group is one of the world leading fuel testing companies, receiving a high volume of bunker samples daily in Singapore.
On 1 May 2020, we collected a 1-litre bunker sample from one of Viswa Group’s customer vessels, which was anchored 2.9km from our drone’s take-off location. The beyond-visual-line-of-sight (BVLOS) flights only took 15 mins in total, including the time which the vessel crew took to load the payload.
We envision a future where there’s no need for anyone to board vessels to retrieve liquid samples anymore!
