TEKEVER has been chosen by AERIAL ROBOTIX, Nigeria’s leading UAS operator, for environmental monitoring of oil and gas infrastructure in Nigeria.
Based out of its client’s facility, TEKEVER’s AR3 drone carries out six-hour flight missions six days a week at distances of up to 85km from the Ground Control Station (GCS) and provides live feedback imagery through TEKEVER’s ATLAS software direct to the client over an area of more than 30,000km2.
Since the service began in late 2022, the AR3 has flown more than 500 hours, covering over 41,000km and detected more than 400 points of interest.
The partnership between TEKEVER and AERIAL ROBOTIX is impacting the local economy in a positive manner, with local operators successfully undergoing training. The training program will continue to support the local community while generating new jobs and career opportunities in the high-tech industry.
Ricardo Mendes, CEO of TEKEVER, said: “It is an exciting time for TEKEVER, as we grow our customer base in the energy sector, and expand our presence in Africa. Our cutting-edge technology provides our clients with real time intelligence over their critical infrastructure and its surroundings. This has already proved to be extremely valuable in identifying potential threats to operations.”
Kolapo Sodeinde of Aerial Robotix added: “Together with TEKEVER, we can access hard-to-reach and dangerous areas to conduct inspections on behalf of our client. This technology is more reliable and advanced than conventional manned inspection teams.”
