Aerodyne has managed over 560,000 infrastructure assets since 2014, with 458,058 flight operations and more than 380,000 km of power infrastructure in 35 countries worldwide. The company has also provided cloud-based oil and gas infrastructure, powerline, offshore and onshore wind turbines, and solar panel inspection and management solutions that enable customers to make strategic decisions based on real-time data.
“Total renewable capacity in Denmark and Norway in 2020 was 9,677 megawatts and 37.2 terawatts respectively, making it a huge market to unlock in terms of renewable energy asset management. This is especially true as the EU intends to install 30 gigawatts worth of wind farms every year from 2021 to 2030,” said Kamarul A Muhamed, Founder and Group CEO of Aerodyne. “There is also a huge opportunity to break down data silos in the oil and gas sector, and there is room for improvement in the standardization, integration and analysis of data. Our AI-powered asset management solution – Verticaliti – will not only deliver up to 90% time savings on intelligent oil and gas monitoring systems, 35% operational cost savings on wind turbine analysis, but also up to 97% increased productivity on solar panel inspections Offer. ”
