Wilhelmsen Ships Service and global aeronautics company Airbus this week launched a pilot project trialing the world’s first shore-to-ship drone delivery in real-time port conditions at the port of Singapore.
Lifting off from Singapore’s Marina South Pier, the maiden shore-to-ship delivery flight was made to the Swire Pacific Offshore’s ATHS vessel Pacific Centurion located 1.5km away at Eastern Working Anchorage.
The drone was carrying a 1.5 kg package of 3D printed consumables, which it delivered to the deck of the anchor handling tug without a hitch before returning to its base. The entire delivery, from take-off to landing back at base, took just ten minutes.
Though small drone delivery trials from tugboat to ship have been conducted before by a number of shipping companies and service providers, shore-to-ship delivery of this range and scope has never been explored, prior to this trial, Wilhelmsen says.
