From before the company has already developed robots that climb on the steel, and which sinks to 2000 bar pressure.Now they started with a drone to be used for washing of facades and roofs, the tall buildings and high-rises.
This is an exciting project with many challenges, but we have never been afraid to be early says CEO KTV Group, Kennet Nilsen.The company currently delivers services on maintenance of real estate, industrial and offshore. It was after oil slump company saw opportunities and shifted development focus of the property.
We see that the development of drones caught a tremendous pace, and even now, the equipment and technology that is already on the market, enabling this idea.
The result will be cheaper prices for customers, and to solve tasks without the use of scaffolding, platforms or façade climbers. Thus, the solution is also very HSE friendly says Nilsen.
The goal is to have a prototype of the drone ready during 2016.
