Developer of KTV Working Drone

KTV Group first started to use drones commercially in Norway for a new and more innovative way to provide a service for cleaning of windows and facades at heights.

In early 2022  KTV Working Drone was founded where it was launched first in Norway and later internationally. With unprecedented interest from around the globe  KTV Working Drone has quickly been able to establish a footprint in over 40 countries already with more joining every month.

Development of the KTV Working Drone originated way back in 2015, where many changes were needed to make the drone commercial. KTV Working Drone R&D department has developed and continues to evolve a unique drone with tailor-made and uniquely adapted mounting equipment for us with specially designed cleaning equipment.

The drone has been extensively tested and commercialised for use with window and facade cleaning and has been used operationally since 2020 by KTV Group in Norway.
