Drone Used For World's First Logistics Operation to Equinor Platform

The Schieble Camcopter S-100 model drone flew a 3D-printed part for the lifeboat system from the Mongstad base to Equinor's Troll A platform in the North Sea. The operation was completed efficiently and according to plan.

This type of drone has been thoroughly tested and has logged around 70,000 flying hours from other types of operations within the defence and coast guard services. The drone is more than 4 m long and weighs in excess of 100 kg. It has a cruising speed of more than 150 km/h and it can carry cargo weighing up to 50 kg.

Equinor said drones could reinforce safety, boost production efficiency and contribute to lower CO2 emissions from Norwegian oil and gas
