Carrying out inspections and surveillance activities at sea is often extremely difficult due to lack of visibility and accessibility.
Upteko provides an automated multipurpose drone system, Lärke, applicable for the shipping industry, cruise ships, offshore oil rigs, or wind turbines. The drone solution can support a wide variety of activities, including complex docking, oil spill detection, fire hazard inspection, search and rescue, perimeter patrol, package delivery and dry docking inspection.
Lärke is integrated onboard with a charging station and operated by Upteko’s AI-powered software, which allows for on-demand assistance of the crew, even in complex marine environments.
KEY CUSTOMERS AND INTERNATIONAL PRESENCE
Key customers of Upteko’s solution include companies within the maritime industries, who own, operate and rely on large vessels, including DFDS, Vestas, and Siemens.
Upteko was founded in 2018 by Mads Joergensen, Benjamin Mejnertz, and Sebastian Duus to pursue the opportunity of developing drone applications for the maritime sector. For Benjamin and Sebastian, it started as a hobby, competing in RC Helicopter competitions around the world and later became a business worth pursuing. Mads came onboard, and together they created Upteko and built a great team of experienced drone pilots, software- and hardware engineers, and business developers.
