Falcon Eye Drones launches sustainability practice in the Middle East

falcon eyeFalcon Eye Drones,Dubai-based drone-powered solutions company, has introduced a sustainability practice, aiming to address the growing importance of sustainable business and industry practices across construction, oil and gas, agriculture, mapping, surveying, utilities, energy and other sectors

Within the framework of the new practice, Falcon Eye Drones will be sustainability proofing their upcoming developments by evaluating the amount of carbon footprint that will be avoided by utilising unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) to service a project.

In addition, the company will be increasing its participation and contribution towards regional discussions at industry events and trade shows and further contributing towards the education of relevant industry professionals and experts via co-hosted and independently organised events and training activities.

Drones for sustainability vertical has been inspired by the increasing role UAVs play across many industries that lean towards clean energy practices. New practice was also boosted by the regional market sentiment on renewable energy and sustainability.

In the renewable energy sector

The Middle East and North Africa’s (MENA) renewable energy market is currently dominated by the UAE and Saudi Arabia, where power requirements are expected to grow by 6.4 per cent each year until 2022. According to the World Future Energy Summit statement, the Middle East is expected to more than triple its share of renewable energy from 5.6 per cent in 2016 to 20.6 per cent in 2035, with solar making up the lion’s share of this figure. To successfully achieve this target, about US$30-40bn of capital will need to be invested in future projects across the region.

Introduction of UAVs to develop solar energy plants in the Middle East is one of the breakthroughs that demonstrate the importance of drone technologies within this sector.

To increase the time efficiency during any the solar plant construction project, fully automated ground screw installation solution can make a tremendous impact. A fully integrated software, cloud and hardware solutions can save the solar installation time by 10-30 per cent. Such solutions use computer-aided design to plan the location and the depth of the screw, and then use the fully automated real-time kinematic (RTK) guided machinery to install the ground screw.

Falcon Eye Drones participates in the major industry events such as Big 5 Solar, where the company discusses the importance of UAVs for sustainability and renewable energy. The company co-organises the Drones synergies summit that takes place in Dubai on the annual basis and is designed to educate and guide regional stakeholders on the importance of drone technology across multiple sectors.

In this year’s edition, drones synergies will feature more than 16 one-day training programmes focusing on various aspects and synergies of drones.

Agriculture for tomorrow and drones, drones for renewable energy assessment and management and drones for natural resources and environmental sustainability are among the scheduled training and part of the professional programme of the conference.
