These two companies are among several that are eyeing AeroLift to support offshore deliveries and to provide other unmanned aerial services. Valmie debuted AeroLift eXpress last month at the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) in Houston.
“The AeroLift exhibit was not only an attention grabber at OTC but also generated serious interest in the exclusive service we offer,” said James Stafford, AeroLift eXpress CEO and Founder. “Our collaboration with Valmie is launching us in the right direction as we introduce our next level drone transport platform to the offshore community.”
Stafford said he would meet with the two offshore operations companies to discuss AeroLift’s elite military grade drone delivery platform and systems. One offshore operator specializes in the design, structural analysis and integrity management of riser and conductor systems used in the drilling and production of offshore oil and gas. The other provides marine survey services and engineering solutions in North and South America.
“The offshore operators to whom AeroLift will be presenting are known for using industry leading approaches,” said Gerald B. Hammack, President and CEO of Valmie Resources. “In comparison to other unmanned services that are limited to an operating radius of less than a mile, AeroLift offers a huge advancement in operating range and payload size. This should be of great interest to companies seeking innovative solutions during a time of low-dollar oil.”
AeroLift, operated by former US military pilots, delivers payloads up to 14 pounds within an operating radius of 250 miles.
