Azur Drones, one of the world leaders in drone-in-a- box solutions for surveillance and inspection, has recently obtained validation of its Skeyetech system by the giant TotalEnergies, confirming its added value for the energy sector.

An industry-proven technology

As a precursor of the Smart Industry, TotalEnergies has been interested for several years in the innovative “drone-in-a-box” technology, without a remote pilot, operating 24/7 to perform surveillance, industrial inspection and crisis management missions.

After deploying a first Skeyetech system on the Feyzin site in 2020, Azur Drones has signed a framework agreement with TotalEnergies to make Skeyetech systems available to all its sites, reflecting the renewed trust from the French group.

Autonomous drones to reinforce safety, industrial security and environmental protection

Deployed at Feyzin, Azur Drones' Skeyetech systems carry out daily visualization, sensor measurement and critical infrastructure inspection missions. Drone inspections offer a significant reduction in inspection costs, production downtime and response times, while making operations safer for employees.

"We are proud that Azur Drones has been validated and adopted by a global leader in the energy sector, demonstrating its maturity," said Jean-Marc Crépin, CEO of Azur Drones. "Thanks to a long and close collaboration with TotalEnergies, Skeyetech brings unparalleled services to the oil, gas and chemical industry. Our technology is now proven in France, Europe and the Middle East, and ready to meet the industry's needs for safety, operations support and environmental protection."
