Development of various applications such as delivery using hydrogen drones, marine monitoring, and lifesaving
Doosan Mobility Innovation (DMI) announced on the 21st that it will participate in the Maritime Emerging Technologies Innovation Park (METIP) through a partnership with the Dutch government agency NHN (Development Agency Noord-Holland Noord, NHN).
NHN is a regional development organization under the government that supports various activities for economic development, such as business development, investment, and acquisitions in the northern part of Amsterdam, the Netherlands. METIP is a four-year (2021-2024) maritime technology innovation support project hosted by NHN and participated by governments, companies, and research institutes, and its main themes are Human Resource Development, Hydrogen Economy Energy Conversion. DMI participates in the first of these, a solution development project using drones.
DMI is a hydrogen drone that can fly for more than 2 hours
It delivers emergency supplies and other supplies to a maritime hub 40-60 km away from the headquarters of an energy company on land, or from a maritime hub to an energy facility such as a gas drilling facility or wind turbine It delivers the product and performs duties such as lifesaving, facility inspection, and safety monitoring always.
This project is progressed in three stages: use of existing technology (drone delivery) application of technology (life savings, environmental monitoring) technology development (facility inspection, reconnaissance), and DMI uses the advantages of hydrogen drones to apply and check various applications.
DMI CEO Doo-soon Lee said, “This project in the North Sea is based on the actual demand of energy companies, so if this project is successfully completed, we expect that it will be of great help in promoting the product.” We will develop a business model and use it as a foothold to enter the European market.”
DMI succeeded in delivering emergency relief supplies between islands and islands at a distance of 70 km organized by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in 2019, and developed various applications such as public mask delivery, lifesaving, and gas pipe monitoring in Jeju Island, a drone demonstration city last year.
