Drone Companies Team up to Service North Dakota Oil Patch
A Norway-based manufacturer and a Scandinavian technology company have been teaming up with a North Dakota drone operation to service the region’s utility and oil and gas customers.
The Minot Daily News reports that Robot Aviation, a manufacturing company based in Poland, and eSmart, a software company founded in Norway, are partnering with SkySkopes. The drone-piloting company is based in Grand Forks but recently opened an office in Minot.
The three businesses are aiming to provide customers with the hardware, software and operators to deliver unmanned aerial technology.
ESmart joined forces with SkySkopes after Hurricane Irma in Florida to do damage assessments in the Jacksonville area for JEA, the eighth largest municipal electric company in the country.
