Xplorate Pacific and Applus+ in Australia agree to a strategic alliance in BVLOS operations


    Xplorate Pacific and Applus+ in Australia will collaborate in the sphere of Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) Unmanned Aerial Intelligence operations. This partnership will bring a holistic solution for the Energy, Infrastructure & Resource industries for inspections benefiting from BVLOS operations including post-processing and reporting of many requirements.

    “This partnership is going to bring exceptional value to the Energy, Infrastructure and Resource sectors at a time of escalating costs and increased logistical pressures,” says Ronnie Fahy, Chief Executive Officer at Xplorate Pacific. “The Unmanned industry offers immense benefits to a vast number of industries. However, it is currently fragmented and very few offer a complete solution from aircraft manufacturing partnerships, world-class safety focused BVLOS operations, and intelligence gathering through to reporting and analytics. This partnership with Applus+ will change that. To partner with such a highly renowned global organisation as Applus+ is an exceptional development for Xplorate. We look forward to bringing the costs of operating down, increasing productivity, and increasing safety for our customers and in turn their customers at a time when all other costs are increasing.”

    Applus+ is excited to partner with Xplorate which is leading the market in transforming aerial intelligence through BVLOS operations whilst enforcing a safer, more environmentally focused service delivery than traditional means,” says Adam Alessandrino, Regional Manager – Oceania, at Applus+ in Australia, “we look forward to expanding our partnership throughout the region and globally in the pursuit of safer, lower cost and lower emission operations, whilst delivering world-class data analytics and reporting for our customers," he added.
