Schiebel broadens engagement with EMSA
Schiebel has received another contract from the European Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA), the company announced on 1 April.
Under the €16.5 million ($19.4 million) framework agreement, the Schiebel Camcopter S-100 will be used for emissions monitoring and maritime surveillance.
Schiebel already provides EMSA and local authorities in Croatia and Finland with maritime surveillance services. The Croatian contract was awarded in November 2018 and renewed 12 months later, while EMSA selected the S-100 for the Finnish Border and Coast Guard in 2020.
Camcopter S-100 operates day and night and can carry multiple payloads with a combined weight of up to 50kg.
‘Due to its minimal footprint and size, it is ideally suited for maritime operations,’ Schiebel claimed.
