Austin, Texas and Athens, Greece, July 26, 2022 – Percepto, pioneering autonomous inspection by industrial robotics, today announced it has signed a new partnership with value-added seller Hellenic Drones to distribute its drone-in-a-box technology in Greece and Cyprus.
With the partnership, the companies expect to boost the adoption of autonomous drones within the countries’ Oil & Gas and solar farm industries. Percepto and Hellenic Drones demonstrated drones with optical gas imaging (OGI) in a refinery at the vicinity of Athens two weeks ago, one of the first such demos performed within the Oil & Gas industry. OGI technology helps facilities more effectively detect gas leaks to increase health safety and minimize environmental impacts.
“We are very excited to partner with Hellenic Drones to help companies in Greece and Cyprus harness the power of autonomous drone technology,” said Percepto Co-founder and CEO Dor Abuhasira. “With this partnership, we look forward to playing a significant role in making industry within the two countries greener, safer and more efficient.”
“Percepto’s end-to-end system will offer new possibilities for the Oil & Gas and solar farm industries to be in compliance with regulations and ensure consistent operations without interruption,” said Hellenic Drones Co-founder and CEO Dimitrios Skliros. “By working in partnership with Percepto, Hellenic Drone customers will move into the next generation of Industry 4.0 drone ecosystems to gain increased levels of productivity and security.”
