VIDEO: Airobotics, Shapir-Ashtrom Partner at Haifa Port

Airobotics, the Israeli startup that built the world’s first fully automated drone, announced today its partnership with Shapir-Ashtrom to survey the construction of Haifa’s new seaport – Gulf Port.

With this collaboration, Airobotics is implementing the first technology of its kind for industrial spaces, and is working closely with Israel’s construction and civil engineering companies Shapir Civil and Marine Engineering Ltd. and Ashtrom Properties Ltd., which created a joint venture Shapir-Ashtrom.

Shapir-Ashtrom, along with The Israel Ports Company, are building the Gulf Port, including the construction of breakwaters and piers, as well as dredging and land reclamation.

The port will be 810 acres and be able to contain 1.1 million containers per year.

Airobotics has applied its drone missions to assist in surveying reclamation areas, monitoring breakwater construction and stockpile measurements, which increases construction accuracy and accessibility, while reducing production costs, and adhering to project timelines.

The company’s automated drones have been used for the past eight months for surveying the construction progress, and surveying the area daily.

The seaport project introduces smart planning, characterized by safely documenting and evaluating project development, providing engineers, and contractors with an accurate depiction of project development, and timeline expectations.
