It’s all up in the air on the Tees

[ August 24, 2021   //   ]

PD Ports, owner and operator of Teesport and Statutory Harbour Authority for the River Tees, has signed apartnership with commercial drone company heliguy.

It includes the procurement of five machines that will be used to optimise operations and reduce risks, as well training 17 people in the port group to fly them. Eight Harbour Police constables have already passed their training and the rest of the team due to commence their training later this month.

The drones will be used for activities such as emergency response, surveillance, surveying and asset and infrastructure management.
