Schiebel Awarded New Service Provision Contract with EMSA

Schiebel has won another significant contract with the European Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA). Schiebel, with its CAMCOPTER® S-100, is yet again one of the service providers for EMSA’s Remotely Piloted Aircraft System (RPAS) operations carrying out ship emission monitoring and general maritime surveillance for EU member states.

The scope of this EUR 16.5 million framework contract includes monitoring the sulphur content of ships’ emissions to ensure compliance with the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) sulphur emission limits from sea going vessels, as well as maritime situational awareness for coastal authorities.

This contract comes in addition to the one awarded in 2018 under which Schiebel provided EMSA and local authorities in Croatia and Finland with maritime surveillance services and which is still ongoing.

The CAMCOPTER® S-100 operates day and night and can carry multiple payloads with a combined weight of up to 50 kg. Due to its minimal footprint and size, it is ideally suited for maritime operations.

Hans Georg Schiebel, Chairman of the Schiebel Group, said: “After successfully operating in the skies of Europe as part of our first contract with EMSA, we’re very proud to have been chosen once again for providing RPAS services. It proves that our extensive experience, reliability and maturity – we have over 100,000 flight hours under our belt – remains unrivalled.”
