Congratulations Echodrone! During the World Expo in Dubai, the latest upgrade of the Echodrone, an autonomous sounding vessel, won the Blue Innovation Award from Blue Cluster.

The Echodrone is an autonomous sounding vessel capable of performing a variety of depth measurements to guarantee safe passage for shipping. It recently underwent a major upgrade that included the installation of innovative technology.

The Echodrone 2.0 is not only more robust, but it is also able to withstand different weather conditions and carries a variety of measuring equipment on board, including a sonar radar. For Port of Antwerp, the launch of the Echodrone 2.0 forms yet another milestone in terms of accessibility and innovation. Receiving the Blue Innovation Award was therefore the cherry on the cake.
