Port Digitalization

Has your port started the inevitable digitalization process?

How does it work?

Technology For Port Digitalization

The rising need for smart and effective workflows demands innovative technology to assist the administration of modern, industrial ports.

Lorenz Technology offers an intelligent drone solution to perform smart, autonomous inspections and assist in area management.

With our platform, you can access updated visual data in real-time on maps, inspections and detections. Our platform allows you to work with your data intelligently – improving workflows and facility management.


Features for the Port Industry

Technology for compliance

Technology for compliance

Perform fence inspections and collect needed documentation to comply with EU safety regulations by detecting locations of repairs in the digital workflow.



Monitor a variety of daily tasks such as the flow of sand and mud pumping away from the waterfronts.

Lighthouse bouy inspection

Lighthouse bouy inspection

Fly up to 650 meters from the coast and inspect critical infrastructure, detecting the condition of lighthouses or buoys.

Updated maps

Quay Inspections

Check the conditions of your port quays, detect necessary repairs, and perform detailed inspections that is digitally documented.

Inspect fenders and safety ladders with drones to improve security and manage the repairs of your quays.


Trailer detection

At Lorenz Technology, we are constantly looking for innovative partnerships. Together with DFDS, we are working on a project to detect trailers and integrate real-time data flow to terminal management systems, to help reduce operational costs and digitalize the manual workflow.

Port digitalization made easy

The intelligent solution for ports

Operations on ports are often connected with complex challenges of coordination and monitoring. Collecting data manually on the state and condition of facilities is time-consuming and requires a steady flow of communication between departments.

However, innovative technology can help optimize and improve operations and safety conditions. By minimizing the challenges of monitoring and coordinating daily processes, we can improve the workflow with better data and updated maps, leading to a higher quality of performed work processes.

The Lorenz Hive®

A cloud platform perfect for ports

Through our intelligent drones solution, you can create an efficient and data-driven digital environment that replaces former manual operations on your port. ​

Plan autonomous drone and mobile robot routes, watch and share a real-time video stream, while your data archives within our solution. We provide the option of creating digital inspections on ports which includes better, simpler, quicker, and well-documented data for reporting and further business development. Besides inspecting and surveying, our intelligent drone solution allows mapping of the infrastructure on the port and its quays to optimize daily operations such as area and facility management.

Product features

Benefit from new technology

Our updated 2D maps make area and facility management digital through measuring and patrolling for documented overview and dynamic invoicing. Additionally, our updated 3D maps allow volume calculations of equipment, storage, and materials on the quays such as sand, gravel piles, etc. The digital and intelligent solution also improves security and surveillance by being able to respond rapidly in case of any safety, environmental or ecological emergencies occurring on the port.

Consequently, all valuable data from the digital drone operations is collected and stored within our cloud platform the Lorenz Hive®. By everything being documented and stored, you will have an archive for documentation whenever needed. Implementing our intelligent drone solution improves quality and efficiency through a digital overview of your entire port.

Drones are excellent tools to help maintain large areas, which can otherwise be hard to reach. Enterprise drones nowadays are, to a certain extent, able to fly in tough weather conditions such rain and wind. 

Since ports contain many areas which are hard to reach, drones can be utilized to perform inspections and develop a data archive, which supports the digitalization of ports. The data can then be used to optimize workflows and meet the requirements set by the law.

Yes, through our solution, drones are able to fly beyond radio line of sight (BRLOS), including areas above the water. BRLOS means that the drones can fly beyond the radio connection to the remote control. Through our platform, it can utilize the LTE network to maintain communication between the Lorenz AI-Link® and the Lorenz Hive® and therefore the drone is able to fly a further distance for instance above the sea.

Yes, the enterprise drones we work with (DJI M300) are able to fly in rain to a certain extent. The drone has an IP45 rating and the Lorenz AI-Link® meets up to that requirement as well.

For more information on the capabilities of flying the DJI M300 in different weather conditions, we refer to the official spec sheet: https://www.dji.com/dk/matrice-300/specs

Yes, the enterprise drones we work with (DJI M300) are able to fly in wind up to 15 m/s.

Using drones for inspection purposes reduces the need for driving around the port with a vehicle to conduct the same task. Through our solution, the drone operator can remain in their position while following the livestream from the drone on a desired device. Through identifying points of interest, the staff member can spend their time more efficiently and does not have to spend time driving around the port. This reduces fuel consumption drastically.

Besides, there are other ways imaginable on how drones contribute to a greener port e.g. by the possibility to quickly identify oil leaks, monitor potential waste dumping and mapping areas for monitoring.
