Optimizing the digital port while minimizing costs, improving safety and reducing emissions
In the current situation, some ports are currently revising their security setup. Many ports are currently asked to increase their ISPS level from 1 to 2. Since perimeter security is a paramount task at level 2 to respect ISPS plans, ports are investing extra hardware such as security gates, cameras, and sensors – as well as extra manpower. When HW is in place, 85% of all registered alerts are categorized as false, generating unexpected operation cost.
To secure permanent security rounds, Lorenz Robot Guard® is the perfect match to increase security level in a flexible way. The Lorenz Robot Guard® replaces a security guard team. Its cameras and sensors digitalize the round with the possibility to log and review data and send them to the authorities as documentation.
To reduce false alerts substantially, the Lorenz Drone Guard® can swiftly verify any registered alert prior to sending a patrol to the area.
optimize your workflow
Ports need to inspect the port’s own facilities such as office buildings, quay areas and buoyage.
Inspection is necessary to ensure safety at the quay areas for docking ships and preventing incidents in areas of high risks. Workflows related to inspection are manual with high operation costs. E.g., navigating a boat with a crew to inspect the quay from the seaside in cooperation with a crew onshore is expensive and becomes safety on its own.
A quote from the port of Esbjerg illustrates the benefits beautifully:
“Before we had the drone technology, inspecting quays was done physically in a car or boat, obviously making it more difficult, time consuming, and more expensive. Now, with drone flights we are doing a 2-day job in 20 minutes.” – Jesper Bank, CCO, Port Esbjerg
OPTIMIZE YOUR WORKFLOW
Ports belong to the transport sector, responsible for 5% of Co2 gas emissions globally. Consequently, focus on reducing the impact on the environment within a port’s activities has become a competitive parameter.
Whether the staff inspect the port’s own facilities, screen the rented space, or respect the current ISPS plan in securing the port’s perimeter, tasks are performed manually.
Thus, emissions cars or ships performing inspection tasks are high. Ships used for quay inspection or sea marks inspection represent a substantial Co2 footprint. By using the Lorenz drone guard® ports are able to reduce their Co2 emissions with more than 90% when replacing manual tasks with the Lorenz Drone Guard® and the Lorenz Robot Guard®.
The Lorenz Hive®
The Lorenz Hive® is a service software for efficient route planning with a real-time video stream of your autonomous flights. The web interface connects with the Lorenz AI-Link® and gives you possibilities for intelligent recognition of incidents in the real-time video stream while archiving your data in our cloud platform.
The Lorenz cloud platform has a user-friendly interface which lets you operate at multiple locations and manage several drone applications simultaneously by the mount of a Lorenz AI-Link® on your UAVs and UGVs.

The ISPS level refers to the International Ship and Port Facility Security Code, which is a set of security measures for ships and ports established by the International Maritime Organization. Many ports are being asked to increase their ISPS level from 1 to 2 in order to meet higher security standards.
Ports need to invest in extra hardware such as security gates, cameras, and sensors, as well as extra manpower to meet the perimeter security requirements of ISPS level 2.
When the necessary hardware is in place, 85% of all registered alerts are categorized as false, generating unexpected operational costs.
The Lorenz Robot Guard® can increase security level at ports in a flexible way by replacing a security guard team. Its cameras and sensors digitalize the round with the possibility to log and review data and send them to the authorities as documentation. The Lorenz Robot Guard® plays a role in permanent security rounds by offering a reliable and cost-effective alternative to traditional security guard teams.
The Lorenz Drone Guard® can help to reduce false alerts at ports by swiftly verifying any registered alert prior to sending a patrol to the area. This helps to optimize the digital port while minimizing costs, improving safety, and reducing emissions by reducing unnecessary patrols and the associated fuel consumption.
