RanMarine Technology

RanMarine Technology is a drone-technology company building and selling aquadrones to help customers clean and monitor their waters.

RanMarine builds aqua-drones that clear the water of waste, plastics and other non-biodegradables, as well as oils and other chemical contaminants. lightweight, agile, autonomous - their drones are specifically designed for inland and near-coastal water e.g. ports, marinas, canals, lagoons, lakes, rivers in order to catch marine litter before it is carried away into the open ocean by tide, current and wind. RanMarine drones are also learning machines, continuously gathering data from the environment, transmitting intel to a centralised database on dry land, and communicating with each other in the water. In this way their drones act as an autonomous, responsive, self-organising net: technology at work, serving the sea.
