China’s leading industrial drone company, MMC, is changing the way that utility companies around the world think about power line stringing.

MMC is dominating the market in power line stringing by drone in Asia, and rapidly spreading around the globe.  Power line stringing by drone offers tremendous advantages to developing countries without a robust road infrastructure system.  Performing the stringing by drone is not only safer for utility workers, but protects the environment and provides easier access to difficult terrain.

The process is simple – but the results are stunning.  MMC’s team of experienced operators equips their industrial drone with a guiding line and travels from tower A to tower B – even if tower B is over the ocean.  A process normally requiring a boat and large teams of utility workers can be completed in minutes.  Thailand’s EGAT (The Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand) is the state enterprise responsible for power generation and transmission across the entire country – and after seeing this demonstration in Phuket, they’ve signed the MMC team to complete a major project in Northern Thailand early next year. Please watch the project’s site video:

MMC is already the primary partner for Indonesia’s PLN (Perusahaan Listrik Negara) a government-owned corporation with a monopoly on electricity distribution in Indonesia.  They’ve worked with MMC to  finish most of their power line stringing projects over the last two years.  It’s been a recipe for success for PLN, tasked with bringing power to remote islands and rugged terrain that can be almost impossible to reach without drone technology.

The company is now working with agencies in India to bring their Spider drone solution to the northern area of the country.  When agencies have the opportunity to witness a practical demonstration of the Spider at work, they quickly realize the transformation that drone technology can bring to the process.

MMC is already at work on the next generation of Spider drones, to be released at the end of the second quarter in 2018.

Leading commercial drone manufacturer MMC is a recognized innovator in drone tech – and now they’re changing the way the drone industry does business.  MMC are partnering with helicopter service centers and other providers across the globe as they expand their game-changing One Stop Drone Rental centers.

Now in Asia, India, and Germany MMC plans to expand their network of Rental centers – a new way of bringing drone technology to the enterprise.  “MMC’s One-Stop UAV Rental Solution offers a lower-risk, lower-cost and high return business model for companies adopting drone technology for the first time,” says Mr. Ling, MMC’s VP and Managing Director of Overseas Operations. “We’re now expanding this program across the globe, opening centers in the United States, Australia, Canada, Europe, South America, and South Africa.”

The One Stop Solution eliminates many of the barriers to entry that businesses experience with drone technology.  With their local partners, MMC’s One Stop Rental Centers deliver a world-renowned commercial drone and handle the piloting, payload selection, maintenance and repair – all of the tasks of fleet maintenance – while the customer gets the benefits of the drone program.

MMC works with local to deliver the appropriate tools, training and facilities for an unmanned solution in the local market.  Manufacturing, updates, maintenance and repair take place at MMC’s state of the art facility in Shenzhen.  Their latest partner is helicopter service provider Heliseven in Germany.  “Helicopter service providers are a perfect match for the program,” says Mr. Ling. “The services are complementary, the customers and facilities are already there – and offering a complete UAV and helicopter solution helps everyone do business.”

Heliseven CEO Thomas Drager agreed. “We were looking for a drone manufacturer to provide us with industrial drones,” said Thomas “More and more projects can be completed with a multirotor drones for a lower cost.  We want to provide our customers with the service that they need – either helicopter or multirotor UAV.”

“UAVs are an inevitable trend,” says Thomas “We firmly believe that this combination of services will allow us to maintain – and grow – our position in the market.”

For customers, the system offers an easy way to implement drone programs without a large upfront investment in staffing and equipment.  “A rental solution just makes sense,” says Mr. Ling. “Many companies want the benefits of a drone program but aren’t in a position to hire pilots and maintain a fleet – even before they’ve seen what drones can do.”  Customers can now work with specially trained local experts to determine the right aircraft and payload for their mission, perform demo flights, learn about flight planning, and find a trained pilot.  

As the drone industry expands, providers are developing innovative solutions in both technology and business.  MMC’s One Stop UAV Rental Centers could be the next major step forward for commercial drones – and for helicopter centers.

Leading commercial drone manufacturer MMC has introduced their One-Stop Rental Solution for industrial drones in India and Asia.  The company plans to expand the program across the globe, opening centers in the United States, Australia, Canada, Europe, South America, and South Africa.

MMC  is the industry leader in providing innovative commercial and industrial drone solutions to clients around the world.  With their new One Stop Solution program, the company has resolved many of the practical barriers to widespread adoption of drone technology – creating a new model for the commercial drone market.

The Cost Benefit to Renting

MMC leads the market in high return applications for drone technology, such as mapping, inspections, power-line stringing, and surveillance. But while the return on investment for industrial uses is high, customers may hesitate to make an initial investment in a commercial drone before seeing what they can do.  In addition, customers who may need drone technology for several different applications find that renting on an “as needed” basis makes more sense than investing in a fleet of multiple aircraft.

The decision isn’t only based on cost.  MMC’s Lu Ling, VP and Managing Director of the Overseas Market, says that MMC recognizes the need to take on more of the burden of drone operation for their customers: drone maintenance, educating the end user, and setting up data analysis solutions.

“Investment in a drone program involves much more than the price of the drone.  The client needs to hire engineers and pilots, and repair and customize drones,” says Ling.  In addition to fleet maintenance, MMC’s One Stop Drone Rental Solution helps clients to convince their stakeholders of the value of drone technology – and helps them to set up the right data analysis program to get the benefits.

Professional Pilots – For Rent

It takes time – and the right staff – to learn to fly a drone for industrial applications.  While some customers send their own pilots to MMC’s state of the art facility for training, others simply want the job done.  MMC’s team of professional pilots specializes in commercial applications, combining expert flight skills with industry knowledge.

For companies without an expert pilot already on board, the One Stop Solution means that they get immediate benefits from their drone program – without the time it takes for hiring, training and licensing additional staff.  MMC’s pilots have already gone through intensive training and have hundreds of hours of flight experience, allowing clients to focus on the results rather than the drone operation.

Chinese company MMC, an industry-leading commercial and industrial drone manufacturer and the innovators behind hydrogen fuel cell technology for drones, have introduced the 2nd generation of their H1 – fuel cell – increasing flight endurance to an impressive 4 hour flight time.

Overcoming LiPo Battery Limitations

The H-1 Fuel Cell is a drone agnostic solution, compatible with MMC’s own widely adopted industrial drones as well as other commercial drones from manufacturers including DJI. Hydrogen fuel offers tremendous advantages over LiPo batteries.  In addition to incredible flight endurance, hydrogen drones are able to fly in extreme conditions, stable in temperatures ranging from -10 degrees Celsius (14 degrees Farenheit) to 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees Farenheit.)  Hydrogen fuel cells are eco-friendly and pollution-free, and can refuel in under 40 minutes.

New Applications, New Opportunities

Most importantly, the longer flight times provided by the H-1 Fuel Cell open new opportunities for commercial applications.  As flight beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) becomes more common in countries around the world, the long range drone applications continue to expand.  The H-1 Fuel Cell has been flying off of the shelves to provide solutions for mapping, surveying, security and search and rescue.

In countries around the world, hydrogen drone technology is proving it’s worth: providing significant ROI for industries across the board.  For the power industry, long range surveys of power line routes for vegetation encroachment not only save time and money, but can also significantly reduce the risk of outages.  Transportation infrastructure like railways use long-range drones to monitor tracks for blockages or damage.  Security and law enforcement agencies use drones with long flight times for border patrol, crowd control and other applications: offering a less expensive and more effective alternative to the traditional “boots on the ground” approach.

Common industrial applications like agriculture and mapping also benefit from longer flight times.  Hydrogen fuel cells provide large scale farming operations with the ability to fly over large land masses from a central location, in order to determine which areas require work that day.  Drone mapping opportunities expand to larger bridges, highway and other infrastructure projects – saving construction and planning companies in survey costs and development time while providing new and better data.

Knocking Down Technology Barriers

With the first hydrogen-powered drone, their innovative plug-and-play system of interchangeable payloads, and their family of complete and customizable drone solutions for a broad range of industrial and military uses, MMC is rapidly removing technology barriers that limit the commercial drone industry.

MMC’s Leo Liu says that’s the company’s goal: “We’ve invested in R&D, working with our clients to introduce more and better solutions for them.  We’re very focused on removing technology barriers like battery endurance and on driving the industry forward.”  With MMC’s 2nd generation hydrogen fuel cell, they’ve done just that.

Chinese industrial drone manufacturer MMC has a view from the top of the drone industry. As it’s Shenzhen neighbor DJI has risen to market dominance in the recreational drone segment, MMC has achieved prominence in the commercial sector.  With over 500% growth in the last few years, the company has sound funding, a global client base and an enviable solution set.  The innovators behind the world’s first hydrogen-powered drone, they’ve been at the forefront of development in the industry.  And, as MMC expands into new verticals and new territories, they are at the center of the top three drone industry trends this year.

1: Expanding Applications.

Energy, agriculture, construction and law enforcement have been strong verticals for the drone industry for some time.  But as the technology solutions mature, the applications available in those verticals is expanding.  Solutions have shifted beyond just imagery and data collection to performing tasks like power-line stringing, crop spraying, and 24-hour surveillance.  

Previously, many commercial applications were performed by small quads with data gathering payloads – a prosumer drone like those manufactured by DJI or Yuneec.  But as applications expand, customers are looking for true industrial drones – those that are weather-resistant, offer long flight times, and can handle multiple payloads.  As a standout provider of industrial drones like their Spider Solution for energy work, MMC has seen their power-line stringing business expand by 200 % in the last two years.

“The ROI for these applications is so significant – they’re being adopted rapidly,” says MMC Director Ling Lu.  “The value is there.”

The MMC family of drones offers a plug-and-play payload system, with a toolkit of hundreds of possible payloads and the option of customization.  This kind of multi-purpose drone differs significantly from a smaller consumer or prosumer craft, as it can handle a wide variety of applications for a single investment.  

2: Military Technology is Moving Downstream – and vice versa

The military was one of the first adopters of drone technology, purchasing large and expensive aircraft from a few traditional military providers like Boeing and Northrup Grummon. But as drone technology matures, many elements of military drone technology are moving downstream and being incorporated into smaller industrial drones: resilience, endurance, and reliability are now expected in industrial drones.

And the shift is going in both directions.  As industrial manufacturers like MMC adopt the best elements of military technology, military forces are buying MMC drones and expanding their programs to include a whole new set of applications.  Smaller industrial drones are ideal for many military uses: including border patrol, surveillance, crowd management and security.  MMC’s ability to customize their drone – or offer multiple payloads through the plug-and-play system – make drones like the long-endurance hydrogen-powered drone HyDrone 1550 or the A6 Plus heavy payload drone ideal tools for military forces around the globe.  Easy to fly, well-supported and less expensive than aircraft produced by traditional military providers, MMC’s industrial drones are gaining major market share in the military sector.

3: Service is a Key Component

As the applications for commercial drones expand, services have become a key component in drone solutions. Providers need to overcome all of the barriers to entry for their customers. MMC has taken a dominant position in the commercial drone market because of their total solution approach: they offer training, flight planning, pilot services, and after sales service to help customers all over the world launch their drone programs.  It’s a major differentiator, and one that has helped spread drone technology to new areas – a drone without the services to back it up can’t provide value in emerging markets.

The option for customization is another major factor in the company’s success.  The commercial industry is shifting quickly – only manufacturers willing to recognize that their customers may come up with new applications and requirements are able to keep up.

As the industry continues to grow and change, MMC will continue to be nimble in adjusting to new technology and new markets.  “We’ve been able to achieve a lot by being the first to recognize new opportunities,” says Lu.  “It’s an exciting time and an exciting place to be, at the forefront of a new industry.”

It’s rainy reason along the lower-middle course of the Yangtze River in China.  While the poetically named “Plum Rains” lead to the lush crops of grain and tea that give the region part of it’s beauty, the area also includes some of the most populated cities in the world – technology powerhouses that contribute over 20% of China’s GDP.  Despite the expected average of nearly 8 inches of rain in one month, residents and businesses cannot afford to be without a communications network, despite extreme floods in many places.

Leading industrial drone manufacturer MMC has successfully tested their tethered drone systems to maintain normal telecommunications in Jiashan, in the Zhejiang Province, where the company has a branch office.

MMC’s tether system is a cost-effective and drone agnostic tethered power system.  The tether can keep a drone in the air for hundreds of hours continuously – offering 24/7 operation when used with some drones – and holds the drone in one location, at heights of up to and exceeding 400 feet.

The system has proven its resilience by bringing a communications network in the toughest of wet environments.  The tests are a crucial example of the life-saving power of drone technology – demonstrating the global potential for the system to provide telecommunication in emergency response situations.  With a reliable solution for re-establishing the network immediately after an environmental disaster, not only can business continue – but lives will be saved.

Small size and lower altitude drones equipped with a tether system offer huge advantages in establishing emergency telecommunication networks. Carrying a telecommunications payload, the drones operate as a miniature, low-cost communications satellite – essentially providing a continuously flying hotspot. Easy to transport and incredibly fast to launch, the equipment can be set up within minutes. Despite their small size, drones can provide a communications network over large areas.

In addition to the telecommunications network, MMC’s T1 system is used around the world for military, security and industrial applications including persistent aerial surveillance, traffic monitoring, industrial inspections, and mobile network relay stations.  With MMC’s patented “plug-and-play” payload options – providing hundreds of payload options for a single drone – and customization services, the system allows customers to expand use of the T1 power system to a wide range of potential uses.

The MMC T1 Tether System is available now, for use with a range of drones including the MMC TDrone 1200, DJI Matrice 600, DJI Matrice 600 Pro, DJI S1000 and so on.

When Chinese President Xi Jinping and 29 other heads of state agreed to an open economy and a policy of free and inclusive trade last month, the announcement rippled across industries.  But China’s “New Silk Road” – the multi-billion dollar initiative which will build new infrastructure and trade links across the globe – may boost the drone industry first.

China dominates drone manufacturing, both commercial and recreational.  Leading commercial manufacturer MMC has seen the country’s move towards an open trading system bring new relationships – and a steady stream of ambassador delegations from around the world.

MMC’s innovative hydrogen fuel cell drone, the HyDrone 1550 – a global first – solves a universal problem in flight endurance for commercial drones. MMC has been a leader in bringing drone technology to energy projects in remote areas, and in providing innovative solutions in the law enforcement and security markets.  They provide the leading drone power-line stringing solution (the Spider) available.  And they’ve built a business around tackling not only the engineering challenges that drones offer but the business challenges: training, support, and customization. Those solutions have garnered attention – and this spring, delegations from around the world including Armenia, Syria, Sudan, Sri Lanka, Maldives, Lithuania, the Philippines, Singapore, Russia, and Slovakia have visited MMC’s factory to learn more.

Delegations toured MMC’s factory and discussed developments in drone technology with MMC’s engineering team and top management.  “This meeting enhanced international exchange on innovative technology,” said MMC’s CEO Leo Liu, “and founded a good basis for international cooperation in the drone industry.”  President Xi’s recent announcement matches MMC’s policy of collaboration and open trade, which has helped them to grow at an exponential rate over the last two years.

“It is our hope through the Belt and Road development, we will unleash new economic forces for global growth, build new platforms for global development, and rebalance economic globalization so mankind will move closer to a community of common destiny,” President Xi said at the close of last months’s meetings.  Drone technology may be among the first of those new platforms and economic forces.

A growing number of people these days are exploring ways to break current limitations on Time-in-the-air (TITA) for electric UAVs. There are now three alternatives to extend the amount of time that electric drones can remain in the air performing their mission: tethered devices, solar power and in-the-field rapid battery replacement. All three solutions present considerable extensions to TITA but have limitations associated with replacing conventional and commonly used technology with new and, in some cases, cumbersome alternatives.

Now the energy industry seems to be warming (no pun intended) to the idea of Fuel Cell Power Systems and the many advantages that this technology, first proposed in 1838 by William Grove, a Welsh physicist and part-time lawyer, bring to the table.

Today, restrictions imposed on small commercially available drones of flying times of 25 minutes or less (depending on number of rotors and/or load) are being challenged by a number of manufacturers both here in the USA, Europe and China using fuel cells.

For the purpose of this article we focused on two innovators in the field of fuel cells: MMC, headquartered in the province of Shenzhen, PR China and Protonex based in Massachusetts. Both these private companies are making significant inroads in the developing and commercialization of fuel cell power system for regular use in UAVs with missions which require longer time in the air.

MMC has focused on the use of Hydrogen as the main source of fuel for their power cells. MMC is currently manufacturing and distributing two models of fuel cells, HyDrone 1800 & HyDrone 1550 with endurances (TITA) of 4.5 hours and 2.5 hours respectively.

HyDrone 1550

When we inquired about the possibility of using these alternative power sources for commercially available UAVs other than the MMC drone models, MMC officials clarified that their hydrogen fuel cells are designed for a wide range of popular commercial drones, both fixed-wing and multi-rotors, such as DJI M600, DJI M600 Pro and other heavy-payload drones.

Similarly, Protonex has focused on the use of Proton Exchange Membrane technology for small, light UAV applications weighing less than 20 lbs. The hydrogen is stored in a chemical hydride cartridge and liberated as the system requires, while the oxygen comes from the air. The fuel cell is hybridized with a battery to provide peak power required for launch or climbing. The system features power generation 2 to 3 times the specific energy of LiPo batteries.

The main advantage of fuel cells is the fact that they produce energy as required versus batteries which simply store energy and release it on demand. Every fuel cell requires two components, one is the main body of the power generating unit and the other is the fuel tank, being hydrogen or any other gas or liquid. However, since fuel cells use oxygen from the air for half the reaction, the energy density is much improved over batteries.

According to MMC, the hydrogen fuel cell weight is in direct relationship to output power and the volume of fuel, hydrogen in this case, is directly proportionate to the requirements of flight. In other words, more fuel, more weight hence more time in the air. LiPo batteries can store and release electricity, while the fuel cell is mainly to generate electricity, so the ratio between weight and power generation is fixed; with fuel cells the tank size could be increased or decreased to fit a specific mission with the power generating unit staying the same.

For example MMC’s HPS-1800 hydrogen fuel cell can be compared in terms of weight vs. output power against a lithium battery. The weight of the HPS-1800 is 9.2kg, and its power output is 1800W, the potential energy storage in the hydrogen tank is 4500Wh, so its energy density is 490Wh/kg, which is twice that of the LiPo battery.

When asked about the comparison between a fuel cell which requires an engine and a fuel tank, strikingly similar to a small internal combustion engine, both manufacturers were adamant that the reliability of the fuel cells was considerably better.

One key element of the advantage of fuel cells over internal combustion engines is the lack of moving parts and therefore complete absence of lubricants and a dramatic decrease in maintenance costs and unit replacement.

While manufacturers of fuel cells are racing to lower weight and increase output, people on the battery side of the industry are skeptical fuel cells are the way of the future. According to some engineers we interviewed for this article and who asked to remain anonymous, the current state of LiPo battery technology is plagued with inefficiencies and the improvements to lithium batteries which are possible with new materials, manufacture optimization and energy-release software will make these batteries more efficient and comparable to fuel cells.

If we compare the energy density of today’s LiPo to the equivalent product a decade ago we see a steady improvement of about 7% a year, which is definitely not a revolution, but a slow evolution.

Another big problem with some fuel cells is that they generate a lot of heat, approximately equivalent to the electricity produced up to 1,000o C in some cases. Removal of the heat is an integration challenge in an industry where plastic is a large component of every small UAV. The use of delicate thermal or infrared sensors might be affected by this close source of temperature interference.

For all of the above we have to conclude that, even though fuel cells can increase time in the air considerably, the “silver bullet” that the UAV industry is waiting, and expecting from the battery industry, is nowhere near the horizon. Fuel cells, especially low-temperature PEMs are very effective and efficient for certain applications and the extension of TITA is considerable. If the fuel cell manufacturers continue to mature this technology at the current rate, we could see a wave of UAV products in the near future with a completely new set of capabilities.

Once again we come back to the fact that in order for these gains to be meaningful we need a regulatory environment that allows flights beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS); in the meantime every manufacturer of UAVs and associated products is preparing for the day this becomes a reality and the race is on.

Chinese-based commercial drone manufacturer MMC has increased their business by over 500% in the last two years.  Since introducing the first hydrogen fuel cell drone last year, the company’s orders have skyrocketed to over $10 million.  Their power line stringing solutions, tether systems, and unique plug and play payload system are moving towards the top spots in the commercial markets.  How do they do it?  

All Business is Local

Like politics, says author John Quelch, “All Business is Local.”  Nobody understands this better than a global business – and MMC has modeled their growth on the concept.  MMC does not only sell products overseas, they’ve established joint venture factories in more than five countries.  These partnerships, says MMC, run deep.

“We rely on open, cooperative and local partnerships to expand,” says Leo, Liu, MMC’s CEO, “MMC’s deep cooperation with our partners has allowed us to grow much faster – we count on partners for their understanding of local needs and markets.  It allows us to develop better technology and better service for our customers.”

Deep Cooperation

MMC’s cooperative agreements don’t stop at product distribution. Partnerships with their joint venture factories include technology transfer of drone assembly and testing and hydrogen fuel cell manufacturing. They cooperate with partners on product development to meet specific customer demands, raw material cost controls, and navigation of local regulations.  Bringing production local means that MMC can develop understanding of local industries: from government and law enforcement to commercial applications like oil and power.  Understanding local needs and barriers to entry means that the company can provide targeted service offerings for customers, appropriate for their application and service requirements.  

The Enterprise Advantage

While MMC’s neighbor in Shenzhen, DJI is the undisputed leader in recreational drones, the common distribution method used by DJI and other mass market products doesn’t translate as well to the commercial market.  For industrial, military and police drone customers, companies need to take an enterprise approach to products and services. Joint partnerships with manufacturing facilities means that MMC can offer the customization of their solutions and service offerings – offered in a culturally appropriate format –  that large enterprise expects.

 

The Challenge of Cooperation

Engaging in deep local partnerships is not easy – but it’s worth it.  Opening the doors to the development process and engaging in deeper cooperation present challenges. Technology transfer is never simple; customization can be costly.  But the results demonstrate the benefits that can be achieved from bringing your business to your customers.

“We intent to continue to go our own way,” says Leo, “We plan to establish more joint venture factories and build strong local industries.  Cooperation with local businesses has paid off in all areas: from research and development to after-sales support.”
