Success stories

Following the Smart & Sustainable Marina, IADYS Jellyfishbot was adopted by the award-winner, Flisvos Marina: "At Flisvos Marina, the environmental protection and the use of innovative technologies, are two of the main pillars of our strategy. Therefore, for depollution and preservation for the marina sea water, we use the Jellyfishbot by IADYS technology, a robot/drone that collects floating waste and oil from the water surface."

Solar Cloth
Following the Smart & Sustainable Marina, Solar Cloth technology was implemented in the Yacht Club de Monaco.
