IADYS announces major expansion in Taiwan with Anliatec Technology

IADYS, French innovative start-up developing Artificial Intelligence and robotic products in service of environment, located in France, on the Mediterranean coast near Marseille, has announced today its expansion in Taiwan with its new partner Anliatec Technology Corporation Limited.

Since its inception in 2016, IADYS has continuously expanded internationally. With this successful strategy, IADYS can proudly count on a significant establishment in the Asia-Pacific area (Japan, Singapore and Australia), in Western Europe (Spain, Germany, Switzerland, United Kingdom, Finland and Norway) and more recently in Dubai and USA.

The start-up is known for its Jellyfishbot, a compact and robust robot which collects autonomously or remotely the waste (bottles, cans, plastic wrappers, cigarette butts, microplastics, paint particles etc…) and the oils on the surface of water bodies. Ideal for cleaning up the harbours, industrial and touristic areas the Jellyfishbot is a major tool for the maintenance and the preservation of the water bodies. By acting as close as possible to the source of the pollution, it prevents the dispersion of the pollutants into rivers, seas and oceans.

With more than 40 robots adopted equally by marinas, commercial ports, shipyards, private companies dedicated to waste collection such as SMA (Monaco Sanitation company) in Monaco, by companies specialised in industrial sites’ depollution such as Serpol, and by one private petrochemical company, the efficiency and reliability of the Jellyfishbot are no longer in question. Lately, Research Institutes in France and abroad chose to acquire a robot to conduct research on microplastics. Finally, several theme parks and leisure centers are beginning to be equipped. For example, the Yokohama Hakkeijima Sea Paradise aquarium uses the robot to maintain their water bodies but also to educate and develop the awareness of their audience regarding the coast preservation.  

With its current network of distributors in Japan, Singapore, Australia, United Kingdom, Finland and Norway, in addition to the network operating on the French market, IADYS turned to Anliatec Technology Co. Ltd. to expand its solution in Taiwan, strengthening its position on international markets.

Nicolas Carlési, founder and CEO of the company shares his thoughts regarding this partnership: “We are thrilled to be partnering with Anliatec and counting them among our distributors. Taiwan was one of the first in Asia to announce in 2018 the ban of single-use plastics. Since then, the authorities are working hard and the plastic reduction, especially in order to get rid of the marine debris. We have no doubt that our partnership with Anliatec Technology Co. Ltd. will be fruitful and will help us to quickly implement our Jellyfishbot solution in Taiwan.”

Cedric Jaeg, co-founder and CEO of Anliatec Technology commented: On behalf of Anliatec, I want to thank Nicolas and the IADYS team for their trust in our company, we are delighted by this new collaboration, the Jellyfishbot is a state-of-the-art technology that supports the fight against marine waste. At Anliatec we believe that we have a responsibility to care for and protect the environment we live in. Taiwan, as an oceanic nation, has a responsibility to do its part in the conservation of marine ecosystems, and deploys consequent efforts to reduce plastic waste. Our company position itself in this fight against plastic pollution, the Jellyfishbot designed by IADYS will help us in our mission. I’m glad to tell you that we are already in talk with marinas and commercial harbours in Taiwan.”

The next few months look promising for IADYS, with discussions underway with distributors in Middle East, North Africa, New Zealand, the USA and Canada.

“The order book is filling up fast, and the set-up of the second level of autonomy, with detection of moving obstacles this time, is planned for the second term. We expect to reach our target of 90 robots in service by the end of the year”  added Nicolas Carlési.
