eVTOL Aircraft of the Future for Mining Transport & Exploration
The unprecedented potential benefits for Nova’s mining operations through the innovative application of clean aircraft technology, have been the primary motive behind the Company’s investment in aerospace company RotorX.
RotorX is in the process of developing the ground-breaking RX eTransporter, an electric vertical take-off and landing aircraft, designed for difficult terrain and heavy payloads of up to 1600lbs.
The unique advancement is its potential ability to fly for more than 1.5 hours (or hover for more than 45 minutes) on a single charge, together with a maximum air speed of over 160mph which translates into a range of up to 200 miles.
Its future application is the capability to support remote mining sites with the essential tasks of cargo delivery and transportation of personnel, which will improve both productivity and operational safety.
The RX is intended to be produced both as a piloted aircraft and in a pilotless version. It will be a model of sustainability for Nova as part of its ESG development, while at the same time lowering estimated logistics costs by a third.
