OC Robotics is a proud member of the PETROBOT Project; the consortium consists of 10 members and we are working together to develop a series of robotic inspection solutions. These robots are to be used by asset inspectors to conduct remote inspection of pressure vessels and aboveground storage tanks, widely used in the oil, gas and petrochemical industry.

The objectives of the PETROBOT project are:

  • To minimise the exposure of personnel to potentially hazardous conditions
  • To reduce downtime
  • To save resources by utilising robotic technology

The PETROBOT Project is supported by an EU grant from the FP7 Robotics program and is a three year project.
