The current tank washing method is a laborious and unsafe process. A tank-washing robot would help to eliminate the risks associated with working long hours in a confined space.
The tank-washing robots currently available in the market are mainly customised for the Oil & Gas Industry. They are not suitable for use in the service reservoir tanks, since the tanks have not been designed to allow for the deployment of such robots. Furthermore, these robots are not modular which makes it very heavy (some can weigh up to 500kg). Special lifting equipment must be deployed at the site to carry and install the robot inside the tank.
We are looking for robots which are light, modular and easily deployable. We are open to robots operating in both dry (empty tank) or wet conditions (submerged in water).
