In a second tranche of investment, Re-Gen Robotics has committed a £1 million spend in an additional Zone 0, explosion proof, tank cleaning robot and an ADR certified jet/vac tanker.
The firm, which specialises in remotely controlled, ‘no man entry’ robotic tank cleaning in the petrochemical industry, is also recruiting four new employees as part of its ongoing expansion plans.
Managing Director of Re-Gen Robotics, Fintan Duffy, said: “The industry is striving for more predictable methods of cleaning, inspection and assessment and there is a very real appetite across the board, for ‘no man entry’ tank cleaning. Tank owners globally are increasingly looking for tank cleaning and waste product removal systems that can perform safe, efficient and cost-effective operations.
“Some of the major oil companies in Great Britain have been instructed by their boards to find an alternative to manual tank cleaning, with several postponing cleans on tanks, until they have found a solution that guarantees operational safety and conserves the health and well-being of personnel.
“Applying fully integrated, ‘no man entry’, robotic cleaning technology is where a monumental difference can be made to safety in the petrochemical industry and this major investment places us in a strong position to service our clients’ demands and gives us a solid platform to continue our roll-out plan.”
Mr Duffy said that one of the firm’s aspirations is to create new standards across the tank cleaning industry by surpassing the highest international safety legislation and directives.
