IOC inks pact with Genrobotics to develop robots for cleaning internal tank

IBNS | @indiablooms | 25 Jun 2022, 03:50 pm

Thiruvananthapuram/UNI: Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) has signed an MoU with Genrobotics, a robotics company, to develop robots for internal tank cleaning and inspection at refineries.

As cleaning and maintenance of petroleum tanks are time consuming and unsafe, the IOC tied up with Genrobotics to develop robots that ensures 100 percent no-man entry across the refineries.

Genrobotics' primary offering is the Bandicoot robot, the world's first robotic scavenger, which helps clean confined spaces such as sewer manholes, sewer wells, stormwater manholes, oily water sewers (OWS) and storm water sewers (SWS) in refineries.

Currently, smart cities, Urban Local Bodies (ULBs), refineries, multinational companies, townships and housing colonies across 14 states are leveraging Bandicoot robots, thereby eliminating the need for human entry into manholes.

CEO and co-founder of Genrobotics Vimal Govind MK said, "Petroleum is one of the major industries in India providing a fair share of GDP to the economy and we believe that our robotic solutions can address not only more safety but also productivity in this industry."
