About Re-Gen Robotics
Grainne Mulgrew is Project Manager with Re-Gen Robotics, the first and only Zone 0 EX certified, remote controlled, ‘No Man Entry’ robotic tank cleaning company, in the UK and Ireland.
In response to market demand for safety and efficiency in tank cleaning, Re-Gen Robotics has developed award winning, robotic cleaning technology, that can easily manoeuvre into confined spaces.
Grainne will discuss how the company has developed a game changing solution to service oil tanks, which is unparalleled in terms of safety and delivery. When it comes to high hazard safety, nothing should be left to chance and this is the cornerstone of their service model.
Although safety regulations and industry standards are stringent, accidents can occur due to human error and the failure of safety devices. Exposure to hazardous petrochemicals, heat stress, lack of oxygen, slips and falls, fires and explosions are the main risks faced by personnel who manually clean oil tanks.
Re-Gen Robotics has invested over £3 million in creating three purpose-built, Ex Zone 0 rated robots and ancillary equipment, with the power to clean the largest tanks with no hassle, including heavy fuel oil, crude oil and sludge.
Regardless of the nature of the vessels, i.e., vertical, horizontal, over ground or underground, Re-Gen Robotics has the solution for non-man entry tank cleaning. The robots are designed to operate in the most inhospitable environments and with specialised access cranes, remote ATEX camera systems and engineering expertise, any size or shape of tank can be cleaned.
Re-Gen’s robotic cleaning technology has become the industry differentiator in terms of safety, within less than a year of launching, the company has lifted the safety Technology Award at the 2020 Global Tank Storage Awards. Their state-of-the-art robotic technology and service being recognised for ‘revolutionising safety in the tank terminal industry’.
