About Us

It is estimated that 20% of storage tank accidents are caused by cracks or raptures on the tank structure. The majority of the bulk liquids stored in these tanks include crude oil and derived products which are extremely hazardous to the environment, for example, a spill of only one gallon of oil can contaminate a million gallons of water. On the other hand, such storage tank NDT inspection process is very costly, long cycle, and harmful for both environment and human inspectors. Previously, there was no inspection solution allowing for low-cost and 100% surface tank inspection, until TankRob. TankRob allows for fully automated, 100% inspection of tanks with zero risk to the operator and significant reductions in costs.

Key Points

The TankRob project is an innovative Robotic tank inspection system that provides Low-cost, 100% surface tank inspection.

Innovative Design

An innovative robotic crawler that is capable of semi-autonomously inspecting storage tank steel plates using ultrasound technology.

Project Partners

The five partners taking part in this project are perfectly balanced consortium with respect to engineering and commercial experience.

Target Markets

Ideal for large storage tank operators and SME NDT service providers initially in European, Asian and Middle-eastern markets.

Safety In Mind

Eliminates the need for human entry in tanks, significantly reducing the downtime-related costs and eliminating the threats to health.
