Leading 100% no man entry tank cleaning specialists Re-Gen Robotics, has licensed Eurotank to use their small robot innovation for tank cleaning in horizontal and cylindrical tanks, in forecourts and fuel storage tanks.
Fintan Duffy, Managing Director of Re-Gen Robotics said; “Over the last two years the company has completed the first worldwide, 100% no man entry tank cleans for oil and gas majors such as Shell, Phillips 66 and Vermilion. We have eliminated over 10,000 hours of CSE in tank cleans performed, leading to a major reduction in both accidents and health and safety incidents in its sector.
“This is where our focus will remain, so we looked for a company that could operate our small robot in forecourts and fuel storage tanks. Eurotank are specialists in this field, their dedicated teams located throughout the UK have extensive experience inspecting and cleaning underground fuel systems, so the arrangement was a perfect fit for them.”
As part of the deal, Re-Gen Robotics have purchased a large Ex Zone 0 rated robot from Eurotank, adding to their four bespoke tank cleaning systems already in full-time operation.
Re-Gen Robotics was awarded a United Kingdom Patent No. 2585311B, ‘Zero entry sediment removal from storage tanks’ in May 2021, for its fully contained robotic tank cleaning solution.
It is the sole authorised provider of this innovative technology and service in the UK.
The patent covers its all-in-one mobile vacuum tanker and apparatus, integrated cranage system, custom designed external and internal hydraulic ramps and ancillary equipment for its robots.
