Robotic underwater inspection is a need that has been identified in SUEZ for several applications in asset maintenance. The Sibiu Pro ROV was tested for the inspection of a marine outfall in front of the municipality of Cambrils. The final section of the outfall containing the diffusors was observed from a short distance. The robot was operated from a boat thanks to the wire without the need of divers. Final outcomes of the test showed that the operation could be easily automatized reducing the risks of workers without increasing the cost.
Sibiu Pro has been developed by Nido Robotics SL, an Innovative Technology Company based in Murcia, Spain, dedicated to the development and manufacture of underwater drones (ROV) and related technologies (underwater video systems, sensors, etc.). www.nidorobotics.com
