"Our Robots Can Safely Inspect Aboveground Storage Tanks Saving Lives, Money and the Environment"
At Intrepid Robotics, we make robots that save lives, save money and help protect the environment.
When fully developed our robots will inspect, clean and repair tanks, tanks that hold water, and tanks that contain hazardous materials, such as gasoline and other chemicals.
Today, to maintain tanks, the contents have to be removed, and human beings have to go inside. And that’s costly, but more importantly it’s very dangerous! 95% of accidents, often involving the loss of life, occur when tanks are being taken out of service.
The “empty” tanks contain hazardous and volatile vapors that can, and too often do, explode or catch fire with the slightest spark. And the process of emptying tanks releases these damaging vapors to the atmosphere.
Between inspections, tanks often leak. And even the smallest leaks, over time, can result in the loss of thousands of gallons that could be used to fuel our vehicles, but instead are polluting the ground.
