SensaBot will perform remote inspections of oil and gas facilities in the Kashagan field, located in the northern Caspian Sea. Working in this field is challenging due to the area’s extreme climate and the high concentration of hydrogen sulfide gas present in the Kashagan reservoir.
SensaBot is designed to withstand these demanding conditions. It will feature a mobile robotic base with a sensor boom tipped with inspection sensors. A human operator will remotely drive SensaBot and deploy its sensors to inspect pipes, fittings, and valves. The robot will be small enough to go almost anywhere a human worker can go and will be equipped to detect obstacles in its path.
SensaBot will be certified to meet IECEx standards for electronics in explosive environments and ANSI safety standards for guided industrial vehicles.
