New €2m marine robot to safeguard Ireland’s offshore energy infrastructure

To maintain Ireland’s growing offshore renewable energy network, a new €2m robot has been launched that will patrol its sites to make repairs to devices.
Given the less-than-calm nature of the waters off the coast of western Ireland, the offshore renewable energy sector could struggle to reach a generator if the weather was particularly bad, potentially putting an engineer at risk.
But what if there was another safer, robotic solution?
