Subsea Robotics for Renewables

As the global fleet of offshore renewables fleet increases, ways to reduce the cost and increase the efficiency and safety of operations and maintenance work, using robotics and autonomous systems, will also grow. Elaine Maslin reports.
Robotics and autonomous systems are moving into many areas of modern day life. It’s becoming harder to avoid them, from our phones to automotive systems and now offshore energy renewable projects.
Both are seen as tools to do otherwise dull, dirty or dangerous work, without human involvement, but also as a way to reduce operational cost and to produce more reliable repeatable data.
