  • Price Free of charge, open to all.
  • Location Online: 10:00 BST. Duration: 1 hour.


The presentation will provide a novel approach to confined spaces inspections in the chemical sector. Relying on drones specifically designed to operate indoor, assets like tanks, scrubbers and other dangerous, confined areas can be visually inspected with no man entry, gathering better data and with significant lower costs.

This webinar will focus on a number of case studies from real-life applications from the chemical industry with the purpose of demonstrating several benefits that can be achieved by deploying robotics solutions for the inspection of confined spaces, namely: 1. Lower risks for the personnel; 2. Shorter downtime of the asset; 3. Lower inspection costs.

The target audience for this webinar includes asset owners, inspection companies, CFOs, plant managers, operations managers, inspections managers and innovation specialists.
