Robotics and artificial intelligence

Find out more about how robotics will revolutionise production speed, quality and employee safety.


Chemical and petrochemical plants are complex systems consisting of several interconnected process units. Given the exposure to toxic gases, heat and the risk of spillage and catastrophic failures, such plants present challenging environments for the employees. Modern chemical plants will be designed with an extensive use of robotics and automation for manufacturing, monitoring, quality control, inspection and material handling processes.


We are collaborating with the Surrey Technology For Autonomous Systems And Robotics (STAR LAB). Combining their expertise with our chemical plant design knowledge, to achieve automation and autonomy for future chemical plants that can perform routine as well as high risk tasks more efficiently.
