Drydocks World-Dubai settles for robotic cleaning technology
 

The Envirobot removes coatings from vessels by applying ultra high pressure water to the surface

Chariot Robotics LLC announced the delivery and installation of four of its Envirobot systems to Drydocks World-Dubai. This environmentally friendly technology removes coatings from vessels using a patented magnetically attached robot applying ultra high pressure water to the surface and vacuuming away the effluent. This radio controlled system increases productivity, improves worker safety and allows other work items to proceed simultaneously.
 
Mohammad Rizal, Director - Production of Drydocks World-Dubai said, "We are pleased to have selected this technology for its beneficial environmental factors and to enhance our own productivity. As we become increasingly at home with the operating systems, we will consider increasing the number of units."
 
"Drydocks World-Dubai has studied all the available robotic water blasting systems worldwide, and we are very pleased that they have chosen the Envirobot. The Envirobot eliminates airborne particulates generated by grit blasting, creating a cleaner and efficient workplace. We hope that this is the beginning of a long term relationship which can extend to other Drydocks World facilities," said Stephen Johnson, CEO of Chariot Robotics LLC.
