Phillips 66 (NYSE: PSX), a diversified energy manufacturing and logistics company, Square Robot, Inc. and Veritank, Inc., have collaborated to successfully deploy an autonomous robot that safely performed its first in-service inspection of the interior of an aboveground diesel storage tank.
Four years ago, Square Robot was founded with the mission to design and build an autonomous robotic platform that could be leveraged to address the complex challenges of inspecting harsh, liquid-filled environments. The company, comprised of a team of subsea autonomous robotic professionals, began production on the first version of their unique robotic platform, named SR-1 in October of 2017, and launched the robot in December of that same year. This first iteration of the robotic platform was SR-1A.
Phillips 66 (NYSE: PSX), an energy manufacturing and logistics company, and Square Robot, Inc. are advancing into the unmanned robotics inspection market through the joint development of an autonomous robot that would have the capability to inspect petroleum product storage tank floors while product remains in the tank.
Our robotic platform specializes in performing NDT inspections in a range of harsh environments.
Based in Boston MA, Square Robot was founded by 3 robotics industry veterans with decades of experience in developing autonomous solutions and products.
