Square Robot was established in 2016 when three veterans of the robotics industry identified a critical need to improve aboveground storage tank inspections. The autonomous robotic solution developed is a huge step forward for the industry. In-Service inspection of aboveground storage tanks removes people from the dangerous environments and minimize hazardous vapor and chemical releases to the environment while keeping the tank operational. The Square Robot solution dramatically reduces the cost of tank inspection and intervention with no compromise on data or information quality - truly transformational.
