Planys Technologies, pioneers of underwater robotic inspection solutions in India, has launched its most advanced remotely operated vehicle (ROV) Mikros. The new product is poised to offer superior underwater inspection solutions to process industries, petrochemical refineries, and desalination plants.
Supported under Bharat Petroleum Corporation Ltd’s (BPCL) start-up scheme Project Ankur, Planys developed Mikros with BPCL team’s support and several field learnings. ROV Mikros was launched by BPCL’s Director (Refineries), Shri R. Ramachandran.
Mikros is the next generation mini-observation class portable ROV built with a compact and robust design with latest innovations and cutting-edge technologies. It has a lightweight, rugged and modular frame with an extremely efficient thrust to weight ratio that makes it an engineered masterpiece. Mikros has been designed to cater to long tether lengths, having the capabilities of collecting data in very challenging situations like high depths, turbid waters and inside long pipelines used by process industries and desalination plants. These data points and the analytical dashboard built by Planys will help forecast failures and help asset owners plan for maintenance and repairs.
