The Boiler Wall Cleaning and Inspection Robot (BWCI) is an automated robotic system for water wall cleaning and inspection, removing the need of sending human inside confined spaces. GE Inspection Robotics’ collaboration with BASF Antwerp focused on operational procedures and implementation, resulting in a final industrialized system which is in operational use at BASF.
“With the technology we develop, we are disrupting current inspection and maintenance practices. We rely on and we embrace collaboration with industrial partners enabling to deploy robotics. BASF has been an enabler for many years and we appreciate the trust and exchange we get implementing robotic solutions”, says Ekki Zwicker, CEO of GE Inspection Robotics.
