ULC Robotics helps gas and electric utilities, and the broader energy industry confront the increasing need to repair and maintain their pipelines and infrastructure while causing less disruption to the public, reducing the greenhouse gas emissions and reducing costs by developing and deploying innovative robotic repair systems, advanced inspection systems, no-dig process improvements and new tooling.
ULC Robotics was named one of the top 50 most influential companies in the global robotics business by Robotics Business Review in 2016.
Our technical field operations teams specialize in the deployment, operation and field maintenance of complex robotic systems, inspection crawlers and camera systems. We collaborate with you to ensure innovation becomes business-as-usual.
ULC’s highly trained crews perform daily field work involving no-dig, core-and-vac and keyhole processes to improve efficiency and reduce operational costs. This division also performs turn-key meter exchanges, valve inspections and other technical services.
From concept to commercialization, our project managers, engineers and technicians are the best in the field at performing innovation projects. Commercialized solutions are then deployed under our Pipeline Robotics or Energy Services divisions.
Through the use of our trenchless technology and processes, energy utilities are improving safety, reducing costs, reducing methane emissions and improving the efficiency of maintenance operations.
Our CIRRIS XI™, CIRRIS XR™ and CISBOT robots allow gas utilities to avoid the tremendous expense of direct burial pipeline replacement. Our technology extends the usable life of large diameter cast iron gas mains by providing a means to assess the structural integrity of the pipe and by renewing the mechanical and jute joints at a lower cost and with less disruption than replacement or other rehabilitation techniques.READ MORE
This innovative push rod camera system enables high-quality and reliable internal visual assessments of live 2″-12″ cast iron, steel and plastic gas distribution mains. The system’s unique features allow gas utilities to inspect more gas main while obtaining high resolution images of the main through fewer street excavations.
Our R&D team and operator qualified field crews work every day to develop and deploy complex pipeline robotics, visual inspection systems, updated processes and new tooling. The projects below highlight some of the work we have done in the lab and in the field.
ULC Robotics is a leader in developing and deploying innovative robotic technology and processes that help pipeline operators and energy companies repair, inspect and assess their infrastructure. Our team of engineers, machinists, project managers, field technicians and support staff work daily to find solutions to challenging energy industry problems.
