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 2019.
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.
From concept to commercialization to field deployment, our project managers, engineers, sensor scientists, machinists and technicians are the best in the field at performing innovation projects for utility, energy and industrial companies.
ULC Robotics’ Aerial Services division partners with electric utilities, gas utilities and industrial companies to conduct unmanned aerial inspection of overhead power lines, pipelines and other assets using custom-developed UAVs and advanced sensors.
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.
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
