Our Company

The company was founded following an identification that the traditional approach to removing toxic and flammable oil sludges from storage tanks was largely a manual and extremely hazardous task.

In short, operatives wearing fully enclosed protective suits and breathing apparatus were still being asked to use shovels, brooms, and hoses to remove sludge from tanks. Given that a crude oil storage tank may well contain 1,000 tes of sludge and consist of a 1 m deep layer across the tank bottom, it is clear that this hazardous, lengthy, and arduous task is not in fact one that humans are well adapted to carry out. Health & Safety statistics bear out the fact that the number of confined space deaths within industry remains stubbornly resistant to efforts to reduce it. Robotic sludge removal isolates the human from the hazard, representing a particularly effective way to tackle this problem.

One of Re-Gen Robotics’ goals is to demonstrate a safer, smarter, and faster approach is possible. Through this thinking, our purpose evolved as “Engineering solutions for better working environments”.

Thus Re-Gen Robotics set about “Revolutionising safety in oil storage tank cleaning” becoming the first provider of Zone 0, (Class1 Div1) Ex-certified robotic tank cleaning technology in the UK. Today we operate throughout UK and Europe, providing solutions for all types of storage tank cleaning.
