DTU’s new research lab to develop underwater robots for offshore wind industry

By Michelle Froese DTU will inaugurate a laboratory where researchers will complete a modular robot for use in offshore wind-turbine platforms. The robot will be used for inspection, and the long-term vision is that it will be able to carry out underwater repairs on foundations and rigs.

Using just a single module, a modular robot can install and replace sensors in a subsea docking station placed on the foundations of a wind turbine to provide continuous monitoring.
“We have a vision of creating a modular robot that is simple to operate—without the need for technical experts. Initially, it will be able to inspect and monitor,”
