Siemens Energy, Nemo Link, Ross Robotics and Elia Group collaborate over development of autonomous robots to optimise the inspection of HVDC converter halls

Elia Group has launched a collaboration with three partners to develop EMC autonomous robots, which it will use for the inspection of its HVDC converter halls across Belgium and Germany. The use of such robots will improve asset inspections and maximise the operation of HVDC converter halls.

  • The use of robots for high-voltage direct current (HVDC) converter hall inspections will reduce the risks, time and costs associated with manual inspections
  • The development of robots which have electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) will allow such inspections to be undertaken without the need to temporarily switch off the assets under examination
