|Our customer Danny Chua, Managing Director of CYC International Pte Ltd in Singapore, wins the WSH Award 2016 (Innovation category), the annual prize for Workplace Safety and Health organized by the WSH Council in Singapore and supported by the Ministry of Manpower.
CYC International specializes in industrial cleaning, often inside fuel tanks and refineries. Tanks are narrow and dangerous environments, where workers are exposed to risks such as falls, exposure to petrochemical substances and heat stress.
Thanks to Lombrico Melissa Mini Excavator, designed in collaboration with Gerotto, CYC International was able to safeguard safety and health of its workers using a remote controlled, robotic system to perform tank cleaning. Not only the work required less people, but it also was done in almost half the time.
Lombrico Melissa is an ATEX certified Mini Excavator, designed to work in high explosion risk environments. Thanks to its high-pressure water nozzles it can wash away the oily material on the walls of the tanks, which is then sucked up through the suction nozzle connected to an aspirating machine.
