Develop a domestic picking robot "S-ROB"

23.10.2021

The Russian company GIKO in 2021 began to develop a domestic picking robot "S-ROB", which has positive buoyancy without load and can work at depths of up to 5000 m. For this purpose, the concept "SWARM" was developed, the purpose of which is to provide:

  • extraction of ferromanganese nodules with a productivity comparable to traditional methods;
  • non-invasive impact on the environment;
  • maximum redundancy (reliability).

JSC

15.11.2020

In accordance with the approved “Program of sea trials of the MGBU-K drilling rig, on board the R / V GELENDZHIK, sea trials were carried out in the Pacific Ocean.

A site in the Pacific Ocean was selected.
The cable clamp is mounted.
MGBU-K was connected to the fiber-optic umbilical.
The functioning of all working systems, nodes and blocks was checked.
The MGBU-K was launched to a depth of 1700 m.
Three drilling stations have been completed.
Based on the results of the experimental and methodological work, the MGBU-K drilling rig has shown its suitability for carrying out geological exploration work on the ocean floor.
