DrainBot is the first autonomous system developed for the maintenance of tunnel drainage. Instead of the dominant water jetting technology, DrainBot applies intelligent robots to allow for removal and preventative maintenance of the drainage pipes.
This smart innovation completely removes the consumption of water from the process. Alsoinstead of using fossil fuels for operating the machinery, DrainBot relies on electricity sourced from a redundant battery system included in the body of the robot. By providing the operator with an autonomous charging system, DrainBot ensures almost permanent operation ultimately enabling preventative and predictive maintenance of the tunnel drainage. In addition, the robotic system collects various data through multiple installed sensors on the robotic body, for a better data analysis and interpretation which enables optimal personalised drainage maintenance.
DrainBot GmbH was established in Graz, Austria, in 2019. This is also where all products are developed and manufactured. With the advice and support from the best professionals with decades of experience in engineering, innovation and tunnel maintenance, the young start-up delivers high-quality products and services for tunnel operators across geographies and sectors. Through partnerships and support of the leaders of innovation in Europe, DrainBot is continuously growing and working on delivering even more value to its existing and future customers.
With the financial support of AWS, DrainBot will further develop its innovative robotic systems for tunnel drainage maintenance.
DrainBot is honoured to have been awarded with the Born Global Champion 2021 and looks forward to setting further milestones worldwide with its innovation.
The Zentrum am Berg was officially opened by the Montan University Leoben and put into operation on October 18th 2021.
