RIMA will support the development and deployment of robotics I&M applications with grants for two types of eligible actions: Technology Transfer Experiments (TTEs) and Technology Demonstrators (TD).
 
Technology Transfer Experiments (TTE) consist of developing, testing and validating the technical and economic viability of a robotic-based representative model or prototype system to be applied in ‘Target Use Domain’ operational environment. 
 
Technology Demonstrators (TD) consist of validating the technical and economic viability of a new or improved Robotic-based technology, product, process, service or solution in an ‘Target Use Domain’ operational environment, whether industrial or otherwise, involving where appropriate a larger scale prototype or demonstrator.
 
Challenges 
 
CHALLENGE 1: HYDRO POWER INSPECTION AND MAINTAINANCE 
  • Damn wall inspection. Concrete infrastructure inspection both over and under water. Which are of difficult access. 
  • Tunnel/pressure duct inspection, Identifying the state of many kilometres of underwater tunnels. 
  • Water intake hatch inspection: Finding blockage, foreign bodies. 
  • Sand trap inspection: High-pressure/flow rate inspection at the bottom of the pressure duct. 
  • Turbine/generator inspection: Inspection in small spaces for e.g. cavitation detection

CHALLENGE2: ELECTRICAL POWER DISTRIBUTION INFRASTRUCTURE I&M

  • Power line inspection and maintenance of electrical transmission grid including high voltage distribution net, medium voltage, domestic low voltage, and underground cables
  • Substation/switching station inspection and maintenance.
  • Power pole inspection, isolator inspection and maintenance.
  • Aerial manipulator robotics for task with contact in not electric risk point.
  • High precision aerial robotics in order to work in proximity of high voltage target area.
  • Contact-based operations to land in a power electric cable. Inspection of the power line.

CHALLENGE 3: SOLAR POWER I&M

  • Solar panel inspection, both fixed photovoltaic and tracking mirror panels.
  • Inspection of the base of a tracking solar panel.
  • Solar panel or mirror cleaning.

CHALLENGE 4: ON-SHORE WIND POWER I&M

  • Resident inspection and condition monitoring on site of e.g. electrical components.
  • Resident maintenance, e.g. replacing electrical components, interacting with hardware.
  • Turbine blade inspection for cracks and continuity to ground testing.

CHALLENGE 5: MARINE ENERGY GENERATION

  • Inspection in the marine environment including marine wind turbines, ocean thermal converter, wave energy converter, salinity gradient converter, tidal energy converter.
  • Safety infrastructure, e.g., monitoring and sampling for detection of the plastic wastes.
  • Maintenance tasks with remote human presence

CHALLENGE 6: OPEN

  • This open call provides the opportunity for value adding robotic solutions that can show significant impact within Energy Generation and Distribution and that do not fit within Challenges 1-5.

Application Deadline: 19 December 2019 at 16:00 CET
