China will build a pressure testing machine with self-test function, deep-sea oil exploration underwater robot production and research base

dive into 3000 meters of water alone to carry out the installation, commissioning and maintenance of underwater production system. In the future, after the birth of domestic underwater robot (ROV), it will effectively solve the current technical problems of deep-sea oil exploration in China. On July 4, it was learned from the Chongqing Municipal Science and Technology Commission that Chongqing Qianwei Instrument Co., Ltd. of China Shipbuilding Industry Corporation will jointly develop underwater robots for deep-sea oil exploration with Harbin Engineering University and the Far East Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences to fill the gap in relevant fields in China

imported robots are expensive

ranging from 30million yuan to 100million yuan

it is understood that China's South China Sea is very rich in oil resources, but China's deep-sea oil exploration capacity is weak, and the deep-sea oil drilling platform and its corresponding technical level are slightly insufficient

generally speaking, if the underwater robots imported from abroad are used for mining, the price of each one ranges from 30million yuan to 100million yuan according to the water depth and function of the work. Li Hua, assistant director of the avant-garde instrument industry development department, said that what is more serious is that foreign countries may also carry out technical blockades and monopolies, which makes China face many difficulties in deep-sea oil exploration

Li Hua said that at present, only one or two enterprises in the world have achieved large-scale production of underwater robots. Domestic R & D units generally have problems such as backward production technology, lack of system integration technology, and poor stability and reliability of key components in extreme environments. Therefore, it is urgent to speed up the R & D and production of domestic underwater robots

Hercules can dive 3000 meters and work hours for precise work

compared with land robots, underwater robots are more difficult, in which manipulator, propeller and heave compensation system are the core technology. Chen Youxiang, an avant-garde instrument engineer, said that most of the seabed oil production equipment rotates 200 tons from one steel ball above to three stationary steel balls below. To push them to a specified position like Hercules, underwater robots need to rely on mechanical arms

because the underwater robot is difficult to fix, it also needs propeller and heave compensation system to control the underwater attitude. This must be very accurate. If the equipment is not installed in place due to the slightest mistake, it may cause the risk of oil leakage or equipment damage, and the loss will be quite heavy

at present, the project plans to achieve digestion, absorption and re innovation through the introduction and cooperation of Russian technology, and gradually break through the technical bottleneck in the development and production process of deep-sea underwater robot system

in the future, the working depth of underwater robots will be greatly increased from the current 300 meters to 3000 meters, and they can work continuously for hours. Chen Youxiang said

According to the introduction, China is expected to provide 12million yuan of financial support for this international scientific and technological cooperation. At the same time, the enterprise will also have nearly 20million yuan of supporting funds for the project in the early stage, research and cultivate its practical ability, imagination and creativity, issue underwater robots for deep-sea oil exploitation with independent intellectual property rights, and establish a research, development and production base

it is estimated that after 5 years of price war, many manufacturers will realize the industrialization of underwater robots, achieve the goal of annual production of sets, and the output value of the whole industry will reach 30billion yuan. Li Hua said that in addition to deep-sea oil exploration, underwater robots will play an important role in marine rescue and salvage, underwater engineering construction, marine scientific research, seabed mineral exploration, ocean operations and military fields
