MTR100: Cellula Robotics

Marine Technology Reporter
Cellula Robotics is an engineering solutions company specializing in turnkey design and production of seafloor intervention and subsea robotic systems. Its products are primarily used for geotechnical and geophysical applications. Through its team of engineers, designers and technicians based in Vancouver, Canada, Cellula has developed experience in projects that require integrated mechanical, electrical, hydraulic, and software elements in a subsea environment. Cellula has been involved in projects deployed offshore from the U.K to Japan, Papua New Guinea to the Gulf of Mexico. Cellula supports these international projects with offshore personnel, on-call staff and a network of agents.

Cellula Robotics has grown from designing subsystems for client-built vehicles to supplying complete turnkey subsea robotic solutions with an emphasis on autonomous operation. In the last three years Cellula has built several highly automated seafloor drills. Its latest, the CRD100, is state of the art, self-contained, remotely operated geotechnical analysis tools that can drill, case, core and provide real time CPT data up to 150m below the seabed in water depths of 3,000m.

In addition, Cellula has recently supplied a subsea excavator, deep water, high capacity plankton sampler and several well intervention valve packs. Cellula offers a range of subsea components including pressure tolerant electronics, smart valve packs, water and ground fault detection.
