Chinese-developed robot completes first seabed cable laying

Chinese-developed robot completes first seabed cable laying as part of offshore wind energy project. This was a new breakthrough in China's efforts to stimulate the development of deep-sea robots and wind power plants.

This was reported by the Xinhua News Agency.

As reported by Sealien (Guangzhou) Technology, which developed the robot, a seabed cable and pipeline tractor named Taurus has laid cables off the coast of Zhanjiang City (Guangdong Province, South China).

Such remote-controlled tractors are expected to facilitate the construction of offshore wind farms by eliminating the need for humans to work in a complex deep-sea environment.

As the founder of Sealien (Guangzhou) Technology Ma Yiming pointed out, these robots move on a crawler and can work at a depth of up to 500 m.

Trying to reach the peak carbon emissions by 2030 and carbon neutrality by 2060, China has in recent years become the country with the largest installed offshore wind power capacity in the world.
