Transocean decided to partner with FANUC’s Authorized System Integrator, ARC Specialties, to design an automated solution to handle the drilling riser connections, which was the most labor-intensive operation. Before automation, this hazardous job required team members to carry heavy bolts and use brute force to manipulate torque wrenches for each bolt on the riser.

By partnering with ARC Specialties, Transocean has successfully implemented a robotic solution that keeps their workers out of hazardous red zones and improves the overall safety onsite. The two FANUC M-900iB/280 FoundryPro robots offer enhanced rigidity for superior precision even in tough environments; unlocking maximum efficiency gains by allowing team members to focus on different tasks!
