(Chd,Pb)Robots To Clean Sewers in Pb’s Muktsar
The Punjab Water Supply and Sanitation Minister Razia Sultana on Monday said this project will be started from Muktsar on the festival of Maghi, which falls on Tuesday.
The minister said in the first phase, a hi-tech machine, ‘Bandicoot’, designed by Kerala’s Genrobotics will start human-free sewerage cleaning in Sri Muktsar Sahib.
“It will save employees from dangers of grave problems caused by manual cleaning of sewerage and exposure to toxic gases,” she said in a release.
These carbon-bodied robots are water-proof and equipped with sensors to ascertain toxic gases inside sewer pipes, she said.
