ADNOC Gas, a subsidiary of Abu Dhabi National Oil Company, has awarded a multi-year contract, valued at approximately $30m (Dh110.18m), to Gecko Robotics and Al Masaood Energy.  

The agreement focuses on deploying Gecko’s robotic technology and AI-driven data platform across ADNOC Gas’ operations.  

It is expected to enhance predictive maintenance, thereby increasing efficiency, minimising downtime and reducing CO₂ emissions, while upholding high standards of health, safety and environmental protection. 

Gecko’s advanced wall-climbing robots are equipped with specialised sensors that create digital maps of industrial assets.  

The company’s software platform, Cantilever, integrates this data with operational metrics to facilitate precise repairs and proactive maintenance.  

Gecko’s technology is adopted by various industries and government bodies to improve the longevity and performance of essential infrastructure including power plants and oil refineries.

The contract also introduces a novel approach to predictive maintenance, enabling inspections of certain vital assets while they remain operational.  

During the pilot phase, Gecko’s solutions demonstrated a 99.6% increase in asset coverage and a 93% improvement in efficiency compared with traditional manual methods.  

Furthermore, the elimination of scaffolding in manual inspections is expected to reduce lost-time injury rates by 33%. 

This partnership follows Gecko Robotics’ recent establishment of its international headquarters in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) under the Ministry of Economy’s NextGenFDI programme, which seeks to attract cutting-edge technology companies to the region. 

Gecko Robotics co-founder and CEO Jake Loosararian said: “ADNOC and the UAE are at the forefront of using Industry 4.0 tools to boost efficiency and decrease their carbon footprint – and the world is noticing. His Excellency Dr. Sultan al-Jabar’s leadership on the world stage at COP28 speaks to ADNOC’s commitment to using new technology to reduce carbon emissions and Gecko is proud to enlist our robots and software to that cause. Great things are happening in the UAE and we are excited to continue to increase our footprint as part of the NextGenFDI initiative.” 

Last month, ADNOC Gas announced its intention to invest $13bn in growth opportunities over the next five years, both domestically and internationally.  

In 2023, ADNOC Gas committed $4.9bn to contracts centred on decarbonisation, digital innovation and AI technology.
