Traditional cleaning processes meant that water towers and drinking-water reservoirs had to be emptied and manually cleaned or divers sent down. In both options, the reservoir has to be taken offline, which can lead to major disruptions in the main supply system. Emptying a reservoir is time consuming and cleaning is labor intensive. Sending divers down in drinking water also entails a risk for contaminating the water. When we developed the VR-600 our ambition was to design a vehicle that could clean effectively without having to shut down the reservoir and without sending personnel down into the reservoir.


The VR-600 is remote controlled and equipped with rotating brushes and a powerful pump that directly pumps out all loosened sediment – without raising turbidity in the reservoir. The VR-600 is equipped with a video camera that facilitates inspection of the inside of the reservoir. The entire cleaning process is documented and the customer receives both a videotape and a written report.
