UNEXMIN GeoRobotics

About Us

Pioneers in surveying solutions for flooded environments

We are much more than a consultancy company

UNEXMIN GeoRobotics is a private spin-off company arising from the UNEXMIN project and that has the IP of the robotic platform there produced. UGR is an enterprise owned by partners from UNEXMIN. This means that all of us working for UGR have a great passion for innovation and providing solutions for complex tasks.

It is our goal to share our unique skills with the industry to solve complex problems that otherwise go unanswered. We are designing and manufacturing of custom-made underwater robotic mine surveyors, underwater sampling and production systems.
