EGA launches robotics competitio­n for students


Emirates Global Aluminium, the largest industrial company in the UAE outside oil and gas, has announced the launch of this year’s edition of the Al-Robot competitio­n, which challenges university students to design and build industrial robots for use at EGA’s aluminum smelters.

The Al-Robot competitio­n is now in its fourth year, and aims to support young people to develop real-world skills in Industry 4.0 technologi­es that will be vital to the UAE’s industrial future.

The challenge this year is to develop a robotic machine capable of cleaning silt and mud from the aeration basin at EGA’s AlTaweelah site. The basin aerates used seawater prior to its return to the sea to safeguard the marine environmen­t.
