Tianjin Municipal Services has already deployed robots in over 80 operations in the city, suburbs and nearby mountainous areas.
The state grid company plans to produce 200 devices per year.
Automation captures not only energy services, but also more complex infrastructure sectors. Facebook recently announced the creation of a robot for winding fiber around power lines.
