Special offer for SPRINT Robotics Participants: NACE International Corrosion Technical Series seminar

NACE International, worldwide corrosion authority, presents a two-day seminar this October featuring thought leaders from the energy, technological, manufacturing, and engineering sectors, who will discuss various robotic technologies available to perform physical tasks and conduct inspections remotely. Featured speakers include SPRINT Robotics’ Steven Trevino, Agata Surowiec, Sonomatic; Ed Bryner, GeckoRobotics; Wes Kirkland, Eddyfi Technologies; John Nonemaker, Rosen; Rob Leary, BSI; Jim Disser, GE; and John Musgrave & Kelly Morris, MISTRAS Group.

Many industries, particularly the oil and gas industry, are moving towards unmanned technical solutions in order to reduce the safety risks inherent with direct human intervention. Integrating drones, crawler robots, and remotely operated vehicles (ROV) into an asset integrity maintenance program can reduce the number of CSE’s (confined space entries/permits/hazards) and work performed at heights. Learn about which robotics technologies are currently available in the market and gain insight as to how they can reduce safety risks and lower operations expenses.

SWAN and SPRINT Robotics Partnership

The Smart Water Networks Forum (SWAN) and the SPRINT Robotics Collaborative signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) that will promote the use of robotics for inspection and maintenance in the water sector. Both organizations expressed their intent to partner, establishing a mutually beneficial partnership that will accelerate the global smart water sector.
SPRINT Robotics will implement this MoU as part of a drive to leverage cross-sectoral initiatives of robotic development and deployment between the oil, gas, energy and water sector. Partnering with the SWAN Forum provides exciting prospects to create synergies between sectors, share knowledge and best practices, as well as connecting leading experts in the respective industries.

The Smart Water Networks Forum (SWAN) is a non-profit industry forum promoting the use of data technologies in water and wastewater networks, making them smarter, more efficient and sustainable. By fostering cross-industry collaboration, SWAN shares its members’ diverse, global expertise, develops its own research, influences smart water policies, and helps shape industry standards.

The SPRINT Robotics Collaborative is a global, not-for-profit, industry-driven foundation that promotes the development, availability, application and commercialization of robotics techniques in technical inspections and maintenance of capital intensive infrastructure. The use of robotic solutions can improve the quality and safety of maintenance, inspection and cleaning activities.
