We are very pleased to announce the start of SPRINT Robotics North America – our regional chapter in North America!

Founded in January 2015 by Chevron, Gassco, Shell and Statoil, the SPRINT Robotics Collaborative has since its inception grown rapidly with various other companies joining us on our mission to achieve field use of robotics for inspection and maintenance of capital intensive infrastructure assets on a very large scale within the next ten years. The European market for inspection and maintenance robotics responded very positively to this industry-driven initiative during its first year, and with our participants being globally spread, SPRINT Robotics took the leap over the North Atlantic Ocean as a next big step in advancing the global market.

DSC_0171The North American-based Participants and Associate Participants of SPRINT Robotics met on April 6th at Chevron’s Global Headquarters in Houston, Texas, USA, for the kick-off of the North American Chapter of SPRINT Robotics. The purpose of the meeting was to start paving the way for SPRINT Robotics’ activities in North America. With the air still filled with excitement following the successful SPRINT Robotics Seminar of the previous 2 days, the meeting could not have taken place at a better time. The enthusiasm of the 19 attendees ensured lots of interaction and engagement, which contributed to very fruitful discussions.

If you would like to know more about SPRINT Robotics North America, or would like to actively take part in the initiative, we would be happy to hear from you.
