As of June 2019, Steven Trevino joins the SPRINT Robotics Collaborative team. Within his role, he will support the SPRINT Robotics Collaborative effort primarily in North America, helping to grow the global acceptance and use of robotics for I&M, align all parties in the value chain, and organize regional industry events such as demonstrations, seminars, roadshows and workshops. Steven will also help drive the various action groups, so as to encourage collaboration globally within I&M robotics community.
The SPRINT Robotics Collaborative network around the world continues to grow at a rapid pace. This growth includes new participants, new market sectors such as energy, civil & public infrastructure and aerospace, and new regulations which will fast track the usage of robotics for inspection and maintenance activities.
Prior to joining the SPRINT Robotics team, Steven worked at Diakont Advanced Technologies as Business Development and Corporate Strategy Manager, where he was responsible for opening and managing the regional office co-located in the PRCI Technology Development Center in Houston, Texas. He has worked for the Pipeline Research Council International, Inc. (PRCI) as Program Manager for the Integrity and Inspection committee, as well as for Oceaneering, where he provided operational support as a Mechanical Integrity Engineer and Subsea Applications Engineer for onshore and offshore facilities. Within Oceaneering’s Asset Integrity division, Steven worked on new product development, providing technical and product expertise to support customers as well as training the sales staff. Steven is offshore-qualified and spent one year in a rotational development program in Norway supporting the Oceaneering North Sea customer base.
Steven is a 2010 graduate of Texas A&M with a degree in Mechanical Engineering and is a member of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Executive Advisory Committee for Robotics in Inspection and Maintenance, National Association of Corrosion Engineers (NACE) Executive Advisory Committee for Robotic Corrosion Technology, as well as serving as a Coordinator for the American Petroleum Institute’s (API) Inspection and Mechanical Integrity Summit.
Steven comes from a participant company of SPRINT Robotics and has already been involved in the initiative in various ways, including presenting at the 1st World Conference for Inspection and Maintenance Robotics in Galveston, and participating in the storage tank action groups and on the North America roadshow.
Steven commented: “I look forward to providing local support for operators and service providers in North America, further advancing acceptance and utilization of robotics for inspection and maintenance activities.”
