August 7th, 2017
EM&I is now a participant of the SPRINT Robotics Collaborative.
The SPRINT Robotics Collaborative is a new industry driven initiative that promotes the development, the availability, and application of robotics techniques in technical inspections and maintenance of capital intensive infrastructure. The use of Robotics can improve the quality and safety of maintenance, inspection and cleaning in the oil & gas industry.
Using robotics in the domain of technical inspection and maintenance of floating assets is of vital importance because of the urgency to minimize the impact on safety and the environment.
In addition, robotic inspection and maintenance may reduce shutdown times, preventing human entry of vessels and other equipment, as well as reduction of costs related to services required to enable human entry.
Danny Constantinis, CEO said “We lead the HITS JIP and by joining Sprint Robotics Collaborative, we plan to cooperate with this sector of our industry and learn about and help with the exciting developments being made by SPRINT Robotics which we are sure will enhance safety and effectiveness of our service delivery and our leadership of the HITS JIP”.
