Corrosion Technical Series

Future Robotic Technologies in Confined Spaces

Saturday, March 14, 2020 (in conjunction with CORROSION 2020) 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. Hilton America’s Houston Hotel

This one-day seminar will focus on current, and future shifts in asset owner requirements, and emerging methodologies, technologies and materials for asset integrity maintenance. In response to Health Safety Security and Environment (HSSE) risks and corresponding liability issues and costs, many asset owners are employing mitigation initiatives to reduce, or in some cases, completely eliminate human confined space entry (CSE) altogether.

This forward-looking series of discussions will offer a first-hand look at one large asset-owner’s aggressive new plan to fully eliminate direct human interaction in permanent CSE. Additionally, existing processes and technology of maintenance service providers, original equipment manufacturers (OEM), and coatings manufacturers will be discussed to showcase the quantum shift in industry.
