There is a growing demand for robotics systems in production, inspection, and maintenance within the energy industry – both onshore and offshore – driven by the desire to minimize the risk of human exposure to hazardous environments and reduce operating costs. However, a significant gap exists between the current workforce's expertise and the rapidly evolving technologies. Deploying robots in inspecting, monitoring, and maintaining energy assets requires an in-depth understanding of robotic systems, including the ability to identify a specific use case, assess the impact of robotics on the business, and maintain the value of the robot to ensure it continues to operate safely and profitably.
To address these challenges, the Subsea Systems Institute (SSI), collaborating with SPRINT Robotics, has developed a Robotics in Energy course focusing on safety, reliability, business impact, and use cases. The micro-credential course provides participants with a comprehensive understanding of the robot integration process, including economic evaluation and qualification. It also includes an evaluation tool/protocol for risk and safety management, enabling participants to assess the feasibility of incorporating robots into their working environment.
The program will take place on May 5 (Friday) and May 6 (Saturday) from 8:00am-5:00pm, US Central Time with breaks in between each session. The Friday session will be held at UH Technology Bridge, and the May 6 session will be held at Quasset Innovation Hub, located at 11941 Cutten Rd. Suite 100 and will feature a Sonardyne site tour and robotics demonstration. Attendees will also have exposure to our laboratories and the university.
