Action Group Storage Tanks
Action Group Process Piping
AGST Coordinator: Nader Sharara (Suncor)
The AGST group is a diverse group of asset owners, robotic developers, and service suppliers which allows us to stay up to date on developments and support one another in the journey of robotic use cases for integrity assessment of Aboveground Storage Tanks.
In line with the SPRINT Robotics Roadmap we publish and maintain industry publications that further support and guide robotic use cases for Industry application. Internally through our diverse backgrounds, we share experiences of robotic deployments to further speed up technology adoption and promote further enhancement of integrity assessment practices. The group is actively involved in validation testing of robotic applications to ensure integrity threats are managed for robotic use cases.
AGPP Coordinator: Jürgen Moors (BASF)
The AGPP allows the whole value chain to come together and to tackle the complex issues concerning inspection and maintenance of process piping.
It is a very diverse picture where creativity and cooperation are the only road to success. The AGPP creates exactly that environment in the larger set-up of SPRINT Robotics.
SRLA Coordinator: Mauricio Galassi (Petrobras)
“SRLA will increase integration between Latin American and global robotics initiatives for Inspection & Maintenance, promoting business opportunities and equipment availability. Regional editions are an important tool for technology dissemination.”
SRAP Coordinator: Shanon Vos (Woodside)
“Bringing industry, end-users, and vendors together to share and develop real use cases progresses innovation and creates a sustainable robotics market to allow all collaborators to thrive.”
SREU Coordinator: Ekkehard Zwicker (Waygate Technologies)
“The European Chapter played an active role in setting up and influencing the European Robotics Roadmap which will help to guide the research activities as well as future research grants into a direction we regard as key for our industry. A main achievement was to get Inspection & Maintenance as one of the four key pillars of robotic activities in European robotic research.”
SRNA Coordinator: Eric Sjerve (IRISNDT)
“SRNA has significantly accelerated the use of commercially available systems by connecting directly with end users at their sites of operation, while also facilitating their continued development supported by asset owner needs.”
