Transforming Ideas into Solutions with the Oil and Gas Technology Centre

The Innovation Hub, a state-of-the-art facility designed to drive innovation and accelerate new technologies to help unlock the full potential of the UK North Sea, is a perfect fit for our Multi-Mission Modular (IM3™) technology. Inuktun Europe Ltd. was recently approached by the Oil & Gas Technology Centre (OGTC) to participate at Robotics Week, an event taking place at the Innovation Hub October 30 through November 2, 2017. The centre brings forth a new initiative to help unlock decommissioning efforts in the North Sea oil and gas sector, aiming to obtain technology required to maximize economic recovery, assist in making sure that facilities are decommissioned efficiently, and help the UK become a global leader in this growth market.

VT150 Vertical Crawler™ in View

VT150 Vertical Crawler™ in View

Earlier this year we reported on how Inuktun’s VT150 Vertical Crawler™ (VT150VC) was used by Occidental Petroleum Corporation to conduct FOSAR (foreign object search and retrieval) at a plant in South Texas. Although the remote operation didn’t require the vertical travel the VT150VC is designed for, it proved optimal for recovering a missing grinding wheel inside a 90-foot pipe. See it for yourself in a new video!

Inuktun Sighting #40: Nexxis Rental Fleet Expands on Demand

Inuktun’s Australian channel partner, Nexxis, is increasing its fleet of rental equipment due to the increased demand in an underserved market. According to Nexxis’ Director, Jason De Silveira, “Inuktun’s products offer a design alternative to the conventional crawler systems available in Australia and possibly the world”. For a long time, the requirement has been to inspect straight, flat pipe. With heavy industries like oil and gas, and mining projects with compact construction design, the ability to inspect a maze of pipework effectively has been a recognized a gap in the market. Enter Inuktun’s multi-mission, modular (IM3) technology.
