The Northeast Gas Association’s Gas Operations School kicked off on Tuesday, June 7th at Bryant University in Smithfield, Rhode Island. The annual event provides gas industry professionals with education, hands-on-training and industry networking and it is one of the most successful gas operations events in the northern United States.
ULC’s project and safety manager, Elizabeth Gillick, along with Steven McKeefrey, engineering project manager, instructed a group of attendees and shared information on the variety of uses for CCTV camera and crawler systems, and how to utilize robotics in live gas pipelines. Held on Wednesday June 8th, the class provided real-life use cases on ULC’s cast iron joint sealing robot, CISBOT, the new CIRRIS XI™ and CIRRIS XR™ Robotic System, as well as the PRX250, VGCs and the DWX200 dewatering camera.
In the exhibit hall, visitors to the ULC stand were able to bring their learning full circle and see CISBOT on display, and watch mock demonstrations of the PRX250 system. Additional information was available on many aspects of our work, including other innovation projects, our various pipeline robotics systems and our technical field services.
