ULC Showcases Innovation at Northeast Gas Association’s Annual Gas Operations School

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.
