This time the world conference and exhibition for inspection and maintenance robotics took place from 22 - 23 October 2019 at the conference centre De Doelen in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. It is a platform to share knowledge and meet a wide range of industry experts.

In the oil and gas processing industry, the requirement for pipe inspections in the plant area is continuously increasing. This is due to a gradually ageing infrastructure and the resulting increase in potential safety risks.

Welded joints of pipes that protect high-voltage cables need special attention as, in a worst-case scenario, excessive edge offset or burrs might damage a cable when there is contact.

Nuclear power plants use one or more nuclear reactors for heat generation. This heat in the form of thermal energy is used to generate steam through specific thermodynamic processes, and eventually to operate a turbine.
