PETROBOT 1st Birthday

Dear PETROBOT team,

Happy 1st Birthday!

I am excited about the year that we have been together and what we all have achieved in such a short time. During the past year we have successfully defined our 4 robotic systems, their specifications and their requirements. As well as started our robotic and inspection technology development with great success. We have also made some bold decisions with PETROBOT’s direction and learnt lessons towards the development and operation of robotic inspection tools within our industry. In addition, we had a positive response from our 3rd month review with the EU, and we all worked hard to incorporate the feedback that was provided to us. I believe we deliver a great series of products that are significantly needed in our industry.


We have gelled as a team, and formed strong links between all of the people involved in PETROBOT. We are promoting PETROBOT through many different dissemination channels, with a new social media presence on LinkedIn (don’t forget to join), and an upcoming revamp of our website. We have also presented at several different international conferences and events to further promote PETROBOT into the industry; all with great success.

I would like to thank all of you for the hard work that you have given PETROBOT in the past year, in the various roles as GA or EB member, financial or contractual support staff, and a special thank you to the Executive Board and the daily support team for their ongoing support over the last year in managing this project. We couldn’t have had the successes that we have had during our 1st year without each and every member of the PETROBOT team.

I am extremely excited about our journey ahead.

Kind regards, and enjoy our 1st Birthday,

Sieger Terpstra

PETROBOT Coordinator
