More than 50 IRO members travelled to Assen on 5 October to attend the members meeting.
Resato International was our host, from their 'new' office and production site.
A recurring phenomenon is the short pitches of new IRO members; in this case of Vonk, Kwint Offshore, Sandvik and Rosen Europe.
That the region has a lot to offer, we could notice.
First of all, Ton Driessen from Resato welcomed us into the world of high pressure technology and water jet cutting. Fascinating to see what you can do with 4000 Bar.
Rob Bolding of Astava in Meppel revealed what an extensive product portfolio (> 3,500) Astava has in the field of instruments for the Oil & Gas sector.
After that, Alex Mulder from Stiko in Roden seamlessly continued with a pitch on their assortment of measuring equipment.
Marleen Lenting of SIRI Marine in Appingedam closed the plenary session. SIRI Marine specializes in movements, and in particular the measurement and monitoring of movements and their impact.
She launched a scoop: together with Mocean Offshore, they have developed a Motion Forecasting Service, which is now a pilot.
After a tour at the impressive Resato complex, the meeting ended with network drinks.
Many thanks to our Resato hosts.
