Roborigger achieves first international footprint at Shawcor’s pipeline facility

Roborigger recently achieved a huge new milestone by commencing its first international operation at Shawcor’s pipeline facility in Batam, Indonesia.

Shawcor, one of the world’s largest pipe-coating providers in the oil and gas market, identified the use of Roborigger as a means of achieving their safety initiative to remove personnel away from the loads and under crane booms while lifting all loads.

Roborigger founder, Derick Markwell, recently completed the training with Shawcor’s team in Batam for an initial one-month trial of Roborigger at their Kabil Facility.

A Roborigger AR15 15 tonne WLL unit will be used primarily to lift and stack 12 metre long pipe joints with crawler cranes.
