The 2-day seminar on "In-line inspection of transmission pipelines" started directly after the 8th Pipeline Technology Conference on 21 March 2013. Some of the international ptc delegates from Saudi Arabia, Libya, Switzerland and Germany made use of the opportunity to stay for two more days in Hannover in order to go further into details and to meet some potential future business partners. The two lecturers Dr. Michael Beller and Dr. Konrad Reber gave a comprehensive overview on the technical backgrounds, latest ILI technologies in the market, reporting and defect assessment. One of the participant summed up the seminar as "an excellent basic course in ILI-inspections. I recommend this to everybody working in the pipeline integrity business." Each participant received a certificate at the end of the seminar. Upcoming Pipeline Technology Conferences will feature more seminars that will cover all aspects for an extended life-cycle of pipelines.
First ptc seminar on ILI attended by 16 international participants - more specialized seminars will follow
