Innovation is part of our DNA

Innovation Management

Since inception we have pushed the boundaries of asset integrity management, thinking beyond the status quo. With the transition to renewable energy and focus on sustainability, we provide companies with new approaches to digital technology. We use innovation as an instrument to help businesses create value. We deliver what is needed for safe, cost-efficient and reliable processes.

Through our innovation management services we provide 3rd party assessments of technology for robotic and inspection systems. We have two test facilities to test and validate robotic solutions: Quasset Test Facility in the Netherlands and Quasset Innovation Hub in Houston, Texas. Using the latest and newest trends in technology, we deliver bespoke and scalable solutions for our clients.

Building networks

Quasset is built upon relationships, and building networks is at the core of what we do. Our innovation portfolio includes managing many global and regional joint industry initiatives. We have participated in prominent initiatives subsidized by the European Union including SmartWater4Europe and ReaLNG, as well as the PETROBOT project: a groundbreaking collaboration that brought together the petrochemical and robotics industries, resulting in the creation of the SPRINT Robotics Collaborative, a global, not-for-profit organization that promotes the development and application of inspection and maintenance robotics for capital-intensive infrastructure. Quasset continues to support SPRINT Robotics as central coordinator for the collaborative.

Driving Innovation in the Water Sector

Robotic solutions for water services

Expertise in selecting, testing & validating innovative robotic solutions for smart integrated water services

Robotic solutions for water-intensive industries can lower operational risks and improve safety and efficiency. Labor-intensive tasks can be automated to solve emerging manpower shortages. Quasset helps companies in water-intensive industries identify the potential fit of robotic solutions versus requirements and test solutions for smart integrated water services.

Innovation Management Project

CUI Program

Quasset managed and executed the CUI Program, a four-year initiative on behalf of several major oil & gas companies. The CUI Program was a three-staged, multidisciplinary project aimed at delivering inspection for CUI at a significantly lower cost by leveraging innovative robotic platforms in combination with NDT. In each phase, Quasset joined forces with different industry partners, from end users to technology suppliers and service providers. The different phases included: Robotics for Non-magnetic surfaces, Robotics and NDE trials​, CUI for Robotics, and the CUI Industry Challenge: Next-generation piping robots. ​

PILOTING Project

Quasset is part of PILOTING, a European Horizon 2020 project that focuses on the use of robotic technologies to increase efficiency and quality of inspection and maintenance of aging infrastructures.

The H2020 PILOTING Project includes a fourteen-member consortium to address the challenges the Inspection and Maintenance industry faces. The project works towards advancing the adaptation, integration, and demonstration of robotic solutions in an integrated platform, which will be tested and evaluated in three large-scale pilots: refineries, bridges/viaducts, and tunnels with the involvement of all actors in the value chain.

Quasset’s role in this project includes the development of the I&M Intelligence and Visualization portal (WP5), specification and design of PILOTING I&M robotic-based platform (WP2), and the testing of the systems in the large-scale pilots (WP7).

Quasset Innovation Hub & Quasset Test Facility (QTF)

Quasset Innovation Hub is a central place where companies can co-locate, collaborate and utilize a test facility with real-world assets. Located in Houston, Texas, Quasset Innovation Hub provides a fully-inclusive solution to companies who are driving the industry forward.

Conveniently located near Amsterdam, Quasset Test Facility (QTF) provides the vital bridge between lab environments and real-world application to safely test and validate novel solutions. The 600-square-meter testing facility houses a range of decommissioned assets that serve to test swimming, flying, and crawling robotic systems in a controlled environment.
