27.-28. May the ROP project meeting was hosted by Statoil at the Pipeline Repair System (PRS) base at Killingøy outside Haugesund.
It is truly impressive to see the huge dimensions of the sophisticated equipment that is operating at the sea bottom during pipeline repair and an eye opener with respect to the innovation and high technology level that these tools represent.
In the hyperbaric welding chamber (in the group picture) welding down to dephts of 4000 meters can be simulated! This is unique on world basis.
