The Use of HIP to Improve Safety and Innovation Offshore
Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) technology has been used for many years in the Oil & Gas industry, to close porosity in cast products and to produce near net shape components from metal powders. More recently, additive manufacturing is entering this space, and HIP is a vital component of the supply chain to ensure material performance for the most critical applications.
EPMA has decided to place the annual HIP seminar in Oslo this time, to bring key industry players together with an aim develop dialogue around improving offshore technology and safety.
The 2020 HIP seminar is titled “The use of HIP to improve safety and innovation offshore” and will be hosted at Energy Valley (Research Center) in Oslo, Norway, on 10-11 March 2020. The seminar will feature presentations from industry majors as well as a site visit of DNV-GL and the opportunity to network and discuss the future of the HIP market.
The seminar will be of interest to end users and designers as well as technical and managerial personnel in the HIP Industry.
