CBT joined the U.S. offshore oil and natural gas industry’s 2019 API Offshore Safe Lifting Conference & Expo for the first time this year. The event took place on September 24th & 25th, 2019 at the Westin Houston Memorial City, Houston, Texas. With the main theme of “Safe Lifting and Growing Technology,” we were anxious to showcase how we have implemented a refinery of the future that encompasses equipment/assets, utilities, processes, people and safety/environmental hazards. We were at booth #15 where we showcased the work we’ve done at Texmark Chemicals and how the technologies and concepts used in this “smart refinery” can relate to many other industry verticals. We had our RealWear hands-free, ruggedized Android tablets for industrial workers (the HMT-1s), as well as many other exciting technologies to demonstrate. It was a pleasure to join industry experts, including representatives from the BSEE and Coast Guard, as they shared their experiences.
