Successful competition for the NTNU Drillbotics Team

After starting the work in august 2020 it was finally time for the international Drillbotics competition.

The competition started out with an interesting Q&A-session, where the Team were able to showcase what they have learned throughout this year. After that it was time to prove their design through a drilling demo with respect to the committees requirements.

The drilling was so successful that the committee requested a «show-run» to maximize the performance of the rig!

This run surprised the committee by drilling through a 60cm rock in 6 minutes and achieving an inclination of 35 degrees.

The competition was hectic, but very fun and the Team thought it was good to be able to show the results of very much hard work. The final scoreboard will be presented in a month or two, but we have our fingers crossed.

The team would once again like to thank BRU21 and Equinor for making it possible to participate in the competition.
