Turtlebot3 + rpi add-on board

Apologies if this is the wrong place to ask a hardware question, but I figured this would be the place where I'd be most likely to get an answer.

I am looking to buy a stereo camera add-on board for the raspberry pi for use with the Turtlebot3. This is the board in question:

Unfortunately, the add-on board uses GPIO pins 1-6; pins 4 & 6 are already in use (connected to the openCR board). I was wondering if anyone might be able to advise me on whether it is possible to use this board with the Turtlebot, and if so, how I might do this.

Thanks in advance

Seems a rather obvious answer now I know, but the pins in use are to provide power to the RPI. Just needed to get a power bank to power the RPI through the micro USB and can connect the HAT to the GPIO pins.
