Our UK based NDT & Inspection team, led by Stephen Chambers, carry out major on and offshore inspection methods for aging turbines or turbines that are new in service. Our catalogue of inspection methods ranges far and wide, and among others we can mention:
𝗘𝗱𝗱𝘆 𝗰𝘂𝗿𝗿𝗲𝗻𝘁 𝘁𝗲𝘀𝘁𝗶𝗻𝗴 (𝗘𝗧)
A method performed on mainframes and turbine towers that makes us capable of testing issues without the need to remove paint to identify flaws in metal surfaces and welds.
Non-destructive testing which can detect surface and subsurface defects of the welds, used post ET if any indications found with the latter method.
By sending ultrasonic waves through a structure or material, we can detect potential flaws in key safety points in e.g., ladder welds and platforms.
𝗣𝗵𝗮𝘀𝗲𝗱 𝗔𝗿𝗿𝗮𝘆 𝗨𝗹𝘁𝗿𝗮𝘀𝗼𝗻𝗶𝗰 𝗧𝗲𝘀𝘁𝗶𝗻𝗴 (𝗣𝗔𝗨𝗧)
An advanced NDT technique that detects defects in metal and composites and provides us with accurate and detailed information about the depth, size, and severity of the defect.
𝗢𝘃𝗲𝗿𝗮𝗹𝗹 𝘃𝗶𝘀𝘂𝗮𝗹 𝗶𝗻𝘀𝗽𝗲𝗰𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻
The inspection is performed on both aging turbines and turbines that are new in service, using rope access or drones to inspect e.g., the blades of the turbine, main structures, and internal frames. If flaws are detected, further inspections and solutions can be implemented to prevent down time of assets.
