Local presence, local support: UK team of highly trained inspectors

Our UK based NDT & Inspection team, led byย 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:ย 
๐—˜๐—ฑ๐—ฑ๐˜† ๐—ฐ๐˜‚๐—ฟ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐˜ ๐˜๐—ฒ๐˜€๐˜๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด (๐—˜๐—ง)

A method performed on mainframes and turbine towers that makes us capable of testing issuesย withoutย the need to removeย paint to identify flaws inย metal surfaces and welds.ย 

๐— ๐—ฎ๐—ด๐—ป๐—ฒ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ฐ ๐˜๐—ฒ๐˜€๐˜๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด (๐— ๐—ง)

Non-destructive testing which can detect surface and subsurface defects of the welds,ย usedย postย ETย if any indications found with the latter method.ย

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.ย

An advanced NDT technique that detectsย defectsย in metal and composites andย provides us withย accurate and detailedย information about the depth,ย size, and severity ofย the defect.ย

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 andย solutions can be implemented to prevent down time of assets.ย
