Preventing pipeline failure?
Inspecting the UNinspected
CONDITION DETERMINATION AND PIPELINE LIFE EXPECTANCY
In a modern asset management organization authentication techniques are used to validate policy into practice. Without these techniques it is impossible to have grip on the performance and future failure of assets.
Inspection techniques are an essential link within the asset management cycle. By using our inspection techniques we contribute to operational excellence and a structural decrease of your capital costs.
INLINE INSPECTION (ILI)
Inline Inspection (ILI) ensures that every centimeter of the pipeline will be examined. By making use of various techniques and sensors we are able to detect leaks, provide insight into pipeline location and possible failure mechanisms. The techniques used are scientifically validated.
The Acquarius I stands for a versatile tool that provides a customized application tailored to your specific situation.
