Applus+ has been awarded a contract for the provision of non-destructive testing and inspection services by a leading Canadian operator with facilities throughout Canada. The scope of work entails turnkey delivery of a complete portfolio of integrity assurance services including conventional NDT, advanced NDT, code compliance inspections, rope access services, thermography, and other related support activities. The inspections will assess the integrity of various refining facility assets including pipelines, storage tanks, terminal piping, and pressure vessels.
Applus+ technicians will inspect the assets using a variety of conventional and advanced inspection techniques including Radiography, Magnetic Particle Testing, Dye Penetrant Testing, Ultrasonic Testing, and Visual Inspection. Inspection will be performed both on-stream (in-service), and off-stream (out-of-service), and in some cases deployed via Rope Access.
Alongside the delivery of conventional NDT services, Applus+ will also perform advanced Ultrasonic Testing including Phased Array Ultrasonic Testing (PAUT), Time of Flight Diffraction (TOFD), and Guided Wave Ultrasonic Inspection. Ultrasonic Testing uses high-frequency sound energy to perform examinations and take measurements. Ultrasonic Testing can inspect for dimensional measurements, thickness, material characterisation, flaw detection, and more. Ultrasonic Testing can be used at any point in the life-cycle of an asset or component, from inspection of plates, forgings, castings or welded components to in-service corrosion monitoring.
Applus+ is recognised as an NDT provider of choice in the region, providing its customers with excellent service and quality results. Through its extensive facility inspection experience, Applus+ has developed the ability to fulfill its customers’ needs for high-volume NDT capacity for ongoing maintenance inspections, turnarounds, and project-based scopes, minimising downtime, mitigating schedule risk, and delivering overall value to our clients’ projects.
Applus+ is an ideal partner for owner-operator companies and contractors requiring specialised NDT and inspection support.
