Across all disciplines
It is clear from the description of an ECA project that competences are required in the areas of welding, stress analysis and also materials testing. In the Applus+ RTD pipeline department, it has long been the desire to perform ECA directly for clients. By performing the ECA we could determine the acceptance criteria, giving the company an advantage in being able to deploy new NDT technologies. Advanced NDT techniques provides more accurate results and show clients smaller defects, which cause an argument with pipeline contractors regarding repair rate while these imperfections do not affect the pipelines fitness for service. In such cases more intelligence acceptance criteria are beneficial to the client.
Facing up to the challenge
For the project, stress analysis and engineering analysis were performed by Applus+ RTD’s recent acquisition Kiefner, in Columbus, Ohio. On the other side, material testing for the project was carried out at the Applus+ Laboratories. Like this, to ensure the success of the project, all activities had to be co-ordinated, and documents and materials sent to locations in the five countries involved. It is a testament to the commitment of employees of all companies involved that everything went without a hitch.
