Non-destructive testing

We provide non-destructive testing of components with the advantages of aerial surveys. Through evaluating the integrity of numerous components we can then provide specific advice for maintenance programs. These inspections ensure the maintenance of quality and safety levels in infrastructures and detailed information on the operation of the entire plant, enabling information to be gathered for preventive measures to be taken to correct any deviation from component operating parameters. This inspection method is useful in all phases of the installation life cycle: design, component manufacture, installation and operation.

The most significant part of our work is based on checks made while plants are operational, providing maintenance analyses of component deterioration during operation.

At this stage we carry out high-level inspections to ensure safe and reliable performance. 

Non-destructive testing enables: 

  • Monitoring of the integrity of the infrastructure
  • Preventative detection of faults and irregularities to avoid costly damage
  • Savings in terms of time and money with quick and effective inspection
