From time to time, failures occur, and the process of understanding them is integral to preventing recurrence in the future.

You may be a port authority or operator, a ship builder or ship repairer, managing waterways or operating a ferry company. Whatever the challenges you face, the unique atmosphere of water, steel structures and different materials to be used, stored or transported lead to a risk of corrosion and potential for failures that could have disastrous consequences.

 

From time to time, failures occur, and the process of understanding them is integral to preventing recurrence in the future.

 

While we undertake statutory inspections of equipment for clients, we also work with them to monitor the condition of business critical assets on an ongoing basis, enabling prevention of failures and reducing the risk of potentially dangerous or costly occurrences.

Once the condition of assets is known, then we can assist clients in the prioritising of and undertaking of proactive and preventative maintenance and monitoring, through a systematic process of inspecting, testing, understanding, repairing and where appropriate, making recommendations on replacement (in terms of design and timing).

 

Our unique expertise in the fields of inspection, materials engineering, corrosion engineering and mechanical engineering enables our clients to understand the condition of their plant and equipment at any moment in time, and manage the identified risks accordingly.

 

We have helped operators in understanding failures of drive impellors, in explaining lock gate failures, in assessing the condition and working life of materials handling assets and other infrastructure, as well as many other areas.

Marine storage – from storing fuels and oils, to hazardous chemicals, bulk foodstuffs or abrasive dry materials, tanks come under unseen stress and strain, and benefit from regular inspection.


Shipping & Ports
 
– corrosion, fatigue and stress due to handling heavy loads can cause potential failure in lifting equipment, turbines, engines, lock gates and many other items. We help clients anticipate the problems and therefore avoid costly downtime.
