FORCE Technology has just invested in a new automated ultrasound system, PipeWIZARD, which is a so-called phased array system. With this system we can now provide an even more efficient service to both our onshore and offshore customers.
The ultrasound system was purchased to service an order placed by Bladt Industries A/S for automated ultrasound inspection of 2,700 welds in accordance with DNV’s Offshore Standard, OS-F101, Submarine Pipeline Systems.
Welding is being carried out by Bladt Industries A/S, so they will end up with a total of 900 finished pipe lengths to be used on a 1,200 kilometre long pipeline, which will carry gas 800 metres below the surface of the sea from the Ormen Lange Field in the North Sea to Nyhamna in Norway.
FORCE Technology’s in-depth knowhow relative to the inspection of such items as gas and oil pipes combined with this new automated ultrasound system, which meets the specific requirements described in DNV Offshore Standard, OS-F101, Submarine Pipeline Systems, is setting new standards for our service to onshore and offshore customers.
