29th August 2013 – TSC, the UK based and industry experts on the design, manufacture and supply of non-destructive testing and stress measurement instrumentation incorporating Alternating Current Field Measurement ACFM® technology and LBO, who operate in the non-destructive testing (NDT) services sector and provide services and turn-key projects to the oil and gas industry both offshore and onshore, have agreed to work together and supply specialist NDT inspection services for operations in the splash zone area of an offshore platform environment.
Under the terms of the agreement it is LBO’s intention to deploy TSC “ACFM®” sensors on LBO specialist equipment that is designed to deploy custom made access tools using a traditional ROV robotic arm which is remotely operated from a control cabin on deck and specifically used in the offshore platform environment commonly known as the “splash zone area”.
Both companies will supply onshore engineering support and offshore operations personnel, from first customer contact through to the submission of the final report and analysis of the data, thereby ensuring the customer is working directly with the people who actually design, manufacture and fully understand the technology being used for such complex operations.
“I’m pleased TSC and LBO have agreed to work together and jointly offer this specialist service to our customers”, explains Dr David Topp, TSC Managing Director, “The relationship gives our customer’s access to ACFM®” NDT inspection tools and world class deployment technology that allows NDT inspection in the splash zone area to take place safely and provide inspection results that only ACFM®” can achieve.
