APPLUS RTD To Provide Testing to Ultra-Deep Water KAOMBO DevelopmentApplus RTD 77, Rotterdam, Netherlands
Applus RTD, the global leader in the provision of integrity technology services, has been awarded a contract from Heerema Marine Contractors as part of the Kaombo development offshore Angola.
As part of the largest ultra-deep water SURF (subsea, umbilicals, risers, flowlines) development, Applus RTD will provide non-destructive testing for offshore flowlines and risers, as well as testing onshore multi jointing tie-ins using its RTD Rotoscan AUT (automated ultrasonic testing) Phased Array System.
The project is due to commence for Applus RTD in Q1 2015 and will start with an extensive AUT qualification program according to the Total specification.
Iain Light, CEO Applus RTD: “To be aligned to such a technically advanced project such as the Kaombo development is a massive opportunity for Applus RTD. Our technology and expertise has been selected due to our high success rate and the Rotoscan Phased System is qualified by both DNV and Total. This new project will only allow us to further enhance our non-destructive testing offering, and in particular, our subsea capability.”
The Applus RTD divisions involved in the project are Applus RTD The Netherlands and Applus RTD USA - Houston and Applus+ Velosi. The project will take place both on- and offshore in Angola.
