- Mechanical inspectors are certified to CWB Level 2 minimum or to the equivalent CWI inspector.
The inspection process during fabrication of pipeline equipment varies greatly depending on the type of equipment manufactured, and service conditions. The ITP will determine the level of inspection, which can be defined at the pre inspection meeting including: regular intermediate inspections, final inspection, and review of vendor data books, to ensure conformity of the product throughout the whole fabrication and manufacturing processes. We can also offer Coating inspection as we do have NACE certified inspectors in our Coating Division.
Whatever project we are on, we give full support to our client for minimizing operating costs, minimizing risks, reducing failures, and determining integrity and extending the life-cycle of their product.
