Asset Integrity Management (AIM)

Asset integrity management is an essential part of operations for most companies.  

You want to get the most out of your assets, and we want to help you achieve that safely and cost-effectively. 

But sometimes organising the different outside contractors to arrive at the right time, in the right order, can be tricky, leading to protracted operational disruption and wasted money.  

Our comprehensive Asset Integrity Management service (AIM) allows you to save money by outsourcing your asset integrity management to our experienced AIM team. We oversee everything – from organising maintenance teams to conducting NDT inspections to creating your Fit for Service report.
