We always want to reduce operational disruption, reduce costs and deliver assurance that equipment is safe.

Do unexpected shutdowns put you under pressure?

When shutdowns happen unexpectedly, the pressure is on to get things up and running as soon as possible. There are a lot of factors that can affect how quickly site operation can resume. A lot is dependent on how quickly contractors can find technicians to complete the work required. 

We were delighted to be able to respond quickly when an offshore oil platform found themselves suffering an unexpected shutdown. The platform found us online when they realised their current contractors were unable to meet their needs.

Responsive testing that delivers assurance that your equipment is safe.
