The agreement will see Applus RTD continue to supply inspection and integrity management services at this Refinery, located in Victoria, for a three-year period commencing January 2016.
Applus RTD has had a full time presence at this major Victorian Refinery for 17 years and believes it was successful in winning this agreement due to its specific and market leading technical expertise in a wide range of relevant services.
A total of 15 dedicated staff will work on the contract supported by Applus RTD global resources.
The agreement will encompass Applus RTD’s key offerings including conventional and advanced Non-Destructive Testing (NDT), rope access and inspection engineering.
A number of Applus RTD proprietary inspection techniques will be utilized in fulfilling this contract, including recently the launched RTD Plant Master technology, which is a permanently installed ultrasonic wall thickness monitoring system. Ultrasonic techniques for inspection underneath piping and vessel supports will be utilized and in addition, Applus RTD will employ greater use of remote video assessments and examinations based on past inspection history.
Cameron Waters, Applus RTD Regional Director Asia Pacific, commented: “We are thrilled to have been re-awarded the contract at the refinery. Having worked closely with the refinery team for many years we have a clear understanding of the requirements to allow Applus RTD to deliver in the most effective manner."
“We are delighted that our market leading position has been recognized and our long standing working partnership with this major Victorian Refinery will continue.”
