Bilfinger has established itself at the cutting edge of NDT through continuous investment in specialised equipment and the delivery of industry- and client-specific training programmes. Bilfinger also invests considerable time and resources in the validation of emerging NDT techniques as is evidenced by our successful collaborations with HOIS and OGTC.
Our bespoke training and competency assurance programmes ensure that our technicians are fully trained and certificated, and that they exhibit the correct behavioural and safety leadership at all times: we never compromise on integrity or safety.
Non-Destructive Testing provides inspection data which upon review by competent engineers can be used to determine if a component or system is showing signs of degradation and is suitable for continued use.
Periodic Testing (Monitoring) using NDT enables component condition and deterioration to be monitored allowing intervention prior to component or system failure.
