UK-based worldwide leader in testing, inspection and certification services hosted its first Aberdeen open day this week showcasing its ultrasonic (UT) inspection technique, IWEX.

During the event, other technology companies also demonstrated a range of equipment focused on supporting the industry with inspection services.

With over 23,000 employees worldwide across 70 countries, Applus+ UK has a team of 11 in Aberdeen and a further 420 employees throughout the UK supporting sectors including oil and gas, petrochemical, power generation, utilities, nuclear, renewables and aviation.

For the last 10 years, Applus+ successfully entered the new construction market for girth weld inspection with its own developed 3D full matrix capture technology: IWEX.

The Portable IWEX system consists of a wide variety of inspections software to be used at various (sometimes hard-to-reach) locations and can be easily transported from one location to another, which is a huge advantage.

Managing director of Applus+ UK Darren Ghazaleh said: “We were delighted to host our first open day at our Aberdeen facility – the team, our suppliers and I showcased the technologies and solutions we provide our clients to enhance inspection services.

“Being able to have our technical and sales team on-hand to show the solutions we offer the industry, especially during a time when so many organisations need to focus on their environmental performance, was really valuable for all.”

Applus+ UK offers a complete portfolio of solutions for a range of industry challenges, including asset integrity management to statuary compliance-based inspection.
