PAINTING INSPECTIONS

We offer comprehensive painting inspections, including supplier plants, final inspections during the painting process, and customer representation during production. Certified inspectors conduct our inspections, covering field and laboratory conditions to international standards (NORSOK M-501, ISO, ASME, ASTM, NACE, SSPC, AWS, API). We help protect structures against corrosion by ensuring the effective selection of protective paint coatings.

1

Surface preparation, including assessment of cleanliness, roughness, salinity, and dust; preparation of joints and edges.

2

Control during the application of paint coatings: weather conditions, pot life of paints, laying materials, mixing proportions, paint temperature, Wet Film Thickness (WFT)

3

Final inspection includes non-destructive methods such as visual inspection, measurement of Dry Film Thickness (DFT), colour, and gloss, and destructive methods that check the coating’s tightness, hardness, and adhesion using x-cut/cross-cut/pull-off methods.

ELECTRICAL INSPECTIONS

Performed by experienced and certified electrical inspectors, they include general electrical inspections of machines and devices, ATEX compliance inspections, participation in FAT testing, final inspections and pre-shipment electrical inspections and review of final documentation.

AUDITS OF MANUFACTURERS AND SUBCONTRACTORS

We conduct comprehensive audits of production plants and support our customers in selecting new sub-suppliers. Our activities focus on verifying the qualifications of the plant and staff in accordance with the required standards, assessing infrastructure and equipment in terms of customer needs, controlling the level of product quality, and assessing production capabilities.

Our experienced team of auditors, certified as lead auditors, guarantees a complete picture of the supplier’s potential, especially in welding, corrosion protection, assembly, and processing.

We also conduct preliminary audits diagnosing the company’s condition before implementing the system, and our activities include creating, verifying, and updating procedures, forms, and system records to achieve optimal system effects.

We ensure comprehensive audits, combining both system and technical audits.

VISUAL INSPECTION WITH A BORESCOPE

We carry out video borescope inspections in hard-to-reach and dark places. These are usually the insides of closed profiles, pipes, or main transmissions of wind turbines. They allow for a thorough inspection without dismantling a given element. The following can be assessed: welding imperfections, the extent of any damage, corrosion defects, deposits, and the presence of foreign bodies inside. We document the inspection results digitally through photographs or video recordings. Our certified visual inspection inspectors conduct inspections according to the ISO 9712 standard using professional borescopes.
