  • Bilfinger Salamis UK is an established provider of conventional, advanced and specialist Non-Destructive Testing services to the oil and gas, energy, petrochemical and utilities sectors for onshore and offshore facilities.

    Our experienced teams deliver a full range of conventional, advanced and specialist inspection methods to clients. We hold DNV approval for BS EN ISO 9001, 14001 and BS OSHAS 18001, as well as UKAS approval for BS EN ISO 17020. In addition, we are active members and participants of IRATA, HOIS and BINDT.

    Bilfinger Salamis UK currently has in excess of 250 NDT Technicians delivering conventional, advanced and specialist NDT, utilising the latest equipment and techniques.

    These personnel are supported from our headquarters in Aberdeen, by a dedicated project manager with operational and specialist support from our in-house NDT and rope access technical authorities.

    We have established ourselves at the cutting edge of NDT through investment in specialised equipment and the delivery of industry and client specific training programmes.  We also invest considerable time and resources in the validation of emerging NDT techniques as is evidenced by our collaborations within HOIS.

    Our training and competency programmes ensure that our technicians are fully trained, certificated, and that they exhibit the correct behavioural and safety leadership at all times. 

    Non-Destructive Testing provides inspection data which upon review by competent engineers can help 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.

    Bilfinger Salamis UK provides a full range of conventional testing methods to clients, including:

    • Ultrasonic Testing
    • Radiographic Testing
    • Dye Penetrant Testing
    • Magnetic Particle Testing
    • Eddy Current Testing
    • Visual Inspection using Fibroscope / Boroscope / Video / CCTV
    • Hardness testing
    • Positive Material Identification using an XRF Analyser

    Advanced NDT Validations

    We are continuously developing and evaluating new tools and technology. By focusing on the practical applications of new technology we are better able to qualify the real, tangible benefits of new developments and to deliver best-fit solutions.

    Bilfinger Salamis UK are participating members of the Harwell Offshore Inspection Research and Development Service (HOIS), which is a joint industry initiative involved in developing and improving products, techniques, and procedures. The HOIS programme includes projects within a number of broad theme areas. These include non-intrusive inspection (NII), inspection of inaccessible components, performance evaluation and probability of detection (POD) assessment and modelling. 

    This is achieved by:

    • Developing improved procedures and recommended practices
    • Performing independent evaluation trials to assess techniques and understand benefits and limitations
    • Collaborative development of inspection techniques and inspection technology
    • Provision of an internet-accessible source of information on inspection techniques, both advanced and conventional.

    By working in close partnership with the leading NDT solutions manufacturers, advanced NDT providers and taking an active lead in collaborative research through trade organisations such as HOIS, we can ensure we never compromise on our commitment to provide best-fit solutions, thereby reducing uncertainty, improving confidence and ultimately extending asset life and reducing costs.



    UAV Inspection

  • bilfinger-salamis-rope-access-services-uav-inspection Bilfinger Salamis UAV Inspection UAV Inspection

    Bilfinger is fully CAA-certified, and provides a multi-disciplined inspection team/inspector fully qualified and certified to pilot UAVs in an offshore environment

    Contact
  • The use of unmanned aeriel systems (drones) is established as a leading method of survey, inspection and maintenance of UKCS offshore oil and gas installations.

    Bilfinger Salamis UK ‘s inspection department owns and operates drones, controlled by our qualified pilots, who use them to carry out close visual and thermal inspections in remote and difficult-to-reach areas such as:

    • Flare towers
    • Cranes
    • Drilling derricks
    • Helideck support structures
    • Under deck/splash zone
    • Risers/caissons

    There are strict minimum requirements and regulations for providing a UAS inspection service, both on and offshore for oil and gas industry customers. All UAS operators must obtain the UK Civial Aviation Authority Permission for Commercial Operations accreditation, and all pilots must achieve the CAA Permissions for Aerial Work standard.

    Bilfinger is fully CAA-certified, and provides a multi-disciplined inspection team/inspector fully qualified and certified to pilot UAVs in an offshore environment.

    This allows us to offer a full visual inspection package to our clients.

    Enhanced Safety - Increased Efficiency

    Not only does the use of drones for offshore inspection reduce the risk to staff, but it also saves time, resources and cost. Scaffold and rope access are no longer required as inspection can be carried out from a safe location, reducing any risk to personnel.

    Bilfinger drone technology can be deployed on an ad hoc basis like any other service provider, however, in addition to our ad hoc services, Bilfinger also train our core technicians to become fully competent UAV pilots. Therefore in addition to the advantages that the drone technology provides, Bilfinger can provide all this with the advantages of no additional personnel requirements.

    Bilfinger's drones are piloted by experienced pilots and/or NDT technicians which allows for instant analysis of results, and completion of detailed NDT reports. Our technicians can then carry out work instantly, if required.
