While our NDT techs have performed countless inspections across many industries, on the 17th November, a team of Vertech’s NDT and rope access technicians headed off to a truly unique scope, inspecting an art installation in the centre of Perth city (pictures above).
Located on Nash St in the Perth CBD, the structure is truly an amazing piece of art, but like anything subjected to harsh outdoor conditions, it needs to be regularly inspected for stress, cracks and corrosion.
Our NDT technician utilized Eddy Current on the weld attachment points which overcame the need to remove the paint for the weld inspection. We then performed a visual inspection on the wire rope cables and associated fittings.
What made this project special was that the entire inspection was carried out by one of our specialised access teams using rope access.
Rope access overcame the need for expensive scaffolding and inspection time was considerably reduced without compromising quality. This all led to a better outcome for the client through efficiencies and cost savings.
Amazing work team!
