Over a three-year period, Vertech was contracted to manage the inspection and compliance for all lifting equipment and drill handling tools through our VIIPER management database. Additional work was awarded for comprehensive dropped object surveys & remediation programs, proof load testing & recertification of fixed lifting items, derrick surveys, crane inspections and general rope access maintenance activities.
Offshore Drilling – SEMI SUB Management
At Height Inspection
Vertech provided multi skilled personnel across all Diamond offshore inspection and maintenance campaigns adding significant benefits in safety, cost, and time. Our highly experienced rope access teams conducted DROPS inspections, API 4G derrick inspections, NATA and AS compliant Lifting equipment inspection, top drive system (TDS) and API 2C crane inspections.
Our multi skilled NDT inspectors provided a suite of NDT methods including Magnetic particle testing of drill handling tools (DHT’s) and any indications found by Eddy current. Eddy current inspection (ECI) of welds on cranes, structures and other area were removing the coating wasn’t practicable or necessary.
Ultrasonic testing (UT) was conducted on the hull structures, piping systems, deck plating, crane booms and other areas required for defect sizing through shear wave UT.
- Magnetic Particle Inspection (MPI)
- Dye Penetrant Testing (DPI)
- Eddy Current Inspection (ECI)
- Ultrasonic Thickness Testing (UT)
- Dimensional Verification & Inspection
- Proof Load Testing (PLT)
Through providing multi-disciplined, high mobility crews we were often able to respond to emergent requirements on the drilling assets to support maintenance or specialist maintenance activities. Embedding specialist trades such as IRATA Level 3 Supervisors, Mechanical Fitters, Riggers & Scaffolders or electricians was of huge value to these campaigns as we could respond to scopes such as:
- Rope access scaffolding
- Electrical Cable pulling
- Hazardous Areas Inspection
- Coating touch ups
- Sheave replacements
- Hydraulic Hoe replacements
- Secondary retention devices fitted
- End stops replaced on Monorails
- Crane preventative maintenance
