Vertech understands that bulk storage tanks are assets of both strategic and operational importance for companies across a large range of industry sectors. Our specialised range of services assist our customers in maintaining their inspection, maintenance and repair schedules to ensure maximum availability while complying with Australian Standards and EPA requirements.

Our clients benefit from our team of experienced API 653 tank inspectors and engineers who can evaluate the inspection data, perform remnant life calculations, design weld repairs and prepare weld procedures. From our years of experience, we know that every tank is different and have their own unique factors to consider.

There are many different variables that come into play when designing a repair procedure such as the specific gravity of the stored product, the age of the tank, the construction material that was used etc. and that's why we prepare our repair documents and procedures according to API-650 & API-653 requirements. We also tailor our repair procedures specifically to suit your needs based on your industry's operational requirements.

Welding & Materials Engineering

Vertech are of the firm belief that a properly produced weld should be as strong as the materials that it is used to join. Just as importantly, welding procedures that identify parameters, sequences and essential variables need to be prepared and followed precisely or the welded joint can become the weakest part of the structure or component. In many cases, weld procedures must be tailored to a specific situation. Instances like welding new materials to the older materials that have been in service are often a challenge, but our team of experts can provide a carefully planned solution.

Our highly experienced welding and materials engineers provide various types of welding procedure qualifications that support procedure qualification records. These documents are produced for clients in many different industries such as oil & gas maritime maritime and mining.

Advanced NDT is the best solution for a complete inspection of components and materials as it can reveal internal and or external flaws and defects. With the auxiliary support of Sonomatic, we provide a wide range of advanced NDT systems including Alternating Current Field Measurement (ACFM), Corrosion Under Insulation Inspection (CUI) with Eddyfi LYFT and array of proprietary advance inspection systems.


Vertech was a pioneer of industrial rope access in Australia. We imported the first engineered decking systems to the Asia Pacific region and designed and installed the first offshore safety netting and tension netting systems in the region. Being a holistic access provider, we are recognised industry-wide for providing the right access systems for each situation.


Piping and pressure vessels are a critical part of a plant, requiring regular inspections to ensure their integrity & safety. We understand that these inspections are very complex and often dependent upon many variables. Our highly-skilled, competent and experienced engineers to will manage the plant's integrity and ensure the necessary and statutory In-Service Inspections (ISI) are precisely conducted and reported.


Vertech apply Advanced-RDVI as an integrated solution with a focus on pre-planning and specialist execution packages to deliver high levels of data & results that can not only be used for pressure equipment sign off, but also for post inspection analysis, risk reviews and process operational requirements. Our services and capability in RDVI encompass Front end engineering & design (FEED), Operational planning & reviews, Onsite execution services and Advanced RDVI.
