OMS adds more qualified weld inspectors to its ranks

Author : J GALE

08 February 2011

Pipe measurement specialist Optical Metrology Services (OMS) Ltd has further expanded its capability to offer comprehensive weld inspection services to its clients. The company has added a further two full time CSWIP-qualified weld inspectors to the team.

CSWIP is an internationally recognised mark of competence for people engaged in welding and/or inspection related jobs in manufacturing, constructing, operating or repairing high integrity welded structures, plant or components.

As well as qualified weld inspectors, OMS offers advanced video and laser-based measurement tools to enable visual inspection and measurement of weld features in difficult to access structures such as pipe line end terminations (PLETs), manifolds, and critical oil & gas pipeline sections. OMS has recently completed an extensive weld inspection scope on the BP Galapagos project.

Richard Gooch, Director of Technology at OMS Ltd commented: "Having more qualified weld inspectors on our team means that in addition to our video and laser-based pipe measurement services, we can support clients by assessing the significance of any weld defects that we discover using these tools. We can then make recommendations as to whether these weld defects should be accepted or rejected aginst the specification."
