Exova has been awarded a contract with McDermott to deliver a range of testing services in support of McDermott’s structural and pipeline production welding facility.
Working from its Abu Dhabi laboratory, with support from Al Futtaim Exova Metallurgy in Dubai, Exova will provide testing services for weld procedure qualification, welder qualification, coatings procedure approval and component forensic analysis.
Exova will conduct various tests to provide the qualifications, including mechanical, fracture mechanics, and sour gas corrosion testing, as well as coatings and failure analysis.
“McDermott recently won several offshore fabrication contracts and we’re pleased to be supporting them to deliver quality pipeline production,” Neil Hold, UAE Operations Manager at Exova, said. “Our Abu Dhabi laboratory has the capabilities and capacity to provide the required technically demanding qualifications on time, while managing McDermott’s high volume of activity.”
