Based on the experience and expertise in projects of this kind, SGS will apply Ultrasonic Testing and Magnetic Particle Testing, both NDT methods, for the investigation of the steel structure and welds. For Ultrasonic Testing SGS makes use of sound waves with short wavelengths and high frequencies to identify flaws and measure any variations in the thickness of the steel structure to detect corrosion.
