Complex Inspection and Testing Services for Kuwait Petroleum Europoort (KPE) in Rotterdam, the Netherlands

Complex Inspection and Testing Services for Kuwait Petroleum Europoort (KPE) in Rotterdam, the Netherlands

SGS, the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company, was awarded a contract to provide complex inspection and testing services for about 100 underground road crossings of over 1000 pipelines, varying in diameter from 1” to 42’’, in the port of Rotterdam, the Netherlands, at the Kuwait Petroleum Europort (KPE) in May 2011.

During the entire contract, scheduled from June 2011 to December 2011, SGS will perform Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) Services, including Visual Inspection, Ultrasonic Testing, Guided Wave Inspection and Radiographic Testing, as well as Project Management Services.

With Visual Inspection, SGS will inspect the road crossings of pipelines for poor welding, surface defects, corrosion pits, degradation, blockages and foreign material by applying specialized equipment, which penetrates into obscure places. Moreover, SGS will carry out Ultrasonic Testing in order to measure the wall thickness of underground pipelines.

Furthermore, skilled SGS operators will apply Guided Wave Inspection, also called Long-Range Ultrasonic Testing (LRUT), and Radiographic Testing to assess the condition and reliability of the piping in an effective way and detect any discontinuities at an early stage. In addition, SGS will support the client with its complex requirements with Project Management Services in terms of coordination of other contractors for insulation and civil works.

With its extensive experience and competence, SGS helps the client to evaluate the condition of its underground road crossings of refinery pipelines and makes suggestions for their maintenance, in order to ensure that defects and discontinuities will be detected before they reach a critical size and consequently result in severe damage and expensive corrective actions.
