Suppliers Pull Together to Host Successful Demonstration Event


Five Leading Oil and Gas Suppliers teamed up to host a practical demonstration day of specialist equipment and capabilities for pipework healthcare and corrosion management and welcomed over 100 delegates.


The inaugural event, hosted by leading rope access firm, AquaTerra, was held at their bespoke facilities in Kintore where they showcased their own access systems along with working demonstrations from fellow suppliers Pinovo, Acotec, Furmanite and SAIS.


While some of the tools and techniques shown on the day have been successfully operating for some time, others are relatively new to the market and each company showcased practical demonstrations to give delegates a ‘hands on’ feel for the capabilities available.


Speaking about the event Managing Director, Pete Robinson, said: “We’re absolutely delighted to have hosted this event and brought together a range of technical experts who, collectively, could give an overview of a truly integrated service for pipe work healthcare and corrosion management.


From  radiography corrosion monitoring to inspection robots, specialist coatings and composite solutions, it’s hoped our event can bring some ideas and insights for our clients when considering support options on their current and future work scopes.’


Along with demonstrations, presentations from each of the companies were running throughout the day giving further insight into the skills and capabilities of each company and their service offerings.


The event saw the coming together of five service supply companies; AquaTerra, Pinovo, Acotec, SAIS and Furmanite.
