Coating solutions

Axess supplies third-party inspectors, or quality assurance (QA) inspectors, who work directly for the asset owner, or general contractor, and corroborates the findings and measurements of the coating application company. This position acts as a vital check to ensure that no corners are cut and that all aspects of the project are followed to specifications. Not only should this help extend the life of the asset, but it should also help prevent expensive and potentially dangerous consequences from a premature coating’s failure.

For more than a decade we have worked with a variety of surface treatment, coating and insulation systems on subsea pipelines, on- and offshore structures, and piping. We possess in-house resources and equipment available to take on a large variety of testing and inspection works. From developing tailored inspection and test plans (ITP/TIP) to inspection execution, our expertise contributes to ensuring your suppliers’ compliance with standards and specifications.
