Buried pipelines are subject to external corrosion caused by the soil environment. External coating and cathodic protection systems are used to protect the pipelines as part of corrosion integrity management.
Both CP and pipeline coating systems need to be monitored to avoid malfunctions, the beginning of corrosion, or even worse; a leak on a weak spot of the pipeline.
Our Pipeline Management team specializes in cathodic protection and non-destructive coating survey techniques. Moreover, our own PIMS software called PRIMS, enables full analysis of your cathodic protection system and coatings.
Visualize critical pipeline locations or inadequate CP systems so you can perform proper maintenance activities.
Cathodic protection surveys
We provide ON-potential data logging as a basic survey, ON/OFF potential data logging such as 24h measurements and Close Interval Potential (CIP) surveys. The status and function of your CP system can be tracked and documented in our Pipeline Integrity Management Software PRIMS.
Non-destructive coating survey techniques
Our inspectors specialize in Direct Current Voltage Gradient (DCVG) Survey, Pearson surveys (ACVG), impressed current measurements or Pipeline Current Mapping (PCM).
CP analysis with Pipeline Integrity Management Software
Track and document the status and function of the cathodic protection system with our PRIMS software application.
View and analyze trends and highlight any deficiencies. Combine standard CP data effortlessly (in PCA module) with DCVG, ACVG, CIPS and ILI data to get insight in the physical condition of your pipeline and coating.
