- Success StoriesSolution Brief - Out of the Box Engineering Solution Saves Months of Time
Engineers, field technicians and NDT experts collaborated to find a suitable technique based on the engineer's unique idea which saved time, cost and increased reliability.
- Success StoriesSolution Brief - Emergency Engineering Expertise Restores Critical Asset to Operation
During a turnaround at a gas plant, pressure testing was performed on a sulphur condenser’s (the “vessel”) shell side. The vessel was accidentally overpressured to 5.3 times its MAWP (maximum allowable working pressure). A new vessel would have cost over a million dollars and would have taken over 6 months to be built. Acuren performed Level 3 API 579-ASME FFS-1 Fitness for Service, followed by different NDE techniques, hardness testing and strain gauging during a pressure test. We worked very closely with the regulator and the customer to eventually bring the vessel back to service.
- Success StoriesAcuren Helps Food Industry Client Prevent Pipe Leaks
Acuren’s Ammonia System Inspection group helped a food industry giant avoid a possible shutdown. Acuren’s experts were tasked with inspecting the pipes and vessels involved in a 75,000 pound ammonia system in Arkansas. The main concern of every ammonia system is corroded pipe that can risk the safety of employees, surroundings, and efficiency of the plant that could ultimately even cause a shutdown. Acuren’s combined testing solution helps clients avoid these risks while meeting all regulatory compliance.
- Success StoriesUnderside of Bridge Emergency Water Main Repair
There are two 30 inch diameter ¼” wall thickness steel water mains, which run along the underside of the bridge over a river way, that provide major water distribution to the community. The leak locations were difficult to access and on pipe which had an old asbestos coating. Acuren’s engineering and rope access crew provided a safe, economical, and timely repair solution to get the lines back into operating condition.
- Success StoriesVast Network To Complete Extensive Project On Time and Budget
TEI Analytical Services, Acuren’s sister company, inspected an interstate natural gas transmission pipeline of more than 250 miles of 36” diameter pipe to support pipeline transportation infrastructure needs in Ohio, Michigan and Ontario, Canada. Discover how we delivered on time and on budget.
- Success StoriesAcuren’s High Temperature Phased Array Outperforms the Competition
Acuren’s HTPAUT specialist team saved the client an estimated $5,000,000 in costs.
- Success StoriesFlare Stack - Extending Operating Life of Critical Legacy Asset
This oil and gas customer had a 60 year old flare stack with cracking and corrosion that was approaching its end of life. Due to the cracking and corrosion thinning, there was considerable potential for failure for the flare tip and stack pipe. The cost for flare stack replacement was significant and Acuren offered a solution for life extension rather than stack replacement.
- Success StoriesIntegrated Solutions
Acuren integrated solutions are saving our clients time and money. Acuren safely completed a flare tip replacement and coatings project in Ohio at a fraction of the time and at 40% of the cost. The four-week project incorporated Acuren’s Mechanical, Engineering, and Rope Access Industrial Services.
