TÜV Rheinland provides ADGAS continuous engineering support for oil and gas projects at Das Island
A client’s award – TÜV Rheinland Middle East recently received a certificate of recognition for their consistent engineering support and excellent customer service during 2015. ADGAS Senior Executive and Vice President of Supply Chain Management, Alawi Saleh, signed the certificate expressing their gratitude. TÜV Rheinland Middle East’s involvement with ADGAS primarily focuses on maintaining plant integrity, creating base line inspection data and certifying all lifting appliances on Das Island.
A subsidiary of the ADNOC group operating on Das Island, ADGAS is a respected name on the list of international TÜV Rheinland oil and gas clients. TÜV Rheinland Middle East has provided ADGAS with high-level services for plant integrity over the past years, in addition to the inspection and certification of all Das Island lifting equipment and appliances. In March 2016, TÜV Rheinland supervised and co-executed a major turnaround project conducting in-service inspections on various industrial assets such as boilers, pressurized equipment, distillation columns, heat exchangers and piping systems for LNG trains. The company’s experts also provided mechanical integrity assessment during a major shutdown. More than 120 engineers, inspectors and non-destructive testing (NDT) specialists oversaw the entire management and execution of NDT activities including supervision, inspection and validation.
TÜV Rheinland is proud of these achievements and considers this prestigious award a testament to its commitment to provide high-quality performance and excellent safety records. Executive Vice President Industrial Services, Dr. Hans Berg explains, “Our ability to offer plant integrity services including inspection planning and execution, supervision of the entire assessment work as well as final evaluation of the fitness for service is an essential part of TÜV Rheinland´s Asset Integrity Management (AIM). We are committed to further leveraging the supply of high-quality asset integrity services with global delivery capability.”
Andreas Höfer, Executive Vice President Asia-Pacific, India, Middle East, Africa, underscores this statement and accentuates that “the strong presence of TÜV Rheinland in the Middle East region is highly beneficial for oil and gas companies operating in the United Arab Emirates and neighboring countries. We very much look forward to serving ADGAS and strengthening our collaboration.”
