PMC provide a wide range of pipeline and asset inspection services such as visual inspection, corrosion measurement, corrosion rectification along with non- destructive testing, hydrostatic testing, radiography and phased array.
PMC has also invested in a number of 3D laser scanners which will eventually replace the traditional P11 inspection.
The hand held laser scanner is a system for increasing the efficiency of pipeline damage measurements. Its use improves safety of technicians by reducing the time spent in excavations and it also improves the reporting of pipeline damage/defect condition.
PMC conducts aerial surveys to detect any activity on the ground that may be a threat to the pipeline. PMC operates a fleet of helicopters along with a crew of pilots to plan and deliver the schedule of surveys. Pipelines are patrolled at 185 km/h and 500 feet.
Line walking compliments the requirement to survey pipelines via an aerial survey. PMC have developed bespoke applications to record information in the field which provide real time status updates and photos.
If any faults are found we record the pipelines depth, a fault description and location details. Minor repairs are also completed during the linewalk. Remedial works are also carried out post line walk.
