INTECSEA and Innospection have launched a flexible riser integrity management program, the FlexIQ.
The companies said that with this partnership they aim to redefine the approach to flexible riser integrity management by offering inspection and computational simulation techniques as part of an overall Integrity Management Framework.
FlexIQ looks to deliver all aspects of flexible integrity management through a single provider by combining inspection capabilities of MEC-FIT and numerical simulation capabilities of FLEXAS.
INTECSEA president, Neil Mackintosh, said: “Innospection is a perfect partner for INTECSEA in the offshore inspection space. We feel the alliance is a natural extension of our mission to provide innovative, independent solutions across the project lifecycle. We are confident our advanced FLEXAS technology, combined with the unparalleled inspection capability of Innospection, will provide increased understanding, and reduced uncertainty and cost for clients in the arena of flexible risers. The bottom line is that FlexIQ delivers insight, not just data.”
Andreas Boenisch, managing director of Innospection, said: “In decades of industry experience, with the majority in offshore asset inspection and integrity assessment, I have found the complexity of flexible risers to be unique. Reliable integrity assessment and remaining life evaluations of flexibles require focused and advanced technology and innovation, combined with expertise.”
At both Innospection and INTECSEA, these attributes are present. The resulting combination of capabilities is FlexIQ, which provides operators of flexible risers the unique opportunity to work with a partner capable of providing the absolute best possible data and analysis.”
