Tracerco’s Discovery Subsea Scanner Gets Lloyd’s Register Recognition

Tracerco, part of Johnson Matthey, has received Lloyd’s Register (LR) recognition for its subsea CT scanner, Discovery.

The qualification trials of Discovery were conducted in a simulated subsea environment at Tracerco’s HQ in Billingham, UK.

Ben Metcalfe, subsea technical manager at Tracerco said: “We are extremely pleased to have this qualification programme recognized by LR who provided valuable technical input in terms of the specific NDT technique and the general qualification process. The results give our customers an assurance that the qualification was conducted in compliance with international standards and guidelines for offshore pipelines.”

In addition to its Flooded Member Inspection (FMI) service, Discovery is Tracerco’s second technology solution to receive the recognition from LR.

The Discovery is used in obtaining accurate measurements of pipe wall thickness through any type of protective coating whilst simultaneously diagnosing and characterizing flow abnormalities within subsea pipelines without interruption to normal pipeline operations.
