Storage Tank Inspection Services

See clearly. Decide instantly.

After cleaning, inspection and repair, tanks are typically taken back into services for many years. That is why being able to trust on a reliable inspection is key. For many years, inspection has been a predominantly manual effort, with a strong impact of the person on the outcome of the result. While inspectors and NDT technicians must be trained and qualified to perform their work to a standard, results are typically highly dependent on the circumstances of the inspection. We offer the great added value of being able to operate your tanks at the optimal inspection interval with reliable state-of-the-art inspection technologies.

Assessing the overall condition of the asset

The integrity of a storage tank also depends on its tank shell, its foundation and roof. Threats can range from isolated corrosion to storm damage. We are able to assess not only the plate thickness, but the entire structure with new technologies such as 3D mapping, shell crawlers and internal drones. This data can be used for overall assessment or to make service changes such as installing a floating roof.

Our services include:

  • UT phased-array (PA), B-/C-Scan and spot measurements
  • Shell Crawlers and Internal Drones
  • 3D Verticality, Ovality, tilting and differential settlement
  • Tank Calibration
