The operators and equipment manufacturers for whom we have established the causes of failures and defined failure-prevention strategies, value our expertise and understanding of the root cause analysis of equipment failures.

For example, Wood Group Intetech has attended inspections of failed heat exchangers onshore in the UAE and offshore Malaysia to assist in identifying the reasons for leaks. We directed and reviewed follow-up failure analysis work undertaken in a third party laboratory on behalf of our clients. This included defining test programmes for alternative replacement materials.
