TSC Inspection Systems signs ACFM equipment rentals agreement with N-Sea Offshore Ltd


TSC Inspection Systems and Aberdeen-based subsea IMR specialists N-Sea Offshore Ltd have announced the signing of a two-year frame agreement covering the supply of subsea diver-deployed ACFM® products, technical support and operator ACFM competency training.

“We are pleased to continue working with N-Sea directly, building on last year’s project where we supplied ACFM equipment for a very specific IMR requirement,” said TSC’s Commercial Director, Paul Watkins. “TSC was able to provide a fast turnaround, offer ACFM technical support, manufacture a bespoke test-plate and provide customised probe configuration to meet N-Sea’s requirements. This quick response, together with our on-board expertise, opened the door for further discussions that have led to the signing of this agreement. We believe that both our companies share common principles when it comes to customer support and we are looking forward to working with N-Sea over the term of the agreement and beyond.”

Roddy James, N-Sea’s Chief Operating Office, said: “We are delighted to be working directly with the inventor and manufacturer of ACFM technology. Being able to have access to the knowledge and experience that TSC can provide is a major factor for us and we are very much looking forward to working closely with the TSC team in Aberdeen.” TSC Inspection Systems is the UK-based developer and sole supplier of ACFM technologies. ACFM is an advanced electromagnetic inspection technique for detecting surface-breaking cracks in welded structures and is a reliable NDT method used across a broad range of industries. TSC manufactures rugged and field-proven ACFM systems for subsea and above-surface applications, together with a wide range of probes.
