EM&I has won major projects in Angola and Equatorial Guinea to use their NoMan® technology for remote inspection of pressure vessels during operational turn arounds on two FPSOs.

EM&I wins orders in West Africa for remote inspection technology

The NoMan remote inspection technology is faster, less costly, and far safer than traditional methods which incur the risk of manned entry into confined spaces.

NoMan is approved by the major Classification Societies to carry out general and close visual inspections of confined spaces, such as cargo oil tanks, ballast water tanks, turrets, and of course pressure vessels.

EM&I will shortly announce the long awaited NoMan synchronous laser system which adds the extra capability of remote thickness measurement, distortion checks, and pitting surveys, with further substantial cost, risk, and downtime reductions.

Add to that the ability to get equipment back into service quickly, and the 50% POB reductions, it is clear why NoMan is the method of choice for confined space surveys.

Danny Constantinis, (Executive Chairman) of the EM&I Group, commented: “EM&I has long been a leader in turnaround specialised services and these projects are no exception, with multiskilled teams carrying out flare tip inspections and repairs, confined space inspections and general inspection and repair services, efficiently and effectively”.
