As a result of the success of their diverless, and remote inspection and repair technologies, EM&I have strengthened their engineering team by promoting two of their experienced senior staff to the key roles of Chief Engineer and Deputy Chief Engineer.
Dr. Doug MacDonald, PhD., P.Eng., has been appointed Chief Engineer, and Andrew Collard M.Eng., Prof IMMM., Deputy Chief Engineer.
The speed of acceptance of EM&I’s innovative technology for the oil/gas and wind energy industries requires focused engineering support.
Danny Constantinis (Executive Chairman) of the EM&I Group commented: “Whilst we have always had a strong engineering team these appointments support our technical development activities and allow us to bring them to market more quickly.” While EM&I’s diverless services are well established the engineering team will work on expanding their application to the renewable energy sector, particularly floating wind.
The NoMan® remote tank inspection technology is also an area of focus for the engineering team, who are helping expand the already proven remote camera systems to incorporate robotic ‘synchronous laser’ systems.
The team has already been key in introducing ANALYSE™ to major operators by demonstrating reductions in piping inspection costs by over 50%.
The ExPert® innovation enables Non-Intrusive Inspection of Ex equipment while HullGuard®, a diverless ICCP system, now operating successfully in the North Sea is also being supported by the engineering team.
