NDT Tank, Pipes and
Vessels Inspection Services within the Middle East

In support of Silverwing’s advanced product development we operate a specialist inspection team concentrating on corrosion detection, sizing and servicing the storage tank and pipe line market within the Petro-Chemical industry.

Our inspection division includes API 653 certified inspectors and EEMUA 159 certified tank integrity assessors providing the complete NDT inspection solution. This team can work directly for asset owners, but we also supply specialist skills via existing inspection service or maintenance companies, enhancing their capability and helping to develop their in-house teams.

To compliment the Inspection Services, Silverwing is able to offer full engineering assessment of tankage to meet the guidelines laid down by EEMUA 159 and API 653 including "fitness for purpose" and inspection scheduling reports within the UK and UAE. Our personnel employ best working practices with safety a top priority. Preparation and execution of site-specific health and safety plans coupled with detailed inspection procedures ensure Silverwing meets Health & Safety and International inspection specification requirements.
