Success stories to date

The industrial services our specialist access capabilities allow us to provide are many and varied. Examples include:

  • Onshore and offshore tank cleaning
  • Penstock inspection
  • Cooling tower inspection
  • Silo cleaning
  • Removal of marine growth and corrosion
  • Marine vessel coating refurbishment

For example, with rope access, we were able to deep clean and decontaminate the forepeak in an oil tanker. Using scaffolding in this particular case would have been difficult, and presented safety risks. Our IRATA qualified staff completed the work, which involved confined space entry, in accordance with our customer’s permit system.

By using rope access instead of scaffolding we reduced cost and risk – and produced project outcomes that left our customer very satisfied.

Using rope access we are able to quickly, economically and safely reach relatively inaccessible areas.
