Weld Repairs and Welding QC
Asset damaged by in-service fatigue/cyclic loading or an unexpected failure? Axiom can supply a skilled team of welding engineers to investigate and resolve any structural welding problems. We supply personnel with expertise in project management and have a QA/QC understanding of engineering issues and applicable specifications.
Structural Weld Repairs
Localised structural weld repairs are usually carried out post-NDT survey, by removing and repairing welding defects on the asset structure using a coded welder and Weld Procedure Specification (WPS).
A Multi-disciplined NDT and Welding Rope Access (IRATA) team can be supplied to action structural weld repairs in line with project specific client approved method statements and international guideline specifications. All post remedial QA/QC documentation will satisfy the requirements of any CA/ICB/end client quality or HSE audit
Welding Quality Control
- An inspection and test plan (QA/QC methodology) is implemented on our on-site weld repair projects.
- Structural (primary and secondary critical steelwork assembly welds), Piping (High or Low Pressure) and Vessels (pressure vessels/air receivers/bulk tanks) will have undergone CVI/NDT survey by our inspection team.
- Anomalies are discussed post survey, risk assessed and a project specific remedial action method statement initiated pre project repairs.
- Axiom supply both CSWIP & PCN qualified welding inspectors and fully coded (and rope access qualified) welders. A library of previous project weld procedure specifications is held in our technical library for reference.
- Confined space issues can be overcome also in way of hazard counter measures.
- Safety parameters are considered first & foremost on all projects. Our safety record onshore & offshore is excellent.
- Once localised weld repair remedials have been actioned and passed NDT clearance, there is total traceability on all weld repair andInspection activity prior to isolation removal or handover.
- Axiom’s QA/QC project documentation packages are second to none.
