Technology to ensure the integrity of the components of fossil-fuel power plants
At Tecnatom we help electricity power plants ensure that all their systems and components are in prime operational conditions, in order to certify that they possess the maximum degree of safety and efficiency.
To do this, we provide inspection services using Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) techniques, which do not affect the integrity of the components being inspected. These inspection services, with a high added value, are provided throughout the lifespan of the electricity plant.
Tecnatom offers solutions based on the latest inspection technology, which are developed from our broad NDT experience of over 60 years.
Our professional inspection services experts are certified in all NDT methods in accordance with UNE, ASME and other regulations.
Among these services is the plant requirement research, which defines the most efficient inspection services for each specific case. An inspection plan is carried out in constant collaboration with our clients, which is concluded with detailed reports and, if required, final recommendations.
Our objective is to always help our clients meet their safety standards, proposing the most efficient inspection solutions possible, based on all-inclusive services, which reduce costs and increase process efficiency.
We design NDT solutions in constant collaboration with our clients, identifying a plan which best suits the available windows and production cycles of their plants.
Once the needs of the plant are assessed, inspection solutions are identified which include the standard requirement procedures that need to be applied and the definition of the inspection system (mechanical system and NDT equipment).
Tecnatom has its own technology meaning that we have been able to develop a large variety of inspection systems, both automatic and manual, which enable us to provide services using all NDT methods;
Ultrasounds (Laser generated or Phased Array UT Air)
Radiology (digital y conventional)
In the inspections carried out by our NDT expert professional, we use highly versatile inspection systems, which can be adapted to the diverse geometry and thickness of the components.
Our systems can be modified as per the specific needs of our clients to meet complex inspection requirements. To do this, Tecnatom has a technological development area which allows us to successfully address new regulatory requirements or to adapt new inspection technology for certain components.
Our extensive international experience in this sector means we can demonstrate our flexibility and agility when dealing with any inspection related challenge through our NDT techniques.
Tecnatom is a global leader in the development of Non-Destructive Testing techniques, at all phases, from the specification and development of the inspection technique, to its integration into autonomous and robotic systems. We are also able to develop and manufacture hardware and software for ultrasound and induced current equipment.
This technological independence means that the robotic equipment used in our inspection, apart from being designed and manufactured by our experts, is also enormously versatile. This means we can streamline inspection processes, increasing efficiency and reducing both times and costs for our clients.
This is possible thanks to our sustained investment in R+D, conscious of the fact that a solid technological base is a fundamental foundation on which to grow. This technological capability is complimented by our detailed knowledge and experience of Non-Destructive Testing science, meaning that our experts are global role models in NDT techniques, as well as in the requirements of different international standards.
At Tecnatom we know that technology together with knowledge and experience is key for the optimization of efficiency in NDT inspections, contributing to the safe and optimal operation of electricity power plants.
