Development, installation and maintenance of the most competitive facilities in the sector
At Tecnatom we help nuclear plants ensure that their systems and the components thereof are in prime operational conditions, with the aim of certifying their safety and efficiency to the highest possible degree.
In order to do this, we provide inspections services which use Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) techniques that do not affect the integrity of the components that we inspect. These highly added value inspection services are provided throughout the life cycle of nuclear plants.
We offer solutions based on the latest inspection technology (EMAT, UT Phased Array, Laser Generated Ultrasounds, Thermograph, Induced Currents, Digital Radiography, etc.) which derive from Tecnatom’s extensive experience in the NDT field, in which it has provided services for over 60 years.
Our NDT experts (who are certified in all NDT methods in accordance with the various regulations: UNE, ASME, etc.) carry out requirement research on the industrial plants, defining the most efficient inspection solutions for each case, and in continuous collaboration with our customers, we execute an inspection plan that concludes with detailed reports thereof, including, if necessary, any final recommendations.
Our objective is to always help our clients meet their high safety standards, proposing efficient inspection solutions based on global services which reduce costs and increase process efficiency.
We design NDT solutions in continuous collaboration with our clients, identifying the planification which best suits the availability and production cycles of the plant.
Once the inspection has been assessed, inspection solutions are identified which contain both the applicable procedures in accordance with the required regulations, and the definition of the inspection system (mechanical system and NDT equipment).
At Tecnatom we have our own technology which has allowed us to develop numerous inspection system technologies, both automatic and manual, allowing us to provide services using all types of NDT methods: ultrasounds (UT Air, laser generated or Phased Array), induced currents, liquid penetrators, magnetic particles, radiology (digital and conventional), thermography, etc.
In the inspections carried out by our NDT experts, we use our highly versatile inspection systems, which are able to adapt to the diverse geometrics and thickness of components.
Our systems can be modified as per the specific needs of our clients to comply with complex inspection requirements. To do this Tecnatom has a technology development department which allows us to successfully address the new requirements in accordance with regulations, or we can adapt new inspection technology which is applicable to certain components.
Our vast international NDT experience means we demonstrate enormous flexibility and agility when taking on any NDT inspection technique challenge.
At Tecnatom we are international leaders in the development of Non-Destructive Testing technology, from its specification and inspection technique development to the implementation thereof in robotic and autonomous systems, including the development and manufacture of Hardware and Software of ultrasound and induced current equipment. This technological independence allows the robotic equipment we use in our inspections, which is designed and manufactured by our experts, to possess enormous versatility which facilitates the inspection process, increasing efficiency and reducing the time and costs for our clients.
This is all possible thanks to our sustained faith in R+D investment, conscious of the fact that a solid technological base is fundamental for our growth. In addition to our technological capacity we also have profound knowledge and experience in the science of Non-Destructive Testing, which make our experts global leaders in NDT techniques as well as in the requirements of different international standards.
At Tecnatom we know that technology, knowledge and experience are the keys to optimizing efficiency in NDT inspections, and contribute to the safe and optimum operation of industrial plants.
