High priority: Rope accessby Patrick Osgood on Jun 14, 2012
Total Solutions is ready to support the coming wave of offshore and brownfield work with quick and safe rope access
Total Solutions is a multi-disciplined company that specialises in rope access, providing maintenance and repair services to the upstream and petrochemical industries. A major part of Total Solutions business is in assisting EPC companies and end users in both onshore and offshore EPC works in the region, combining rapid access with skilled technicians to undertake works in difficult to reach locations.
The firm offers everything from standard maintenance, to advanced works, depending on client requirements.
Over the years Total Solutions has gathered extensive experience and operates in Bahrain, India, Iraq, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, gaining a proven track record to satisfy the requirements of the most demanding clients.
As the region increasinglt targets sour gas and sulphur-rich oil, corrosion and plant wear have become increasingly pressing problems. To address this issue, Total Solutions offers plant owners an extremely flexible composite repair system, used mainly on pipelines under attack from corrosion, using epoxy resins.
The system allows steelwork to be rapidly repaired and can be installed on live plant, shutdowns and section replacement which can dog complex or brownfield projects.
Total Solutions also offer a comprehensive suite of non-destructive testing services. With the flexibility of rope access, Total Solutions staff can carry out inspections at several hundred feet removing the need for scaffolding, which is an ideal solution for offshore inspections due to the weight restrictions of scaffolding on platforms.
The firm also supplies removable, robust thermal insulation jackets for oil, gas and petrochemical installations which can increase the safety of operations and increase the life of assets. The flexibility of being removable means that jet fire-proof system components can be inspected regularly and re-insulated within minutes.
Total solutions staff include:
• NDT Technicians
• Welding Inspectors
• Pipe Fitters
• General Maintenance Engineers
