- Project & Tenders
Applus+, a testing, inspection and certification company, said that through its Applus+ RTD unit, it has been awarded three deals worth AUS$22.5 million for the Ichthys LNG project’s onshore LNG facilities.
The contracts for the Inpex-operated LNG project were awarded by Laing O’Rourke, Monadelphous Engineering and UGLKentz JV, the company revealed in its statement.
Under the three contracts, Applus+ RTD will provide inspection engineering, asset integrity management and advanced non-destructive testing services on two LNG tanks, one LPG tank, one butane tank and two OBSL and ISBL mechanicals.
Applus+ RTD’s Rayscan Tankscan will be used throughout the three-year contracts, which is the first time the technology will be deployed in Australia, and only the second time worldwide. The digital radiographic inspection system can complete a full inspection of LNG storage tanks in a single scan, producing a high-quality image of each weld.
The company also informed that Applus+ RTD provide maintenance for the anticipated 40-year life cycle of the plant.
