Arnlea to provide inspection systems across SBM Offshore’s FPSO fleet
Arnlea Systems, a mobile technology asset management provider, has secured a six-figure contract with SBM Offshore, a provider of FPSO vessels, to rollout its Intrinsix Ex inspection system across the firm’s fleet of FPSO vessels.
Arnlea Systems, based in Aberdeen, will rollout the Ex technology for SBM Offshore under a three-year contract.
According to Arnlea, the Ex inspection system, which is part of Arnlea’s mobile technology product suite, Intrinsix, will enable SBM Offshore to enhance its inspection and work management operations around hazardous area equipment.
“Complying with ATEX industry regulations, the system alerts relevant parties to potentially serious issues in a time-critical manner, reducing unplanned shutdowns and loss of revenues,” the company explained.
Arnlea Systems managing director, Allan Merritt, said: “This is Arnlea’s first fleet deal and it is a substantial global contract for us that will help to secure and stabilise jobs across our Aberdeen and Philippines offices.”
Merritt added: “Our team has established a great working relationship with SBM Offshore, having supplied inspection systems to the operator prior to our improved Ex offering, and so the rollout of the system across its fleet will be a smooth and highly beneficial process for the client.
“Intrinsix Ex will enable SBM to follow a set of processes in compliance with ATEX regulations to help provide tangible benefits to the firm, including return on investment within the first year.”
