Typical Case Achieved
Water industry, UAE: After a complete baseline study, a Risk Based Inspection tool has been implemented to manage the assets condition. After 3 years of operation, the system has helped to anticipate failure or dysfunction and then to reduce unavailability of equipment and financial costs. The integration of corrosion management is helping the plant management to forecast and schedule operation and maintenance as well as having a clear overview through key indicators.
