Exova draws up test program to support McDermott in the Middle East
McDermott has contracted Exova to provide a range of testing services for its offshore fabrication projects.
Exova will manage the program from its laboratory in Abu Dhabi, with support from Al Futtaim Exova Metallurgy in Dubai.
The scope includes weld procedure qualification; welder qualification; coatings procedure approval; and component forensic analysis to support McDermott’s structural and pipeline production welding facility.
Exova will also conduct tests to provide the qualifications, including mechanical, fracture mechanics, and sour gas corrosion tests, as well as coatings and failure analysis.
