TSC Inspection and Aberdeen-based subsea IMR specialists N-Sea Offshore have signed a two-year frame agreement covering the supply of subsea diver deployed ACFM® Products, Technical Support and Operator Competency training.
“We are pleased to continue working with N-Sea directly, building on last year’s project, where we supplied ACFM® equipment for a very specific IMR requirement”, said TSC’s Commercial Director,Paul Watkins. “TSC were able to provide a fast turnaround, offer ACFM® technical support, manufacture a bespoke test plate and provide customized probe configuration to meet N-Sea’s requirements. This quick response, together with our on-board expertise, opened the door for further discussions that have led to the signing of this agreement. We believe that both our companies share common principles when it comes to customer support and we are looking forward to working with N-Sea over the term of the agreement and beyond.”
Roddy James, N-Sea’s Chief Operating Officer, says: “We are delighted to be working directly with the inventor and manufacturer of ACFM® technology. Being able to have access to the knowledge and experience that TSC can provide is a major factor for us and we are very much looking forward to working closely with the TSC team in Aberdeen.”
