Inspection and maintenance T Jetty Shell Chemicals Park Moerdijk

As part of a major maintenance program, Shell wanted to inspect all the pipework and supports of their loading jetty ("T jetty") for their current condition. To do this, the T jetty had to be made accessible. Building a scaffold around it would be time-consuming and complicated due to the space available. Also, a scaffold would impose a substantial additional wind load on the T-scaffold. Provisions to reduce this would make the scaffolding costly. In addition, there was a need to know the results of inspections very quickly. In addition, there was a demand for extra support in the inspection area. 

Bilfinger used a team of eight in-house rope access technicians from Bilfinger Height Specialists for this specific assignment. We additionally trained our technicians by Bilfinger NDT Services to perform thorough visual surveys and provided additional services for reporting these inspections in accordance with Shell system requirements.  Pipes were then removed and replaced by our Piping & Mechanical specialists.


Advantages of this solution: 

1. Major financial savings.
2. Lead time reduction of up to four months.
3. One point of contact from Bilfinger for all work.

By not having to scaffold the entire T jetty for this inspection, we save a lot of money. Moreover, it's many times faster. I think we save at least four months of time with this."
