Media Release: Hose integrity contract in the CAN for EnerMech


MECHANICAL engineering company, EnerMech, has been awarded a £300,000 contract for hose integrity management by CAN.

The contract covers hose inspection and replacement on 12 UKCS onshore and offshore assets and was won in a competitive tender.

EnerMech will provide CAN with complete visibility of the condition of all flexible hose assemblies (FHA) and through a risk-based inspection process will develop a rolling inspection and replacement programme based on safety critical elements.

An unique online web-based system, EnerMech Live, will provide a live and real-time snapshot of the status for all FHA’s on CAN’s assets.

Gary McRobb, EnerMech’s UK manager for hydraulic products, said: “The smart technology we utilise ensures the inspections are focussed and effective and this was a key differentiator between us and competing bids.

“Our EnerMech Live system provides the client with a clear understanding of why it may be necessary to replace an FHA, while the market is used to receiving only an inspect and supply regime, without this level of integrity management.”

EnerMech will also apply RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) which allows the client to identify key specifications and historical data of the FHA in the event that the conventional tag is removed.

Mr McRobb added: “The award of this contract highlights EnerMech’s level of commitment and the continual investment we make in people, systems and technologies to promote a best-in-class culture.”
