Applus RTD steps up its support to the Norwegiansector with new office in Bergen

Friday, August 29, 2014

Applus RTD will open up a base in Straume, Bergen following the demand for its non-destructive testing (NDT) services in the region.

The new office and test facility, which will be operational in October this year, will serve the local market both onshore and offshore. It will provide in-house and on-site NDT, metallurgic field work and a range of inspection services including rig, paint, derrick and hull inspection.

The new base will staff up to 24 employees, as Applus RTD plans to recruit locally.

Eirik Bjorheim, Applus RTD Norway manager said: 'It was an obvious step for us to create a strategic growth plan for Norway in order to meet the demand for our services and underline our commitment to the Norwegian energy sector. With the Bergen office due to open in the next few months, we will now be able to provide on-site support for our existing client base.

'The organic growth of the company will continue throughout next year as we also plan to open up a base in Hammerfest in February, followed by our head quarters in Stavanger next summer. The new head quarters will include a test facility and offshore department to support our operations in the Norwegian North Sea.

'Applus RTD's goal is to be the largest inspection company in Norway by 2017, with around 400 employees in total.'

To date, the company has been involved in a number of Norwegian offshore projects, including the execution of vital NDT work at the Vigra Spoolbase with its radiographic pipeline inspection technology, the RTD Rayscan.

Applus RTD is currently developing a number of revolutionary technologies, including its RTD Rayscan, to drive improved reliability and efficiency throughout the testing process. The company will be demonstrating its RTD Rayscan, along with its RTD IWEX (Inverse Wave Field Extrapolation), and RTD Plant Master techniques at the ONS exhibition in Stavanger this week (25-28 August) in hall U, stand 67.
