Advanced 3D Laser solutions recently completed an extensive project with a major UK oil refiner based in the UK focusing on the Pressure Systems Safety Regulations (PSSRs) required to maintain compliance with HSE legislation. We were asked to produce piping isometrics to cover all aspects of pipework lines within the five terminals in advance of the non-destructive testing (NDT).
This represented around 25 days of 3D laser scanning, using traditional site survey methods to hand measure and sketch pipework sections would have taken 3 piping designers over a year to produce encapsulating only the pipework, ALS gathered everything in the surrounding area with a +/- 2mm accuracy.
Following a presentation from Advanced 3D Laser Solutions, we are now using laser technology to capture our site data. During their presentation ALS answered all the questions we had regarding the benefits and cost saving that this technology offers in comparison to traditional methods. The cost saving and the speed of data collection was extremely impressive. We have now enlisted ALS to scan five of our terminals, producing piping isometrics covering all aspects of pipework line within the five terminals in advance of the non-destructive testing (NDT).
ALS are now working on a number other projects for us. Not only do they offer an excellent service but they are a pleasure to have on site. All of their staff are helpful and polite and deliver the project on time.
