Delegates from some of the leading companies in Abu Dhabi's oil and gas industry attended a seminar organised by TWI to showcase its PolyTest plastic pipe inspection system.
The event, which took place on Tuesday (15 December), was set up to demonstrate the capabilities of PolyTest, an invention from TWI that enables volumetric non-destructive testing (NDT) of electrofusion and butt fusion joints in polyethylene pipes. With the oil and gas industry moving towards increased use of polymeric materials, the system has the potential to greatly benefit the sector.
Thirty delegates from companies including ADCO, GASCO and ZADCO, both Members and non-Members, attended the seminar, which was organised by Caroline Young, Programme Manager for Oil and Gas, TWI UK and Ahsan Rauf, Business Development and Operations Manager at TWI Middle East, which is based in the city. Ahsan was joined by two UK-based TWI specialists for the seminar: Technology Fellow Mike Troughton and NDT Team Manager Fredrik Hagglund, both of whom played key roles in PolyTest's invention.
