TWI’s team will spend approximately seven months on the fast track development project, following which they will also provide theoretical and applied training on the newly commissioned system to key representatives of Malaysia’s oil and gas industry.
Ángela Angulo, Senior Project Leader who will manage the project for TWI said ‘We are delighted to have secured this contract with the Universiti Teknologi Malaysia, which will
potentially lead to the vital monitoring, for corrosion and leak detection, of some 6,000 underground storage tanks across the country.’
‘Our vision for the realised system is that it will bring significant benefits to end user operators including a reduction in cost, shutdown inspections and maintenance intervals; an increase in safety levels; and better control over long term operational and financial assets management,’ she added.
