Our inspection service will help you reduce the potential risk of costly delays or surprises during planned shutdowns and turnarounds. We minimise the need for people to work at height helping you to safely achieve your operational goals.

Live Flare Inspections

Our team has completed many visual and thermal live flare stack and flare tip inspections and surveys including inspections on a one-off, regular or emergency basis.
