Ageing Plant Inspection in Life and Life Extension Phases

Webinars 09 May 2024

Offshore Energy/Pressure and Process Plant Technical Groups Webinar: Approach to Inspection of Ageing Plant in Late Life and Life Extension Phases

Who should attend?

Integrity management, inspection and plant operations personnel interested in how different industrial sectors manage their approach to inspection, maintenance and engineering assessment in late life and life extension phases.

Relevant Industry Sectors

Cross industry within the power sector (oil and gas, renewables, nuclear) -  integrity and inspection

What will you learn? 

This event is intended to highlight and compare the way in which different industry sectors approach the management of inspection and integrity as the plant they are operating enters the late life phase and possibly beyond original design life.

Integrity management strategies operate under differing legislative regimes and constraints, as well as operational and financial.

The modification, or otherwise, of asset integrity management and maintenance strategies as plant ages and demonstrations of continuing fitness-for-service that may be required will be described for a range of industries.

Experts from industry will be presenting on a range of topics:

  • Matt Henderson, Technical Asset Manager - Substructure and Asset Lifecycle, SSE Renewables on Integrity management within SSE’s offshore wind portfolio, and planning for life extension. 
  • Laura Scott, Lead RBI Engineer, TAQA
