IECEX Related Project for Diamond Drilling

<<Blog Topic>>

ATEC has been engaged since late 2019 by Diamond Drilling to implement a Hazardous Area Compliance program

ATEC was awarded this scope against stiff opposition from other service providers but ATEC proved to be partner of choice based on their vast experience, proven industry record and most importantly their IECEX CERTIFIED SERVICE FACILITY status.

The IECEX CERTIFIED SERVICE FACILITY status has assured Diamond’s regulatory authorities of Best Available Technique (BAT) for Companies operating within Potentially Explosive Atmospheres.

ATEC scope included detailed inspection on new equipment packages along with Close/Visual for “Periodic” along with a remedial fail/fix strategy that allowed completion in around 30% less time (& 30% less cost) than estimated by competitors.

During Inspection, ATEC has a standard operations procedure which means that their experience, certified, staff inspectors have a consumable pack within their ‘toolbox’ which allows an optimized turnkey compliance campaign of Inspection, Material supply & fail/fix scope. This is the catalyst of their success (as opposed to 2 separate inspection/repair scopes = 2 sets of permits/2 sets of isolations etc etc).
