What We Do
A60N provides asset integrity management (AIM) services to our clients to ensure their assets function safely and reliably. The purpose of IM is to prevent structural, containment and function failures through a structured process. Our areas of expertise include:
Subsea Production Systems (SPS)
Umbilicals, Risers and Flowlines (URF)
Testing and Materials
A60N provides bespoke onshore and subsea testing services for both equipment and individual materials (metals, polymers and coatings). Our areas of testing expertise include:
Functionality of subsea equipment / interfaces
Corrosion and environmentally assisted cracking
A60N provides independent failure investigation services to our clients through a variety of methods. The service allows asset operators and original equipment manufacturers to:
Determine root cause of failure and identify contributing factors
Understand future risks
Assess mitigations / design changes to prevent similar failures in the future
First stage of a PA12 analysis project underway with the cutting up of a recovered flexible flowline.
Four more UTAs repaired using the A60N cable blocking system, IR recovered to > 10 GΩ.
FiGS® Stray Current Testing
Stray current testing underway in the office with the Force Technology Norway FiGS® sensor.
A60N and Force Technology Norway stand at the AOG, no international travellers but a good local turnout.
New A60N Office
A60N moved to a larger premise with more workshop space in East Perth to allow for growth with our partner Force Technology Norway.
Subsea Camera Busselton Jetty
A60N installed and comissioned a View Into the Blue Angler camera to allow live streaming from the Busselton Jetty.
Remote FiGS® Survey in NZ
A60N and Force Technology Norway helped a client survey a buried flexible flowline as part of an integrity management scope.
Susbea Deposit Management Systems
A60N developed and supplied a number of subsea deposit management systems for a client looking to prevent deposits forming on their subsea tree LVAOs.
Electrical Cable Gas Blocking System
A60N developed and succesfully deployed an electrical cable blocking system to aid the UTA repair process.
Electrical Harness RCA
Multiple RCAs performed following recovery of equipment from a number of UTAs
Electrical Cable Degassing System
A60N developed an electrical cable vacuum degassing system to aid UTA repair work.
Subsea Umbilical Caretaker Module Support
