What We Do

Subsea Asset IM

A60N provides integrity management (IM) 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)

  • Pipelines

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

  • Materials compatibility

  • Corrosion and environmentally assisted cracking

Failure Investigations

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
