EM&I receives UK patent for sea chest isolation valve inspection technology

EM&I, an industry leading global organisation providing asset integrity, inspection and specialised repair & maintenance services to the oil, gas, and renewable energy industries, have now received a UK patent for the ODIN Sea Chest Isolation Valve Replacement system.
ODIN uses advanced methods to plan and carry out the UWILDs, structural, isolation valves and other required inspections and maintenance tasks without using divers.
This particular ODIN Sea Chest Patent is for the innovative method of inspecting sea chests, replacing isolation valves and cathodically protecting sea chest internal structure without divers.
This ODIN application can be used on new or existing assets without operational disruption, with significant benefits that include reduction in HSE risk, cost, and POB.
Danny Constantinis, Executive Chairman said, “The continuous development of applications for the ODIN system demonstrates its fundamental versatility which is why it forms the basis of our Underwater Services Line and reinforces EM&I as a company that provides safer and better solutions for the energy industries”.
