Many assets that are used worldwide are old and aging. More than half of Oil and Gas workers, for instance, work on installations of twenty years or older. So, managing the aging of assets by carrying out effective Asset Integrity Management is vital for organizations to stay safe and compliant. Inspection managers and asset integrity professionals are further put under pression by the trend of budgets being tightened. So, it is a balancing act of maintaining installations throughout their asset life cycle, extending their life time while keeping cost at a minimum and without introducing non-compliances. MaxGrip has an extensive track record in safeguarding compliance and therewith the reputation of asset intensive organizations. Our services in Asset Integrity Management tap in at any stage of the asset life cycle.
