We draw our organisation charts upside down to reflect our belief that leadership’s role is to serve the business and to devolve power as close as possible to the frontline and our clients. By implementing this model, we multiply the leadership capability of the organisation and increase human potential in order to better serve our clients.
Products & Services
IN-SERVICE INSPECTION (ISI)
All engineered equipment has a finite life cycle and deteriorates over time with use. Vertech provides comprehensive in-service inspection services across a range of industries to assist our clients with their asset integrity management.
We actively reduce risk, reduce cost and ensure the safety of people, operations and assets in a potentially dangerous environment. Vertech’s knowledge and experienced inspectors ensure industry compliance with code, statutory regulations and legislative requirements.
PRESSURE VESSEL IN-SERVICE INSPECTION (ISI)
In-Service Inspection (ISI) is essential to the safe and reliable operation of pressure vessels and pressure piping systems. Legislation such as AS/NZS 3788 requires that ISI of pressure equipment begins immediately after baseline inspections and the commissioning of pressure vessels for operation and includes the inspection of pressure vessels, boilers, and certain classes of pressure pipe systems that may interconnect items of the pressure plant. Pressure vessel inspection is performed to ensure the safety and integrity of pressure vessels.
Vertech is NATA accredited and has a wealth of in-service inspection knowledge. Our subject matter experts (SMEs) are trained and experienced in applying Australian standards and New Zealand in-service standards such as AS3788, AS4343 and AS1210.
