NDT Global is delighted to announce the integration of Halfwave inspection services into the NDT Global business. Halfwave is the owner of the proprietary Acoustic Resonance Technology (ART), an ultrasound-based technique which allows high-precision measurements in imperfect conditions and without the need for liquid couplant. The ART technique allows NDT Global to officially enter the in-service gas pipeline segment and present a competitive alternative to MFL and EMAT testing. Halfwave AS was acquired by NDT Global’s parent in February of 2020.
Andy Bain, Senior Vice-President, NDT Global comments, "We truly believe this integration marks the start of a new chapter of what has already been a great story for NDT Global and Halfwave. We are excited about adding ART to our portfolio as it perfectly complements NDT Global's Ultrasonic Technology (UT) solutions. NDT Global is now a single supplier of gas and liquid pipeline inspections and integrity management services."
This integration brings many opportunities for our combined organizations in terms of services and technological advancements that we will be able to provide pipeline operators helping them operate their pipelines safely and efficiently.
