Highlights of the HOIS Symposium in Houston

22nd January 2024

HOIS hosted a highly successful Symposium on 18 January 2024 in Houston Texas to highlight the launch of two new industry guidance documents developed by the HOIS joint industry project on remote internal inspection and guidance for ultrasonic non-intrusive inspection and elevated temperatures (up to 250°C/480°F).

The event, generously sponsored by Eddyfi Technologies and TSC Subsea, attracted over 70 industry professionals and subject matter experts from across the Americas and Europe.

Two members of the HOIS team at ESR Technology, Helen Peramatzis and Mark Jones, introduced and highlighted the key points of the newly developed guidance in technical presentations, giving the attendees an understanding of the potential benefits that can be unlocked with the adoption of this guidance.  These were complemented by case studies and real-world experience of remote internal inspection shared by Sean Peters (Waygate Technologies), Sam Perez (Nexxis) and Paul Chittenden (TSC Subsea). Tim Stevenson (Ionix) also provided some excellent examples of high temperature ultrasonic inspection.

In addition to these presentations, there was plenty of time for technical discussion and knowledge sharing between industry leaders as well as the opportunity to see demonstrations of the latest equipment from CorrosionRadar, Crestone NDT, Eddyfi Technologies, Evident, Ionix and TSC Subsea at a tabletop exhibition.

Thanks to all those who attended and contributed to the insightful discussion sessions, including the wrap-session in which we discussed what the future for NDT in the energy sector will look like.
