Largest inspection contract to date

7 August 2017

A.Hak Industrial Services Middle East has secured the largest contract in the history of the company. Joining forces with Al Tamimi, the five year contract includes the inspection of the majority of the un-scrapable pipelines of Saudi Aramco in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. This award is one of the largest of its kind globally and confirms A.Hak’s position as a leader in delivering pipeline integrity services. 

Roland Hendriks, General Manager of A. Hak Industrial Services Middle East, said: “A. Hak Industrial Services has a strong local presence in the Middle East and an impressive track record in cleaning and inspection of un-scrapable pipelines, which was key to our success in securing this contract. Our personnel and equipment resources are at the leading edge of inspection services, and our turnkey approach ensures the efficient and safe completion of every project.”

Inspection of un-scrapable pipelines is one of the most important services of A.Hak Industrial Services worldwide. With innovative technology, a large range of pipelines can be inspected, scanning the full surface of the pipe wall in high resolution. This allows a full overview of any wall-thickness reductions that may impact the pipeline’s integrity.

Commenting on the award, Rienk de Vries, Managing Director of A. Hak Industrial Services said: “This contract is another step in our growth strategy to become the reference for un-scrapable pipeline inspections in the Middle East. We are very excited and honoured to work with such a reputable company as Al Tamimi. Combining our strengths, we will have positioned ourselves to serve Saudi Aramco in the best possible way and deliver the highest quality”.

Saudi Aramco is the state-owned oil company of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and a fully integrated, global petroleum and chemicals enterprise. Over the past 80 years they have become a world leader in hydrocarbons exploration, production, refining, distribution and marketing.

Saudi Aramco’s oil and gas production infrastructure leads the industry in scale of production, operational reliability, and technical advances. The plants and the people who run them make them the world’s largest crude oil exporter, producing roughly one in every eight barrels of the world’s oil supply.

A.Hak Industrial Services provides a complete range of services to the oil, gas and petrochemical industries around the world. Through our Pipeline, Inspection, Storage Tank and Industrial service lines, we can assist in every step of the plant operation – from design to end-of-life – to assure the best possible operation throughout the installation’s work cycle.
