Measuring chain dimensions is critical for verify chain corrosion and wear rate design assumptions and confirming that chains maintain minimum strength requirements throughout their lifetime.

Available globally, Welaptega’s 3D Modelling technology creates accurate geometric models for damage analysis, repair solutions and strength assessments of damaged or degraded components.
Global subsea equipment solutions specialist, Ashtead Technology has further bolstered its rapidly-expanding inspection, maintenance and repair services and capabilities with the acquisition of Canadian-based underwater inspection company, Welaptega.
With minimal training, almost anyone can use a caliper to take a measurement or watch a ROV monitor and claim to have inspected a mooring system. But how can you be sure of the accuracy of these measurements? Was the chain cleaned properly? Was the tool placed correctly and in the appropriate location?
Thanks to an increased focus on efficiency and a continued commitment to reliability and meaningful data, Welaptega has ridden the wave of change brought on by the recent industry downturn and further solidified its position as the industry leader in in-situ mooring inspections. After a busy Summer 2018 that saw us inspection more than ten mooring systems of permanently-moored floating assets, we wanted to take a moment to let you know what we’ve been up to.
Stephen is the newest member of the Welaptega Team. He is a fourth year student taking Mechanical Engineering at Dalhousie University and is working on completing his third and fourth co-op terms here at Welaptega. Much like previous recruits, we thought it would be awesome to get to know more about this aspiring young man so we sat down with him for a Q&A.
A permanently moored Floating Production Unit has a complex mooring system with many constraints. A wide variety of factors must be considered to try to predict the future and account for degradation of the system.
Meet Meuni, a recent graduate from the Chemical Engineering Program at Dalhousie University. Meuni became a member of the Welaptega Team in December of 2016. She is focusing on researching Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion. We wanted to get to know Meuni a bit more so we had a had a little Q&A session with her for a […]
Cultural diversity is the norm in the offshore industry. This blog entry was written approximately 62 nautical miles off the Niger Delta of Nigeria on a vessel manned with personnel from Nigeria, Denmark, the Faroe Islands, South Africa, Scotland, Trinidad and Tobago, England, Canada, India, and the USA. This cultural diversity is compounded by the cultural diversity within each of the nations represented, but no more so than Nigeria. There are an estimated 521 languages and over 1150 dialects and ethnic groups within Nigeria.
When it comes to mooring inspections of offshore floating production installations, Welaptega is at the top of its class. This is the result of more than 20 years of experience performing inspections and assessments in every corner of the globe as well as a relentless commitment to continuous improvement of its knowledge base, execution, and R&D. Many of the inspections performed by Welaptega are carried out to meet the requirements of various classifications societies such as Lloyd’s Register and DNV-GL.
