EM&I has announced that its NoMan® remote camera technology has been given ATEX (Ex) approval.

Such areas include for example confined spaces such as cargo oil tanks on tankers or […]read more >

NoMan enables general and close visual inspections of confined spaces without the safety risks and costs of placing humans in confined spaces or working at height. Getting the NoMan® USA Patent granted adds to the patents already received […]read more >

I would like to pay special recognition to the EM&I boys for the pace at which they worked..... all this completed whilst working to the safety standards we demand and in a tank which was physically demanding due to the temperature of surrounding tanks
This has been a big win from the point of view of safety with NO confined space entry and NO working at heights as well as the added benefit that
four tanks were completed in just over two days!
I would like to thank EM&I for all their work in creating and negotiating the alternative UWILD plan. This is the first MODEC asset globally to have been granted an alternative to the traditional diver driven inspection work.
Congratulations with your job well done and safely. It’s been a pleasure having you guys on board. I have to report that I really appreciate working with your team here on board, their positive and professional attitude was greatly appreciated
The approach taken by EM&I towards Health and Safety has been excellent and they proactively advise on improvements that could be made in this area. Having a trusted expert in this field who could highlight any areas of concern and make the required recommendations was of immense value to the operations. All in all it has been a productive visit and I have no hesitation in having the EM&I team back on board in the future.
Your excellent professional organization and great work results in the successful completion of this scope with the minimum down-time for the rig. Overall I was very impressed and couldn’t recommend your company highly enough to anybody who would ask.
EM&I have been able to provide skilled, specialist personnel during every mobilisation, and in all cases, they have been outstanding. The work has been professionally done and the reporting of the highest quality. I would like to pass on my appreciation to everyone in EM&I involved in the job for their hard work and making the job very successful.
This Project required exceptional vigilance in keeping personnel safe, EM&I did a very good job in a safe manner. They maintained high safety awareness and gave full cooperation among the ASOM team. This Project can be summarised in 4 words … preparation, verification, execution, documentation. EM&I scored top marks in all categories.
The use of proper planning and risk assessments by EM&I was very important and critical to their projected timeline as all EM&I UWILD inspections were performed during normal offshore drilling operations. All inspections and documentation performed to the satisfaction of the Class Society Surveyor.
The work was carried out using a multi disciplined workforce using EM&I’s innovative systems and resulted in significant time and cost savings when compared to the use of more conventional repair methods
