Its a first! E49 rig management confirms Geo Therm Ltd IRT inspection

July 16, 2019 6:00 am

With the Ensco and Rowan drilling companies recent merger, and name change to Valaris Plc from the 31st July we are extremely happy to answer their calling to provide our first Thermographic (IRT) survey on the Valaris E49 rig, (formally the Rowan Gorilla VII).

The high specification jack-up rig, (a LeTourneau, Super Gorilla Class) was built in in 2001 and has principally worked in UK/European waters; it is currently on location in the NWECS working for Chrysaor – the UK’s leading independent E & P  Company.

Geo Therm Ltd’s IRT survey on the E49 is intended to start in late July/early August at the time of the formal name changing to Valaris Plc.  The survey should take no longer than one week to complete.  The electrical biased Thermographic Survey is used to locate high resistance hot-spots in rig-wide electrical systems to prevent power outages, including condition monitoring of engine exhaust systems.
