Specialist inspection and measurement technology company – Optical Metrology Services (OMS) – has announced a strategic intent to enter the nuclear marketplace.
Achieving Fit 4 Nuclear (F4N) status in April 2016, OMS has been certified to provide precision measurement and inspection services across the civil nuclear sector. This accolade indicates that the company is a reliable service provider for the sector and will see the Stansted-based firm bid for a number of nuclear contracts over the coming months.
In addition to achieving F4N, OMS has also been confirmed as the latest organisation to join the NSA Nuclear Manufacturing Academy. NSAN-M membership will allow the company to align the skills and competencies of its workforce to secure future work in the nuclear sector.
Commenting on the project, James Sale, corporate services executive at OMS, said: “As one of the world’s leading specialist inspection and measurement technology companies, we are continually looking to further diversify and seek projects within new marketplaces.
“As part of an internal analysis project to identify new target sectors, we devised a strategy to further develop our civil nuclear competencies and align our capabilities to meet market demands.
“Achieving F4N status is a huge accolade for the team, demonstrating our market-leading precision measurement and inspection capabilities, as well as our flexibility and innovation. This accreditation, combined with NSAN-M membership will help OMS to effectively enter the nuclear marketplace, providing our market-leading services to companies across the globe.”
OMS offers a comprehensive range of internal and external dimensional pipe inspection and measurement services, specifically developed to mitigate project risk, reduce delays and streamline pipe laying efficiencies. The company’s innovative suite of tools helps clients to meet project specifications, as well as significantly improve fit-up, welding and pipeline integrity.
