Specialised technology development

The modern world is characterised by the rise of technology and its use in both existing and new markets in order to meet emerging challenges. OMS have a proven track record in specialised technology development and can provide innovative measurement and bespoke inspection solutions to address these challenges faced by businesses across a wide range of sectors on a global scale.

With OMS technology, engineers are able to survey their assets and review features such as corrosion, pitting, wrinkling, dents, shape, ovality, dimension or the presence of debris or obstructions. From precision measurement to advanced visual inspection techniques, OMS looks to utilise its strengths and provide improved process efficiencies to customers through innovation.

New inspection technology for hard to reach or confined locations

An example of OMS’ cutting-edge development is the combination of our existing crawler system with inspection technology into a single, more versatile unit. This compact device can be used for the internal inspection of remote or hard to locate spaces, particularly those where access is limited or the complexity of the structure impedes movement. This new inspection crawler unit, which combines laser scanning with image capture, can also be used at greater range through the use of fibre optic technology, enabling high speed data and image transfer. This improvement means faster reporting for the end user, ultimately improving efficiencies.

This particular tool was developed for a customer enabling the internal inspection of pull tubes on deepwater spar floating oil platforms where particularly tight project tolerances are a requirement. OMS can develop further technologies to help reduce costs and improve efficiencies through innovation. Talk to a member of OMS staff to find out more. 


Adapting technology and services to suit our customers

As businesses strive for competitive advantages over rivals, they seek to improve their capabilities, services and products to provide greater value to their own clients. OMS have addressed the needs of businesses operating in the most competitive environment that industry has ever faced by developing more versatile solutions. An example of this is the change in the method of providing our measurement, inspection and fit-up services to the oil and gas sector through the leasing of tools for use by the client rather than the traditional method of using OMS operators. Customers can now be trained by OMS staff to lease tools for use on projects by their own staff. With full support via a range of video, voice or conferencing options, this gives much greater flexibility in terms of scheduling work to suit the project application. Once complete, data can be digitally transferred back to OMS for processing, reporting and verification.

This update to flexible services not only provides some key improvements in terms of versatility to our customers, but also brings a number of additional efficiency benefits too. These include:

  • Increased health and safety due to fewer personnel on-site

  • Cost reduction through savings on operator visa costs, flights, accommodation and subsistence

  • Reduction in site administration for the customers


Working with you to deliver better value

OMS have traditionally placed emphasis on developing sound relationships with customers based on understanding and trust. In the competitive environment now faced by global businesses, OMS are now placing greater focus on becoming more customer-centric, creating even closer relationships with operators and forming deeper understanding of their requirements in order to deliver higher value services and products.

Our aim is to develop long-term relationships based on learning and mutual benefits to both organisations. For example, partnering between ourselves brings about highly technical exchanges leading to a greater appreciation of the challenges our customers face. This generates improved innovation with the opportunity to conceive superior technology to solve the challenges faced by the operator, ultimately resulting in higher value to customers and competitive advantage to both organisations.
