Surface and Insulation Management

We support the coating, passive fire protection (PFP), and insulation maintenance of your assets by providing a bespoke range of tailored services, from database creation to complete fabric maintenance program management.

Coatings, PFP, and Insulation Condition Surveys

Our highly experienced, accredited coating inspectors complete detailed condition appraisals, focusing on a single area or evaluating an entire asset.

We accurately measure the repair area and report coating, PFP, or insulation condition using industry-recognized standards. Our technicians can also identify additional areas that need to be brought into scope to best optimize project resources.

We generate photographic logs, suggest repair methods, and detail recommended access requirements. If required, we can also assist with survey scheduling.

Third-Party Inspection and Quality Control Audits

We ensure that your fabric maintenance (FM) expenditure is optimized by using our independent expertise and experience to review contractor working practices and performance.

We develop audit plans to meet your requirements. We evaluate product selection, coating specifications, QA/QC procedures, and FM strategies.

We also evaluate contractor performance in areas such as blast and coating application; environmental conditions; and paint storage, mixing, and safety.

Fabric Maintenance Program Management

We provide comprehensive onshore and offshore management of FM contractors to ensure that work scopes are completed on time, to budget, and to expectations.

Each management program is tailored to meet FM project oversight requirements and focuses on optimizing productivity, reducing cost and downtime, and ensuring safe operations.

The SOLV Concept

SOLV software provides a database that organizes assets into detailed, manageable work units to provide coated-surface and insulation-related long-term plans. SOLV has the potential to help you realize cost savings while enabling the priority ranking of repairs and preventative maintenance.
  • Overview of the current condition status of each element inside the individual work units
  • Predictable, five-year, long-term plan detailing the budget required for maintaining each work unit to your desired condition
  • Module dedicated to corrosion under insulation (CUI)
  • Detailed, automated work pack production
  • Method of monitoring and tracking each scope of work

Holding Coat Application Services

Our holding coat application services provide a temporary solution for arresting corrosion on carbon steel piping systems. A holding coat can be used as a solution to prevent the buildup of superficial corrosion until planned fabric maintenance scopes can begin and to deliver cost-effective mitigation.

Our trained specialist inspectors execute the holding coat application workscope in a single mobilization, providing optimized efficiencies and reducing risk.

  • Coating condition assessment
  • Anomaly identification and assessment
  • Area preparation and holding coat application
  • QA/QC of cured application
  • Temporary repair registering

Company page Since our founding in the early 1960s, Oceaneering has expanded and grown globally to service several industries such as the offshore energy industry, defense, entertainment, material handling, aerospace, science, and renewable energy industries. In 1964, Mike Hughes and Johnny Johnson formed a Gulf of Mexico diving company called World Wide Divers. The company grew in response to increasing demand for their services and in 1969 merged with two other diving companies to form Oceaneering International, Inc. To solve the toughest challenges, we do things differently, creatively, and smarter. As your trusted partner, our unmatched experience and truly innovative portfolio of technologies and solutions give us the flexibility to adapt and evolve, regardless of market conditions. Our mission is to solve the unsolvable. We thrive by creating industry-changing technically creative solutions for the most complex operational challenges under water, on land, and in space. Our five core values establish a common culture and demonstrate what is most important for us as a company. Since the beginning, the company has transformed from a small regional diving company into a global provider of engineered products and services. Today, we develop products and services for use throughout the lifecycle of an offshore oilfield, from drilling to decommissioning. We operate the world's premier fleet of work class ROVs. Additionally, we are a leader in offshore oilfield maintenance services, umbilicals, subsea hardware, and tooling. We also serve the aerospace, defense, and theme park industries. Underpinning everything we do, safety is not only the foundation of our core values, but it is vital to our unmatched performance record and company culture. The industries we serve are as diverse as they are complex. Whether we are engineering deepwater umbilicals or developing robotics for aerospace applications, the safety and health of our employees, vendors, and customers is an integral part of our day-to-day business. If we are working, then our responsibility is to be working safely. Since our inception in 1964, we have placed a high value on employee safety—from diving services and subsea inspection to vessel-based installation operations. We have and will continue to evolve not only our health, safety, and environmental (HSE) processes, but those of the industries in which we work. Although we have been fatality-free since 1999, our HSE journey goes beyond statistics. As our portfolio of services has grown, we have continued to prioritize and advance our approach to HSE.
