Remote Flare Tip Inspection / Helicopter FlareTip Inspection.
Operators are finding it beneficial to undertake an aerial flare survey approximately 6 months prior to a planned shutdown (TAR). This allows enough time to prepare for the actual work-scope required.
Some operators also use our Flare services once a month to gauge flare deterioration rates, on problematic installations (Remote Flare condition monitoring).
What you receive
Following our pre-flight brief with the photographer, in which we request specific areas to be covered, we also pass on any client requests. These may be to get a few shots of the flare support structure, flare deck covering or flaredeck panels.
The following is provided:
- A set of Quality Photographs taken by a professional photographer (typically 20 – 25 photographs).
- If requested, the photographs can also be supplied digitally by CD, or in situations where photographs are required on an urgent basis selected photographs can be emailed.
- If required Argo Flares can also provide a detailed report on the condition of the flares, highlighting any possible areas of concern, along with likely consequences of any failure mode.
What is required
- Two return seats on a scheduled crew change flight (one for the photographer and one for the additional cabin crew to allow the aircraft to fly with its door open).
- An additional ½ hr between crew change-over for the flight (typical time required for a simple installation).
