SPX Bolting Systems secures order

SPX Bolting Systems in the Middle East, with support from its UK counterpart, has secured a US$1.2 million order to supply tools and equipment to Pretect, the Qatar based company working on a major five-year maintenance shut down program for a client in the LNG sector.

The order, one of the largest for SPX Bolting Systems, was dispatched from the UK in late January and will be used during the planned five-year maintenance shut down period.

Pretect specialise in maintenance, inspection, mechanical support and ‘customised’ long term solutions to ensure plant reliability and asset integrity.

“The ‘SPX Bolting Systems’ brand is relatively new to the region, so we were particularly pleased to be able to support our preferred Qatar bolting partner Pretect, in this way,” says SPX Bolting Systems’ Middle East Regional Sales Manager Wales Thomas. “We also trained 40 plus Pretect staff for mechanical bolting activities to API standards, and expect a similar quantity early 2015”

As part of the contractual agreement, SPX provided calculation software to Pretect and its client, and supported Pretect in Qatar during the initial kick-off meeting at the client’s Head Office in Doha. The client also showed a particular interest in the SPX FLANGEPRO Integrity Management Software, which Pretect will manage and facilitate on site.

The SPX FlangePro Adviser software has recently been used by Pretect-FMS at Basra Gas Iraq, and the company intends to introduce it to its other clients in Qatar.
