Facilities
IOS offers a fully automated cleaning, blasting and inspection facility with an environmentally compliant closed loop filtration system.
Both safety and the environment have been of paramount importance in the design of the facility.

IOS has facilities for the inspection, refurbishment and repair of drillpipe, casing and tubing.

Conveying and rolling all tubulars under hydraulic control through the various inspection processes limits handling and ensures a safer inspection procedure.

A specially designed waste water system means the cleaning of tubulars is done in a manner to minimise the impact on the local environment.
