DMNDT | Bernhard Schulte expands its range of services
Dive Marine Non-Destructive Testing (DMNDT), Bernhard Schulte’s newest acquisition, specialises in inspection, repair and maintenance (I.R.M) as well as training services for the oil & gas, marine, petrochemical and renewable energy sectors. Based in Singapore, DMNDT was formed in 2012 as part of the Dive Marine Group and purchased by Bernhard Schulte in 2016.
An IRATA (Industrial Rope Access Trade Association) member, DMNDT provides unique, safe and cost- effective ‘Alternative Access Solutions’ including rope access, web deck, web net and portable and mobile work platforms which allow safe access and execution whilst working at height.
These extensive capabilities are based on a wealth of experience that is complemented by industry best practices, accreditation and ethics. The Company’s hard work has paid off, with a series of safety awards being presented by their customers over the past three years.
Significantly, these accolades have been earned during a time of recession in the shipping industry, which Barri Marshall, DMNDT’s Managing Director, describes as a trial that has been “immensely challenging but also rewarding.”
“Our primary skills enable us to support a varied range of I.R.M work scopes throughout any stage of an asset’s life, with our commitment to excellence providing our dedicated team with the drive to maintain a positive and professional approach to meeting objectives.”
Crucial to DMNDT’s success has been a focus on continuous improvement and development which has been recognised through multiple certifications including IRATA, Lloyds UTM Hull Structures, ABS UTM 23 Hull Structures, DNV 402A UTM Hull Structures, DNV 402B Program – Offshore Structural Components and Bizsafe Level 4.
As a result, DMNDT has secured contracts with several oil & gas majors including an exclusive five-year IRM contract with the Petrochemical & Refineries located at Jurong Island, Singapore.
“We are exploring further opportunities to enhance safety, productivity and cost saving for our customers through advancements in technology. This complements our suite of core services by applying an innovative approach to visual inspection through drone technology and leading-edge software,” said Barri.
