Tenders are invited for seeking a nace certified engineering consultant to perform a close interval potential survey (cips) for the water project pipeline.
CIS, also referred to as Close Interval Potential Survey (CIPS) measures the pipe-to-soil potential at equally spaced intervals directly over the buried pipeline section.
Cathodic Protection (CP) and Close Interval Potential Survey (CIPS) in ROI, NI and Scotland (onshore) regions.
Expertise in, among others, the areas of pipeline construction (conventional radiography, portable radiography, X-ray pipeline crawlers, automated ultrasonics AUT--girth weld, certified welding inspectors and asset integrity management); pipeline integrity (close interval potential survey, direct current voltage gradient survey, pipeline current attenuation survey, pipeline depth of cover and survey, pipe line right-of-way GPS survey, pH soil analysis and continuous resistivity surveys, chemical and mechanical pipeline cleaning, MFL inline inspection tools and deformation/caliper tools).
The corrosion patterns observed by the inspection vehicles were then compared with available aboveground survey data (test post potentials, close interval potential survey data and DCVG results and soil resistivity measurements, or a combination thereof) to:
The methods are Close Interval Potential Survey (both Lateral CIPS and Trailing CIPS) and Direct Current Voltage Gradient (DCVG).
Lateral Close Interval Potential Survey (CIPS), called the Intensive Method in Europe and DCVG or Digital DCVG by some in North America.
BAC has surveyed many thousands of kilometres of pipelines around the world carrying out full audits of cathodic protection systems and close interval potential surveys, Pearson surveys, current attenuation surveys and DC voltage gradient surveys.
