Dutch-based IRM Systems, a pipeline engineering firm specialized in inspection, repair and maintenance, has opened a new base of operations in Houston, Texas.
General Manager of IRM Systems, Rutger Schouten, said: “By having a permanent presence in Houston, we are in a much stronger position to provide customers with cost-effective, hands-on IRM engineering solutions; ones that will help to ensure that once accessed, these resources can be delivered efficiently at the lowest cost.”
The company said that one of the primary aims of its Houston enterprise is to further develop its risk management services, particularly its integrity assessment and mitigation capabilities for pipelines, steel catenary risers, and fixed risers.
The new Houston base supports the expansion of IRM Systems’ project management engineering services, further complementing those supplied by the company from its headquarters in The Netherlands.
Danny Ling, recently appointed GM – The Americas for IRM Systems, said: “I look forward to offering the innovative, hands-on approach of IRM Systems to the Houston market.”
“The company’s track record showcases its ability to adapt and develop workable solutions quickly, using a systematic approach. As a result, production downtime is significantly reduced and environmental impact minimized,” he added.
