OFFSHORE SERVICE COMPANY LAUNCHES CYLINDER TESTING FACILITY IN GREAT YARMOUTH


An offshore company has set up a cylinder pressure testing centre in Great Yarmouth to expand the scope of its services.


The staff at EPIC International Limited have more than 10 years’ experience of servicing and testing of cylinders for the diving industry.


Managing director Dave Rowan has converted part of the company’s Vanguard Road building into a three-room test centre for cylinders used in the diving industry and general offshore industry.


Mr Rowan, who has long campaigned to retain and build new energy industry services in Great Yarmouth to preserve its status as England’s oil & gas centre, is also planning to test other compressed gas cylinders with the £15,000 worth of equipment he has installed.


Since receiving certification, the company is already in negotiation with a major national company to provide testing and certification, he said.

“This would be a fantastic launch for the new facility.


“Creating this centre is another way to expand our services to existing clients and also find opportunities with new.”


The new centre has all the equipment needed to service and test a wide range of cylinders and is aimed to service both industrial and leisure industries.


It is a requirement that all cylinders carrying compressed gas between 0.5 litres and 150 litres have hydrostatic pressure tests for pressure integrity and internal and external corrosion using the hydrostatic test chamber.


According to The Inspectorate for Diving Equipment Servicing and Testing regulations, a full hydrostatic test and certificate is needed every five years and a visual inspection certificate every two and a half years.


All the equipment for hydrostatic- testing, valve servicing, shot blasting,


cleaning and repainting is installed in EPIC International’s new centre


“As well as the offshore cylinder business, we will be looking to build up the business outside the offshore industry with breathing apparatus and, hopefully, take on an apprentice.“
