Materials engineering: Minimizing lifecycle costs
Our best-in-class materials engineering expertise and 'lifecycle cost' approach to the selection of materials ensures that your assets have the lowest possible lifecycle costs, balancing everything from corrosion management factors to fabrication programs.
The importance of materials engineering
Making the right material selection at the concept engineering and design stage is critical and impacts directly on lifecycle costs. By building factors such as corrosion, wear and fatigue management into the equation from the outset, we ensure the material system selected is the optimal lifecycle solution.
It all comes back to the depth of knowledge within our business. Our comprehensive asset lifecycle management capabilities enable us to apply our expert knowledge to the design, construction and operation of assets, as well as asset maintenance, optimization and decommissioning.
