Pipeline Inspection
Halfwave is a leading provider of pipeline inspection services setting a new standard for measurement of wall thickness in gas pipelines.

Pipeline inspection services are focused on tailoring Halfwave's patented ART Scan tool to specific customer needs in order to provide a safe, cost efficient solution for pipe inspection.

The company's highly experienced team will survey available data to customize the tool for client specific needs, provide a detailed inspection plan and execute inspection in a timely manner using the advanced ART Scan tool.

Subsea Inspection
Halfwave provides external inspection of subsea assets including rigid and flexible pipelines, flowlines and risers.

The company's unique patented technology and in-house developed tool ARTEMIS enables highly accurate inspection of ‘’unpiggable’’ pipelines and risers.

Subsea pipeline inspection services are done without the need for subsea field joint coating removal therefore highly reducing integrity risk and cost of inspection operation.
