Rope access

Applus RTD delivers rope access solutions which maximize the effectiveness, safety and productivity of client assets in any environment worldwide – whatever the inspection or measurement challenge.

Operators of major structures in the energy sector – including oil and gas assets, chemical and storage facilities, nuclear and conventional power stations – must maximize production while operating according to the highest safety standards.

The same challenge faces the public and private building sector, including infrastructure such as roads and railways.

Rope access technology can help ensure that every aspect of the inspection, engineering and fabric maintenance of assets is carried out in accordance with the most stringent international standards.

Applus RTD has vast experience across its dedicated teams of highly trained and qualified NDT and inspection specialists to meet the challenge of maximizing the effectiveness, safety and productivity of client assets through rope access solutions.

Our team has industry leading capability – from project managers, NDT inspectors, riggers (Optimo, EMTA), specialist netting installers, mechanical engineers, welders, platers, pipefitters and mechanical fitters, electrical and instrumentation technicians, fabric maintenance specialists and structural specialists, to structural surveyors and examiners, and concrete repairers.

Rope access specialists play a key role in meeting NDT requirements, and can often deliver in less time than by using traditional approaches like scaffolding.
