IK-Group and US partner HPC Industrial Powered By Clean Harbors are pleased to announce a US-based energy supermajor have recently awarded their first contract using IK’s patented AOGV Mechanical Isolation Tool.  This first assignment will be completed at a refinery in the Western United States during the next couple of months and will be accomplished using a specially adapted 6” 400# AOGV to isolate on a boiler feed water system.  A site visit incorporating a detailed 3D scan of the location has previously been conducted and the tool will be adapted to the geometry at the site. IK-Group and HPC Industrial will work closely with the customer to ensure a smooth and timely execution with a high focus on both safety and efficiency.

Svein Tore Milwertz, IK-Groups AOGV Operations Manager comments "We are delighted to book this first job in the US and as we have been specifically targeting the refinery sector, we are pleased to see that a refinery owned by an Energy Supermajor becomes our first US customer.”
