When an emergency strikes, or if trained, qualified assistance is needed during a planned outage, power plants can call on Everest VIT to assist in their remote visual inspection and foreign material retrieval needs. The Field Service unit of Everest VIT, a full-service remote imaging technology company, gives fossil or nuclear plants the option of on-site, remote visual inspection and retrieval services by certified technicians using a broad inventory of visual inspection equipment.
In fossil plants, inspection areas include turbine-generator and related systems, boiler tubes, feedwater heaters and piping, cooling and service water piping, furnace fans and duct dampers during operation, fuel tanks and vessels. In nuclear facilities, inspections include steam generators, turbine-generators, fueling operations, reactor components, diesel generators, reactor coolant pumps, heat exchangers, service water piping, valves and other systems and components. In addition, for the nuclear plants, Everest VIT can provide cost-effective, field-proven solutions to achieving IWE/IWL compliance.
Field Services is particularly helpful in an emergency when unexpected equipment problems cause downtime or a hazardous situation and also for assistance during planned outages and scheduled maintenance.
Everest VIT has seven regional field offices throughout the U.S. and has plans to expand to other US regions enabling the Field Service unit to respond immediately to a problem in any part of the country.
