15 Sep Eddyfi Technologies Partners with Ashtead for ACFM Offshore Rentals

Eddyfi Technologies confirms a long-term agreement with Ashtead Technology for the rental of ACFM instruments in the offshore market.

Under the agreement, Ashtead will carry worldwide the AMIGO™ and U31™ subsea systems, as well as the new PACE®.

This move by Eddyfi Technologies confirms a change of strategy determined to better cooperate and leverage other industry players such as Ashtead Technology. Martin Thériault, president and CEO at Eddyfi Technologies, says: “TSC began renting directly in 2013 and in direct competition with other industry rental houses. This was attractive from a business standpoint, but it brought significant challenges in terms of global offices and logistics. Ashtead Technology already benefits from a global presence in subsea and topside rentals, and has been strongly committed to ACFM technology for over 20 years. This deal will allow Eddyfi Technologies to refocus on technology and high-level engineering to help the industry benefit from ACFM in a new way.”

Serving the subsea and onshore inspection sectors, Ashtead Technology provides global reach and local service from its facilities in Aberdeen, London, Houston, and Singapore, as well as through agents in Abu Dhabi, Perth, and Stavanger. Ashtead Technology has always been focused on asset reliability and innovation, and the company continually invests in rental equipment to deliver superior service.

Allan Pirie, chief executive of Ashtead Technology said: “This is a significant agreement for Ashtead allowing us to expand our NDT service offering and broaden the availability of ACFM across multiple markets. TSC has an outstanding reputation in quality assurance, which is of the highest priority for our customers and we look forward to working closely with the Eddyfi team in the coming years as they develop this market leading technology further.”
