Since 1989 Contract Resources has set new standards in the provision of specialised industrial and mechanical services to the oil & gas, chemical, mining, cement, utilities, pulp & paper, and dairy industries. Our focus was to provide specialised industrial services to oil refineries, petrochemical plants, and large industrial plants where the company's innovation, technical expertise, and higher standards of health and safety would be an advantage over local and international competitors.
Our Services include:
Our Catalyst Handling and Mechanical Services are amongst the best worldwide, and can be completed both on and offshore. We provide refineries and petrochemical plants with a complete, 'blinds to blinds' range of services for commissioning and maintaining catalytic reactors, vessels, and columns, as well as Shutdown and Turnaround management. Contract Resources is committed to best practice operations, and as such is constantly developing new methods or improvements for both inert and non-inert entries, as well as non-entry catalyst removal. Most of the critical equipment is proprietary, and we have access to additional modern refining technology through license agreements with other parties. Our specialised mechanical services include bolt tensioning and torquing, tube bundle (heat exchanger) extraction and replacement, revamp and modification of reactor internals, and hydro-testing.
Our Tank and Environmental services include mechanical preparation, sludge minimisation, tank entry and repair, and clean up of mercury contaminated materials such as sludge, catalysts, absorbents, and soil. We also provide a 'blinds to blinds' sludge treatment service using SLT technology, an emergency response service and rescue crews, and plant decontamination and demolition services.
We provide automated and in-situ cleaning of process equipment, and steel and concrete cold cutting using high pressure water in hazardous environments. Our internal and external tube bundle cleaning equipment is the most advanced available.
Our range of patented robotic vehicles utilising in-pipeline vehicle (IPV) technology has significant advantages over conventional pipe cleaning methods. Our precision cleaning is completed with one pass efficiency and constant monitoring; often removing deposits which are impossible to clean using conventional methods. We also provide waste removal services, furnace tube cleaning, pigging, and intelligent pigging inspection services.
