THE MISSION :

IDMer, now CLAS, intervened as an independent consultant with the mission:

 

Explain the reason why these damages.Xbloc® XBLOC CLAS placement certification

Suggest solutions for the recovery of non-conformities.

Train installation teams and divers.

Control the work.

Certify the shell's conformity to the DMC design and TID.

 

PRODUCTION:

We repaired 5,500 meters of shell in less than six months and have shown that X-bloc ® can be adjusted without systematically removing them from the water. 50% of the repairs were carried out without disassembly.

PROCEDURE:

All non-conformities were purged with only 50% dismantling.

The CLAS inspectors intervened full time in order to carry out several daily inspections and thus not delay the work by imposing significant dismantling. The  training of diving and non-diving personnel has been continuous in order to maintain the highest level of safety and quality.

At the end of each inspection, a debriefing was organized with the installation team.

Xbloc® XBLOC CLAS placement certification RESULT:

The project was delivered on time and the X-bloc ® breakwaters received without  reservation by the client.
