Sureclean and Nordic Chemical Solutions (NCS), the specialist provider of decontamination chemistry, have partnered.

The strategic alliance is allowing Sureclean to provide chemical decontamination services using NCS’s specialist chemistry to support the energy industry in the UK and overseas. Chemical decontamination as an alternative to, or in conjunction with, traditional water jetting techniques, is an ideal solution for cleaning pipework, tanks and vessels during shutdowns and turnarounds, commissioning or decommissioning works.

This partnership was formed towards the end of 2015. Since then, the two companies have undertaken extensive training of personnel, various equipment and chemistry trials and in-house R&D to enable them to be best placed to support industry with proven solutions.

Sureclean and NCS both have extensive experience in the provision of essential decontamination and cleaning services to the oil and gas industry globally. This partnership has allowed them to bring a new, innovative solution to the UK market to provide bespoke solutions to the client’s problems. Introducing chemical processes during decontamination projects often decreases time and manpower required to carry out projects, and increases safety and efficiency.

NCS was established in Oslo, Norway in 2003 and since then the company has carried out in excess of 4,500 projects in the North Sea. NCS has an extensive range of chemical decontamination techniques and capabilities, allowing them to provide unique, tailored chemistry. They have completed no fewer than seven offshore topsides decommissioning projects in the last 18 months where substantial time savings over traditional methods have been demonstrated.

Sureclean specialises in providing packaged cleaning and waste management solutions in support of commissioning, maintenance and decommissioning activities. Sureclean supports the oil and gas and wider energy industries globally from facilities in Alness, Aberdeenshire, North Africa, West Africa and the Middle East.
