ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY GROUP S.R.O. (ATG)
(Czech Republic)

www.atg.cz

NDT service company employing 38 people full-time, of whom 24 are university graduates. It uses all the conventional NDT techniques (radiography, ultrasonics, penetrant, eddy current, etc.), but also uses advanced methods such as neutron radiography and thermography. In addition, it provides consultancy services in the fields of material selection and corrosion engineering.

The substantial experience that ATG has with EU projects through collaboration of completed and current research projects will be relevant for the co-ordination of the horizontal actions. ATG will bring to the project its practical experience of NDT field operations. Many prospective NDT techniques have failed because the developers have not appreciated the constraints imposed by the conditions site work. The conditions can be particularly severe in the oil & gas, petrochemical and power generation industries. ATG are keen to adopt new technology that will enable them to break into the digital radiographic inspection field where they foresee major market opportunities throughout Eastern Europe in the petrochemical and power generation markets.

Reasons for participating
ATG view the manual NDT service work industry as highly competitive. Consequently, they are keen to adopt new technology that will enable them to break into the digital radiographic inspection field where they foresee major market opportunities throughout Eastern Europe in the petrochemical and power generation markets.

Contribution to project
The substantial experience that ATG has with EU projects through collaboration of completed and current research projects will be relevant for the co-ordination of the horizontal actions. The vice president of ATG, Dr T Netusil is also head of R&D and will personally oversee ATG's role the project. ATG will bring to the project its practical experience of NDT field operations. Many prospective NDT techniques have failed because the developers have not appreciated the constraints imposed by the conditions site work. The conditions can be particularly severe in the oil & gas, petrochemical and power generation industries. ATG will also take a key role in WP-A where they will assist True-Flaw of the design of the test specimens, WP-D radiographic technique development and WP-F Field trials.
