The types of cases handled have varied from a court case about a power station that had received unacceptable components during manufacture, a malfunctioning off-shore floating hose, a valve failure job involving crude oil metering skids in Iraq, the seals on a brewery mash tun vessel and a gearbox shaft failure on a tyre shredding plant.
