Silverwing is part of Eddyfi Technologies, a group offering high-performance NDT solutions for the inspection of critical components and assets through two strong, complementary brands: Eddyfi and Silverwing.
Silverwing UK Ltd began to trade in January 1983,
under the name Silverwing Limited, as a service inspection company
specialising in Non Destructive Testing (NDT), Contract Management,
Training and Consultancy. Initially the company specialised in aircraft
NDT, Tube Inspection for the Nuclear and Petrochemical industries and
training and consultancy in those industries.
In 1985 the Company was asked to undertake the training of Nigerian staff
for Shell in Western Nigeria. Following the success of this contract Shell
invited the Company to tender for the management of Shell's inspection
activities in Nigeria. The tender was successful and the resulting
contracts ran from 1986 to 1991. At its peak, the contracts in Nigeria
employed 120 indigenous inspection staff and 20 expatriate supervisory
engineers. Silverwing supplied the equipment and consumables for both
divisions of Shell during this period, and some 900 man-weeks of training,
examination and certification provided for indigenous staff.
In 1991 / 92 the Company's policy of maintaining a technical lead over it’s
competitors led to investment in the development of Magnetic Flux Leakage
(MFL) equipment to detect underfloor corrosion in bulk liquid storage
tanks. Initially the intention was to provide an added inspection service
to the company’s portfolio for our petrochemical clients and in 1992
Silverwing became only the third company in the world to have a working MFL
floor scanner. News of the success of the MFL equipment quickly spread
around the industry and following enquiries from the USA and Saudi Arabia
it was decided to add equipment manufacture and sale to the company’s
activities. In direct response to customer request development of
computerised storage, evaluation and mapping of MFL results was undertaken
resulting in the development of the Floormap MFL system which is now the
World’s leading MFL mapping floor scanner.
In 2000, the company was restructured under the name Silverwing (UK)
Limited and is now a specialist Non destructive examination (NDE) equipment
manufacturer concentrating on the Above Ground Storage Tank (AST) market.
The Company manufactures a comprehensive range of Magnetic Flux Leakage
(MFL) corrosion detection and sizing floor scanners and a complimentary
range of Ultrasonic (UT) wall crawlers. Our NDT equipment is designed for
maximum results and minimum operator dependency ensuring complete corrosion
detection and monitoring. Our patented equipment is in use in over 63
different countries worldwide, in a wide variety of climatic conditions.
