With falling oil prices and generally low commodity costs in the energy sectors a lot of companies are feeling the spending pinch. But industrial inspection doesn’t suddenly become optional just because of economic problems; asset integrity and risk assessment are necessary to ensure the longevity of property and minimize risks to personnel and the environment. In this blog we take a look at some options for acquiring Inuktun’s multi-mission modular technology even when Capex funds aren’t available.
Man entry comes with significant expense and human risk. And, in some cases, the location of access points on pressure vessels, tanks or pipes simply makes direct human intervention impossible. Developments with sensors and robotic technologies make it possible to do almost anything remotely, and inspection is no exception. But purchasing the required equipment can be cost prohibitive, especially when budgets are being reduced.
Always consider the job requirements. Is remote evaluation a regularly scheduled role in your operations, or is this a unique requirement? If it’s the latter, then renting may be the best short-term solution for you. Renting equipment from Inuktun ensures that you will receive up-to-date equipment that has been calibrated and maintained by our in-house service department who make sure everything is functioning perfectly before we send it to you. Whether it’s a Spectrum 90™ drop camera or a long range Versatrax 300™ crawler, every rental ships with a spares kit and operating manual, ensuring maximum return on investment. You can also take advantage of the ‘Try Before You Buy’ program where a portion of your rental costs will be discounted from a future equipment purchase.
If you depend on Inuktun’s camera and crawler systems for regular inspection operations, consider our financing options available. Inuktun works with a number of leasing companies that offer flexible payment terms at affordable rates. And, when you sign up for a five-year lease through one of our approved lessors, you may be eligible to have us pay your first three monthly payments! Foreign (outside of Canada) companies may also be eligible to receive financing through Export Development Canada (EDC) at competitive rates. Contact your local Inuktun representative if you would like to learn more.
And, if rentals or lease options still don’t fit your needs, look for extra discounts on the purchase of used or overstocked equipment. Currently we are offering special pricing on limited quantities of Minitracs™, Microtracs™, Spectrum 90™ cameras, Versatrax™ controllers, lights and tether reels. If you’ve been considering a purchase, now is a great time to take advantage of this offer on ready-to-ship inventory!
