SHELL selects Applus+ as global inspection services provider

Wayne Hutchinson, VP Enterprise Categories and Supplies Management of Shell, and Iain Light, Executive Vice-president of Applus+, have signed a four-year global Enterprise Framework Agreement (EFA). This agreement identifies the global inspection, testing and quality company as a provider to Shell for services related to vendor and quality assurance/quality control inspections, as well as non-destructive testing and related services.

The agreement will encompass many of Shell’s direct operations and its affiliates around the world for both capital projects and existing operating assets. The services of Applus RTD and Applus+ Velosi’s, two divisions of Applus+, one of the ten largest companies in the conformity assessment sector worldwide will be combined to provide the integrated solution.

Iain Light, Applus RTD CEO, stated, «the Shell EFA is a significant milestone in the long-standing relationship between Shell and Applus+, as since the early 1950’s we have been providing X-ray and other NDT services for Shell's Pernis refinery in the Netherlands. With our current global coverage and expanded service portfolio, we believe that Applus RTD and Applus Velosi offer the best inspection and NDT solutions to the global oil and gas markets both upstream and downstream».

Dr. Nabil Abd Jalil, Applus+ Velosi CEO, stated, «this agreement will allow Applus Velosi to continue their strong global relationship with Royal Dutch Shell and will open considerable opportunities to build upon that relationship in new areas.»
