AIRM 2020 — 4th International Conference & Exhibition on Asset Integrity & Reliability Management
07 Aug 2020 - 08 Aug 2020 • New Delhi, India
Matcorr Consultancy Pvt. Ltd.
Asset Integrity & Reliability Management (AIRM) is vital in managing Industrial assets effectively to gain maximum value, profitability and returns while safeguarding personnel, the community, and the environment. Many of the Offshore/Onshore Oil & Gas Production, Pipeline, Refineries, Petrochemical, CGD, LNG, Fertilizer, Power plants, Chemical/ Process Plants, Ship Building, Aerospace, Defence etc worldwide are operating beyond their nominal design life, raising concerns for potential loss of hazardous materials and adverse business impact. The understanding of Asset Management (AM) incorporates design, maintenance, inspection, process, operations, and management concepts since all these disciplines impact the integrity of infrastructure and equipment. The AIRM 2020 is the first and leading initiative in India, designed to address the main challenges in asset management and provide an effective platform for Asset Integrity, Reliability Assessment, Inspection & NDE Professionals, Operation & Maintenance, Risk Managers, Corrosion Control, Design & Process Engineers from all the major industries to discuss and exchange ideas to achieve long-term plant Integrity, Reliability, Safety and Efficiency.

Focus Areas:

- Asset Integrity Management (AIM)

- Reliability, Risk Based Inspection (RBI) & RCM

- Pipeline Integrity Management (PIM)

- Corrosion Control Management (CCM)

- Inspection Practices & Advanced NDT Techniques

- Operation & Maintenance Optimization

- Shut down Inspection & Preventive Maintenance

- Failure Analysis, Health Assessment, Remaining Life Assessment (RLA)
