Rope access Industrial services

BECA provides integrated industrial services using rope access including inspection, repair and maintenance using composite crews with multi-disciplined trades, experienced personnel, customized access optimization programs, and technicians that are either certified to IRATA standards.

To date BECA have performed Ropes access services in Africa & Middle East both onshore and offshore in a variety of in-service routine inspections to new fabrication projects utilizing a variety of rope access services including, but not limited to :

Integrated inspection and maintenance crews with rope access capabilities combine to be one of the most significant drivers of value resulting in reduced schedule, overhead and total cost.  We are a fully embedded contractor delivering both inspection and trades from ropes and have agreements with local trade organizations that allows us to deploy one crew with multiple trades who can support each other and deliver maximum efficiency.
Our capabilities include, but are not limited to, the following:


Our teams can handle even the most complex electrical projects utilizing rope access, or other access methods. Some typical scopes of work include:

  • Inspection and testing – Line resistance testing, Insulation visual inspection
  • Terminations
  • Cable pulling
  • Cable tray inspection and repair
  • Electrical heat trace
  • Repairs – Electrical panels, Junction boxes, Lighting (ballasts and bulbs)

Insulation & Asbestos Abatement

Our insulation services, combined with our access solutions, engineering capabilities and scalable composite crews, have allowed us to provide clients with an unparalleled turnkey experience on a wide range of projects. Acuren has full industrial insulation capabilities. We have insulation technicians across many teams and geographical locations that work on a variety of projects including:
New installation, repairs and removal

  • Piping, vessels, columns and tank insulation and cladding
  • Utilidoor and tank panel systems
  • Refractory repair
  • Asbestos abatement
  • Fireproofing and firestopping


  • Fittings
  • Flange and valve covers (hard and soft)
  • Insulation systems

Welding / Pipefitting

  • Steam trace
  • Valves, PSV install, replacements
  • Structural and pressure
  • Vessels and tanks
  • Pipe spool replacement
  • Patches and repairs
  • Wear plates

Hoisting & Rigging

We can custom engineer hoisting systems that can be placed without cranes to execute lifts into very high and tight locations. Past projects have included flare tip replacements in congested spaces, where crane access would have compromised turnaround schedules, and pipe span replacements where crane reach limitations made the project otherwise impossible.

  • Flare and incinerator stacks (repairs, installations, and removals)
  • Heavy lifting and hoisting

Painting & Coating

  • Protective coating (internal and external surfaces of tanks, vessels, and structural steel)
  • Bristle blasting, sand blasting and vacuum blasting
  • Lead paint abatement
  • TSA – Thermal Spray Aluminium


BECA utilizes an integrated services model to deliver a broad array of inspection services at heights.. Achieving the highest level of “Execution Efficiency” and cost savings requires composite crews with trades and inspection technicians working together to deliver the entire work scope.
Some typical inspection scopes of work include, but are not limited to, the following:

Remote inspection – sensor install, acoustic emission, stress analysis, UT probes
