International Conference & Exhibition on Advanced Techniques of “Inspection, NDT & Monitoring (INM 2017)”

18-19th August’2017, The Grand Hotel, Vasant Kunj, New Delhi (India)

Welcome you all to AIM & INM

Asset Integrity Management (AIM) and Advanced Inspection & Nondestructive Testing are vital in managing Industrial assets effectively to gain maximum value, profitability and returns while ensuring smooth operation of the plant without any failures, leaks, accident’s, unplanned shut downs, maintaining Integrity, Safety & Reliability of the Assets

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 concepts of AIM (i.e. design, technical and operation integrity) is moving along with the approaches to Operational Excellence, Corrosion Control & Monitoring, Advanced Inspection & NDT techniques, Risk Based Inspection & Maintenance, Failure Mode Effect and Criticality Analysis (FMECA), and Maintenance Planning of static process equipment, rotating equipment, mitigating the challenges caused by human factors, effective project management strategies and etc.

Around the globe, asset owners are facing major challenges to maintain aging assets and to ensure their reliability. Therefore, Advanced Inspection & Nondestructive Testing plays an essential role to ensure reliable operation and to meet the increasing world energy & growth demands.

To attain these major challenges, two concurrent events are planned to conduct on “Asset Integrity Management(AIM 2017)” and “Inspection, NDT & Monitoring Techniques (INM 2017)” on 18-19 August in Hotel Grand, New Delhi, India. The AIM 2017& INM 2017 are the only Technical Conference in India, designed to address the main challenges in asset management and to help you effectively manage your equipment so that you achieve long term plant reliability, efficiency, safety and profitability. The conference provides an effective platform for Asset Integrity, Inspection & NDE, Corrosion, Operation & Maintenance professionals from all over the world to interact, share and exchange their experiences. We welcome you all to be an integral part of these initiative.


Technical Conference

International Conference & Exhibition on AIM 2017 & INM 2017 is the only initiative in India to conduct a technical summit-solely on Asset Integrity Management& Industry oriented Advanced Inspection, NDT & Monitoring Techniques.
