Marlin B platform is the latest platform to be installed in Bass Strait as part of the Kipper Tuna Turrum Project back in 2013. Instech Group was provided the scope to provide a heat tracing upgrade of the gas piping and associated equipment which had been shown to experience hydrate issues leading to loss of oil and gas production on the platform. Instech Group also designed and supplied a new heat tracing distribution board including new DCS input modules to allow the new heat tracing circuits to be monitored on a new DCS screen including heat tracing circuits and surface temperature of the heat tracing. This work was completed ready for the 2018 winter period which has proven to provide a more reliable oil and gas production on the platform.
The new heat tracing distribution board was supplied to Instech Group by Advanced Controls with the installation work completed by UGL/WOOD and Balec.
Instech Group also provided the heat tracing engineering detail design for the new 450 Line project and other process line and equipment heat tracing.
To ensure Instech Group are located in close proximity to their main clients, Instech Group has moved to a new location in the Melbourne CBD. The new office address is:
Level 2, 10-16 Queen St, Melbourne, Vic, 3000.

Instech Group has recently completed an upgrade of their quality management system with the successful ISO9001 accreditation acheived. This successful achievement was carried out with commitment from the Instech Group general manager Paul Roberts with a major contribution from their external consultant Mr Neil Dunbar.
Paul Roberts commented that with the ISO9001 accreditation, Instech Group look forward to the implementation of future projects using the recently upgraded quality system. This project has highlighted the importance of the quality system to ensure all our clients will be provided with the highest quality of services delivered.
The existing AusNet Services City Gates at Coburns Road, Milton and Railway Ave, Corio have been successfully upgraded with the latest pressure regulators. These new pressure regulators allow for future reliable operation of gas pressure to the nearby town ships with the ability for the SCADA system to remotely adjust the down stream pressure setpoint. Comdian Infrastructure commented that the piping spools where pre-tested in their workshop on air to ensure the pilots controlling the pressure regulators where fully tested and proven to be operational before the old units were removed and the new spools (complete with new regulators) were installed. These new spools fitted perfectly once the old spools and regulators were removed. The detail design of the se two site pressure regulator upgrades were carried out by Instech Group using their highly experienced designers.
