On November 1, 2023 IVT Inspections NV has become part of the TÜV AUSTRIA Group. IVT Inspections NV started in 1993 initially with camera inspections and thermographic cameras. Soon they bought the first IRIS system at the request of their customers. At the time, it was still an analogue system. Since the early days they serve as critical service provider during turn arounds in the petrochemical and chemical sector. Steadily over the years the customer base has grown to five IRIS teams. Further since the early 90’s IVT was assigned to visually inspect welds in clean pipe systems at pharmaceutical companies with their specialized video endoscopes.
Over the years the investments in specialized endoscopes has continued and currently there is a wide range of diameters and lengths up to 10 metres. And it does not stop with endoscopes, there have investments in several camera systems for pipeline and tank inspection with both ATEX and non-ATEX systems and drones for the visual investigation of confined space.
