TDD - Training and Inspection for the Energy Industry

TDD supports oil, gas and process related companies world-wide in order to achieve a greater workforce competence through assessment, personnel training and self development of personnel. The core company managers have between them more than 50 years experience in the oil, gas and process industry and hold training and development qualifications, to ensure use of best practice at all times.

TDD provides Electrical and Training services for the energy industry

Based in Aberdeen Scotland, the oil capital of Europe, TDD was set up in 2000 to handle the increasing international requirement for competence and training support services. The main focus of TDD at this time is the ever-increasing need for an up to date Hazardous Area Equipment Register (HAER) and maintenance of any faults found with electrical or instrumentation equipment on a company's asset.


Failure to rectify any serious faults found can result in loss of life or injury to company personnel and/or serious damage to asset integrity, as has been shown in major accidents across the globe in recent times.

Providing Ex Inspection & Maintenance for assured asset integrity

Ex inspection within TDD Ltd has expanded greatly and we are now in a position to provide Ex inspection and maintenance across the globe. Our Compex certified Ex team are currently working on offshore and onshore installations in various parts of the world and have gained vast experience in different situations regarding Ex inspection.


Alongside visual inspections, the team also carry out detailed inspections and, if required, maintenance on faults. During the visual Ex inspection, we will create or update a Hazardous Area Equipment Register (HAER), giving the client quick reference to each item inspected and also detailing faults found.

Electrical training in potentially hazardous locations

TDD also provides Electrical training courses that go hand in hand with our Ex Inspection and Maintenance. We provide training to various positions within the electrical and instrumentation teams present on the clients site. This training is designed to increase the competence and confidence of those working directly in potentially dangerous areas onsite.


Our training is tailor-made to the client requirements and all training will be done on equipment that is currently used onsite, giving greater confidence to the employees. Our main Electrical training courses are as follows;

  • Electrical Equipment in Potentially Hazardous Areas
