The contract is for two years with a two-year extension option.
Lindsay Anderson, Head of Sales – Quickflange™ at ICR, said: “We are delighted to secure this contract with TAQA, who we have been working with for almost 10 years. Quickflange™ offers clients permanent repair options minimising downtime or the need for hot work permits, making it a cost effective and efficient way of performing repairs.

With an extensive range, Quickflange™ is a safe, cost-effective and efficient solution generating an 80% time saving over traditional welding enabling the technology to be used as an emergency solution or for any planned maintenance and repair work.
