Materials Engineering, Structural Integrity & Mechanical

INESCO is an engineering company specialized in the field of structural integrity and mechanical and
materials engineering, which allows advanced services in these fields to be offered to diverse sectors, but
mainly in the nuclear energy, petrochemical and Oil&Gas industries.

INESCO is at the forefront of prevention and control of structural and mechanical failures for the nuclear,
Oil&Gas, fossil, and pipeline industries.

INESCO undertakes monitoring, materials evaluations, aging analysis, remaining life assessments,
damage tolerance, and stress and failure analysis. Our expert staff, timely, accurate and reliable analysis
made INESCO a global leader in these services.
