ICR Integrity (ICR) (Aberdeen, United Kingdom), a global provider of specialist repair, inspection, and integrity solutions to a diverse range of industries worldwide, has strengthened its leadership team with the appointment of Antonio Caraballo as director.
Caraballo is joining the company to support the global growth of its inspection and integrity management business and reinforce a multi-skilled engineering team. An esteemed industry professional, Caraballo previously led the multidiscipline integrity management division for INEOS’ Forties pipeline system while also acting as technical authority for the pipelines business.
According to the company, Caraballo has a strong track record of developing transformational change in organizations and processes.
As an internationally recognized service leader, ICR says it offers over 30 years of expertise in providing innovative solutions for the oil and gas, renewables, power, defense, and telecommunications sectors. In that capacity, Caraballo is expected to enhance market-leading products such as a newly launched, composite nondestructive testing (NDT) inspection technology.
This NDT technology is described as an industry first, providing operators with assurances in the integrity and long-term performance of composite repairs while leading to their life extension. Other benefits include reduced waste due to avoiding high carbon emissions that are associated with alternative technologies, such as steel replacement or welded sleeves installation.
“I’m delighted to join ICR at such an exciting time for the organization,” Caraballo says. “The ongoing development and adoption of our innovative solutions, including our OMNI digital asset management software, methane detection, and drone inspection offering, will undoubtedly add value and supports our clients’ net zero targets and safety performance"
Beyond his time at INEOS, Caraballo previously worked in project and integrity engineering roles in the United Kingdom and abroad for diverse companies such as GE Oil & Gas, Wood Group, and BP.
