Vibration, dynamics and noise (VDN) is a Wood Group service capability and specialized engineering consultancy that helps you avoid vibration, reliability and noise problems.
We provide engineering services for new projects or brownfield modifications, conduct inspections, and solve field vibration problems (troubleshooting). We assist in the design of compressor or pump systems, and of the piping system.
One of Wood Group's strategic initiatives was to build the world's leading capability in the area of vibration, dynamics and noise. In less than 12 months, this vision became a reality with the acquisition of BETA Machinery Analysis and SVT Engineering Consultants (Australia), coupled with the creation of our advanced engineering team in the UK.
These three organizations now work closely together as the vibration, dynamics & noise (VDN) service capability. With more than 230 engineering specialists in 11 offices around the world, the VDN team is a truly global operation with an industry-leading position based on its niche range of services, software solutions, industry research and technical authorities. To ensure a complete solution, VDN works as a trusted advisor to the owner’s staff, its Engineering Consultant, OEMs and equipment packagers.
VDN forms part of Wood Group's overall Asset Integrity Solutions service line which expands to include all-of-facility integrity management, maintenance solutions and inspection services.
VDN has offices in Houston, Pittsburgh, Calgary, Southampton, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Kuala Lumpur, Beijing, Perth, Melbourne and Brisbane; with application and field support in the Middle East and Africa.
|We've come a long way since our early days troubleshooting vibration problems in 1967|
We've built on this experience, and over the past four decades, VDN has become a premier engineering consultancy in the highly specialized field of vibration/dynamics.
