Back in 1993, the founding members of the Cokebusters team worked on the first mechanical decoke in Europe. Keen to find a way to prove the process worked, they began research and development of a new “Smartpig” in the late 1990s and the first patent application was made in May 2000.
Having already accrued over a decade of experience in the field, Chairman John Phipps MBE incorporated Cokebusters Ltd. in April 2005 bringing “pigging” and tube inspection together under one roof. The company has been going from strength to strength ever since and is still the only option for clients seeking this combined service. Our team of engineers and operators continuing to develop innovative solutions which enable us to best serve our clients around the world.
“We are getting better all the time. We’ll continue using our experience and revenue to invest in research and development as we help make the energy industry cleaner and more efficient, develop export performance and create good quality employment opportunities.”
