The Japan Power Engineering and Inspection Corporation (JAPEIC) was established in 1970, with contributions from the government, utility companies and manufacturers, as a highly specialized organization which provides inspection services to ensure safety of power plants in Japan. Our competence exists in our ability and experiences to evaluate and certify the safety of welding of boilers, pipes and peripherals which have to endure high temperature and high pressure in power plants.
For more than 40 years, JAPEIC has been engaged in inspection and research activities. Activities of JAPEIC are carried out by well-experienced inspectors and competent staff in Tokyo Head Office, Osaka Regional Office, two branch offices of Hiroshima and Fukuoka, and Yokohama Nondestructive Evaluation(NDE) Center.
JAPEIC is a registered safety management reviewer of thermal power plants in accordance with the Electric Utility Law of Japan. We provide major electric power companies and IPP with high quality review services which are required by the law to ensure safe operation of power plants. The reviews are submitted to the government for approval. We have the biggest share in this business in Japan.
We also provide engineering support services, especially welding inspection services, to thermal and nuclear power plants, including plant components which are imported from overseas to Japan. The components and materials of power plants have to abide by the strict regulations stipulated by the Electric Utility Law or the Nuclear Regulation Law. We have long and abundant experiences in support of welding inspection of thermal and nuclear power plant operators in Japan. Our highly trained inspectors include CWI and AI holders, and are ready to provide necessary engineering services to power plant operators and manufactures inside and outside Japan.
The NDE center conducts research and development on welding and nondestructive inspection, which include ultrasonic testing technologies, electromagnetic nondestructive testing technologies, welding engineering to improve reliability, etc. The detail of our R&D activities in the technical review is available on JAPEIC’s website.
The center also provides training courses in nondestructive inspection and welding technologies based on accumulated knowledge and expertise.
