Mechanical engineering group, EnerMech, has been granted Government approval for its valves operation in Singapore.
The SINGLAS accreditation, awarded by the Singapore Ministry of Manpower, follows a £450,000 investment in new workshop facilities and recruiting a further six staff to the valves team.
In Singapore only accredited businesses are authorised to perform testing on pressure relief safety devices. SINGLAS approval confirms that EnerMech’s valves workshop and mobile test units consistently adhere to and comply with ISO 17025 guidelines and meets strict operational and safety standards.
In addition, the SINGLAS standard is recognised by accreditation bodies in many other jurisdictions, including Australia and the UK.
EnerMech general manager for the Asia-Pacific region, Steve Jones, said: “We now can offer a globally recognised test certificate for valves tested under our accreditation schedule.
“This gives clients in the Asia Pacific energy sector peace of mind that they will be receiving an assured quality on their tested assets and it also opens up opportunities for us to actively promote our services to markets where such accreditation is a prerequisite.”
EnerMech has 2000 staff working in 31 locations across world’s major oil and gas producing regions, and in addition to valves supply and services it offers six other business lines in cranes and lifting, process, pipeline & umbilicals, specialist training, hydraulic products and services, equipment rental and industrial services.
The company also has a presence in Australia, China, India, Malaysia and South Korea, and employs 380 staff across the Asia Pacific region.
