SKF USA Inc., the SKF Solution Factory in Houston, has been certified with ‘External Specialist Recognition’ by ABS (American Bureau of Shipping) to provide Condition Monitoring services to the offshore industry.
The achievement is significant due to the ABS ranking as one of the largest certification organizations in the world for the Offshore Oil & Gas and Marine Industry. The recognition follows a practical demonstration of ‘Condition Monitoring on Thrusters’ and a comprehensive quality audit of SKF Inc. by ABS.
“The ‘Certificate of Service Recognition’ from ABS is becoming a requirement for many companies when selecting a condition monitoring supplier and obtaining it is a notable achievement,” says Dave Staples, SKF Global Service Manager for traditional energy. “It was certainly worth our time and effort to work closely with ABS, to complete the approval process which is recognized by all drilling contractors and shipping companies.”
