The first certification scheme of its kind for smoke control systems has been announced by Warrington Certification Ltd working with the Smoke Control Association. The scheme provides further credibility for installers of fire safety systems, and reassurance to specifiers and designers of the level of safety being applied.
A workshop in support of a European mass transit initiative to develop new approaches in fire safety engineering was staged by the UK partners Exova Warringtonfire and BRE Global. The TRANSFEU event - held at Exova Warringtonfire headquarters - brought together some of the most eminent fire safety experts in surface transport in Europe at a milestone in the project’s delivery.
Exova, the world’s largest dedicated testing group, has made a significant investment in its weld testing capability in Europe, strengthening the servicing offering to its oil and gas industry.
The 205k € investment in the Netherlands’ Spijkenisse lab will mean that Exova can offer an enhanced Immersion Ultrasonic Testing (IUT) which forms part of Automatic Ultrasonic Testing (AUT) validation process.
The world’s largest dedicated testing group Exova has enhanced its unique service offering in water treatment testing with an investment in equipment, sample drop-off points and its dedicated courier service.
A strong start to 2012 from oil and gas testing firm, Exova has led to five new appointments in its UK-based team. The recruitment has been driven by a successful start to the New Year, with the Teesside, Aberdeen and Edinburgh laboratories winning key project contracts with global oil majors such as Chevron.
