Worldwide DNV Certification

Anyone working in the offshore industry knows that safety is of paramount importance and more and more markets are starting to demand high standards with regards the quality and safety of offshore equipment. It's something that we've always recognised at Suretank, engineering only the highest quality products.  We're very proud of the fact that we're the largest manufacturer of DNV certified products in the world and the only company to develop all of its products to DNV certification.Having global standards, such as DNV, that offshore equipment must adhere to is extremely important in ensuring that standards remain high and it's encouraging to learn of developments in markets such as New Zealand where in the near future it may become mandatory for all offshore cargo carrying equipment to be certified to DNV2.7-1. Suretank has invested heavily in equipment and processes to ensure a high quality product is produced at ALL our factories worldwide and so we welcome any developments in this area.
