Control Union Industrial Inspections becomes approved Container Certification Firm by ABS
Control Union Industrial Inspections (CUII), a global leader in industrial inspections for asset owners, has become an approved Container Certification Firm by ABS.
CUII has been approved to perform 2.5 and 5 yearly inspections on behalf of ABS, on offshore IMO tank containers as required by the International Maritime Dangerous Goods (IMDG) code.
After extensive training and assessment, CUIIs tank inspectors have become approved surveyors to perform all inspections and tests as part of the IMDG requirements. An extensive on-site assessment and audit on CUIIs inspection procedures and management system further facilitated the approval as granted by ABS until further notice.
“This ABS approval confirms our position as the preferred inspection company for offshore tank containers in the Netherlands.”, says CUIIs Operations Director Daan Bakkum. “This cooperation will allow us to serve our offshore tank container clients more efficiently by significantly decreasing the turnaround time for 2.5 and 5 yearly inspections. Our close proximity to the tank container owners will also save costs in travel and transport.”
Combined with the recent obtained DOT license in the United States and the superior expertise in offshore containers, CUII strengthens its position as the global leader in third party inspections and a ‘one stop shop’ for container fleet owners. Daan Bakkum adds: “We are very pleased to work with ABS on the global offshore tank container market and look forward to a fruitful cooperation exploring other markets and regions.”
