CM department receives ABS certification

Condition Monitoring department in Karsten Moholt has received American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) approval.

Last march Karsten Moholt As was the first company in the world to be certified by Det Norske Veritas (DNV) for condition monitoring services for mobile offshore units. Now Karsten Moholt is the first company to have received the certifications from two classification societies – DNV and ABS.

In September of 2012 Karsten Moholt received a certificate of service recognition from ABS for condition monitoring services including vibration analysis, thermography and high voltage testing.

According to Condition Monitoring department Director Tommy Glesnes this certificate will most benefit our customers in shipping and drilling making it much easier to start using condition based maintenance. In cases where acceptance by the classification society is required, it is easier and faster for the customer to use a company that has already been approved by classification societies.

According to Tommy Glesnes, some customers have some ships that are classed by DNV and some ships that have a class assigned by ABS and therefore it is a big advantage that Karsten Moholt AS can handle both classes. In addition, the fact that Karsten Moholt has obtained certifications from both classification societies is a prove of company’s procedures and services being of the highest quality.
