Shipbuilding/offshore - environmental simulation

Our global customers in the offshore and shipbuilding sector value our focus and our expertise in the field of environmental simulation. Phoenix Testlab works with the most influential classification societies, such as DNV GL, ABS, BV, LR, PRS, NK and RINA and performs tests according to their requirements. If your device meets the requirements of your selected classification society, it is then certified by this society. Phoenix Testlab is therefore also your ideal partner for qualifying existing industrial products for shipbuilding.

The design of the environmental laboratory shows that complete components can be tested at Phoenix Testlab for vibrations, temperature, and leak-proof properties.


Accreditations: DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025:2018
Certifications: DIN EN ISO 9001:2015 and DIN EN ISO 14001:2015
Recognition: Federal Maritime Shipping and Hydrography Authority; Lloyd´s register sublab for the USCG, DNVGL Sublab for the USCG regarding to tests for balast water management systems

Monitoring systems

Test object control and monitoring systems; electric, pneumatic, and mechanical tests are performed at Phoenix Testlab as part of Monitoring & Bench Design.

Customer-specific applications are part of our daily work. Phoenix Testlab uses proven elements for this task. Depending on the task, they are designed for a vibration test under temperature and climatic conditions or for a dedicated temperature change test.

Monitoring instruments are selected in close cooperation with our customers. Within a very short period of time, actuation equipment for locking systems (power window components) or electrical load change test stands for high-current consumers can be implemented, for example.
