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 (Det Norske Veritas), ABS (American Bureau of Shipping), BV (Bureau Veritas), LR (Lloyds Register), PRS (Polski Rejestr Statków), NK (Nippon Kaiji Kyōkai) and RINA (Registro Italiano Navale) 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, DNV, Sublab for the USCG (US Coast Guard) regarding to tests for balast water management systems
