Building a ship or a platform for oil and gas exploration is always done under classification of an independent third party such as Lloyd’s register. Party’s like Lloyd’s provide rules and regulations for the construction of ships, marine structure and equipment on board. They oversee the construction and follow the life cycle of a ship or platform with frequent checks. Eventually these constructions receive a classification and are registered. That way users, owners and insurers have guarantees for a reliable construction.Used parts that do not have their own specific approval, are eventually included in the final certificaton process. It is a major advantage when supplied parts have already an own approval. It saves time and costs for the party building the construction. Our hydraulic hoses from manufacturer Alfagomma have many type-approvals. They have common hydraulic hose type approvals like from Det Norske Veritas (DNV), American Bureau of Shipping (ABS), Germanischer Lloyd (GL), Bureau Veritas (BV), Nippon Kaiji Kyokai (NKK) and Registro Italiano Navale (RINA). Term is that the hoses are assembled by Imbema Cleton according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
