MECHANICAL EQUIPMENT INSPECTION
A large number of manufacturing services now occur in locations overseas. As a result, large quantites of mechanical and electrical manufacturing components are outsourced to vendors and sub-vendors all over the world. With little history of working with these overseas firms and facility locations, owners and end-users find it a requirement to include third-party inspection and oversight as a part of their scope of work on large projects. Working in concert with owners, end-users and equipment vendors / manufacturers, Bureau Veritas provides the peace of mind to clients, assuring them that components are fabricated according to all governing standards and specifications in absence of the client physically witnessing the process first-hand.
What is Shop Inspection of Industrial Equipment?
Shop Inspection of Equipment involves inspecting the items and components during the manufacturing stage. This is the most convenient and cost-effective way to determine whether a product, service, process, piece of equipment or installation complies with expressed needs, expectations, applicable regulations and other specific requirements.
Bureau Veritas' inspection activities typically address design review, material verification, welding operations, dimensional accuracy, visual inspection and non-destructive evaluation of castings at the foundry and large valve weldments.
