International classification society RINA has certified the power generators which Aggreko provides for temporary marine use. The certification provides ship owners with the assurance that the generators meet all applicable SOLAS rules for temporary use on board a ship.
Pino Spadafora, Area Manager, RINA Services, says, “This certification delivers peace of mind for ship owners and ship operators that SOLAS rules are fully checked and complied with by the equipment providers. The RINA approval certificate on an Aggreko generator ensures compliance with on-board safety requirements.”
Maarten Martens, Business Development Manager, Aggreko Continental Europe, says, “This is a major step in the way we help our shipping customers meet SOLAS rules. This process will ensure faster and simpler delivery of containerised diesel power generators for planned or emergency projects.”
RINA certification of the generators and associated safety systems makes it simpler for ship owners and ship operators to comply with safety procedures when using a generator on board for a short or medium period.
