Seatronics to Achieve Valeport Calibration Facility Reaccreditation




UK-based Seatronics is the first company to sign up to enhanced accreditation as a supplier of third party calibrations to the ROV and survey communities, globally. The enhanced accreditation is provided by manufacturer of oceanographic, hydrographic and hydrometric instrumentation Valeport.

Seatronics has established calibration facilities in Aberdeen, Singapore and Houston. The original calibration facility was established in Aberdeen in 2003 to manage Seatronics’ extensive range of Valeport assets. Since then, the facility has been extended to handle increased throughput and to support the growing demands of Seatronics’ customers requiring local third party calibrations. Following the success of the operation in Aberdeen, Seatronics replicated the facility in Singapore in 2005 and Houston in 2008.

Kevin Edwards, sales and marketing manager, Valeport, said that onitoring third party calibration facilities provifing services for Valeport products is important. Valeport’s standards and performance expectations are to be maintained, which is achieved through the annual audit scheme. Seatronics has demonstrated its capability, giving the confidence that Seatronics provides a qualified and accurate service.
