PEM Adds BV Certification

Power Engineering & Manufacturing, Ltd. has just added BV certification for the Liquid Natural Gas industry. PEM manufactures gearboxes used to run LNG pumps, which are coming into use in the shipping industry as changes in emission standards mean that commercial ships are using alternative fuel sources in American ports.

BV certification covers products and their components, as well as services, systems and people. It also provides assurance of conformity to specific requirements. The certification process includes onsite audits, standardized testing, and inspections by the certifying body. Regular audits allow companies to maintain their certification.
