Ocean Safety said it has been busy since gaining Lloyds Register approval to carry out hydrostatic pressure testing in accordance with TPED (Transportable Pressure Equipment Directive) and things are only set to get busier. During the past year Ocean Safety has noticed a steady increase in business, ranging from fire protection and service companies including Basingstoke Fire, Griffin Fire, Resmar and Wessex Fire, as well as from their core maritime customer base.

Don Hawkins of Resmar, one of Ocean Safety’s long standing customers comments, “I have worked with Ocean Safety for a number of years and have had a large amount of CO2 cylinders and extinguishers refilled, tested and refurbished by them. Their attention to detail from start to finish has always been superb. The management and service engineers not only have very high standards, but the ability to provide an efficient and timely turnaround to adhere to my tight schedules. This includes some rather nasty night and weekend jobs.”

Ocean Safety’s gas workshop pressure test and refill large numbers of cylinders for many major ship managers and owners including the R.N.L.I., Wilhelmsen Ship Services and Meachers Logistics. The workshop, based in Saxon Wharf, Southampton also tests and builds all of the cylinders involved in the manufacture of its own liferafts.

Steve Bockett, Ocean Safety’s Servicing Manager, concludes “This is welcome business on top of the recent good news from Wilhelmsen and Resmar and a testament to the hard work and dedication given by my team. Ocean Safety is very well placed in terms of location and its reputation in the industry. We pride ourselves in the ability to provide an excellent service, as well as being flexible in our approach when working with customers.”
