Intetek's new petroleum & fuel test service laboratory in Birsfelden Harbor covers the Rhine from Switzerland to the North Sea

With the expansion of testing and inspection services at Birsfelden, Intertek continues to build upon the services already offered along the industrialized areas of the Rhine river, known in German as the “Rheinschiene.”

The laboratory is located at the Birsfelden Rhine harbor, and is focused on testing petroleum, fuels and chemicals. A further lab expansion is planned towards the end of 2012, enabling Intertek to offer a full spectrum of services for quantity and quality assessments of liquid petroleum refined products.

Rainer Mast, Intertek Germany Country Manager, stated, “The new lab and inspection location in Birsfelden is the 3rd Intertek Switzerland lab and inspection facility for fuel and oil testing, adding to our existing locations in Schlieren and Geneva. The new facility expands our expertise in the region, supporting Rhine river trade in petroleum and fuels."
