Exova, the global testing, calibration and advisory services provider, has agreed a strategic partnership with Endures in the Netherlands, previously known as the TNO Maritime Material Performance Center.

Endures’ Den Helder center is primarily focused on the marine and offshore industry, and its team of scientists oversees research and testing in microbiological corrosion through DNA analysis, bio and anti-fouling, and mechanical, chemical and electrochemical corrosion.

The center’s unique location provides direct access to natural sea water for offshore exposure and in-house simulation testing. As a C5M weathering location, testing is carried out in the harshest corrosion environment possible, bringing a competitive edge to the combined operation.

The strategic partnership further extends the comprehensive range of services available to Exova’s customers and forms part of a global network of specialist coatings testing and inspection laboratories worldwide.

Robin McGill, European Director for Oil & Gas at Exova, said, “This strategic partnership extends the range of technically demanding services that we can provide to customers in the marine, energy and oil and gas sectors. Endures has an enviable reputation and our combined teams will create unrivalled expertise in Marine, pipeline and protective coatings testing and inspection”.

Sibo Buter, Managing Director of Endures, added, “This is an exciting development for us and one which enables us to extend our current reach through Exova’s global network, providing new opportunities for both parties. We already have a long-standing relationship with Exova, and we look forward to developing our specialism together.”
