Shipbuilding: Bureau Veritas opens laboratory in South Australia
Bureau Veritas has opened a testing facility close to Port Adelaide, the hub for Australian naval shipbuilding in South Australia.
The new laboratory, located in Regency Park, was officially opened by Steven Marshall, the Premier for South Australia, in a ceremony on May 11, 2021.
It is offering ISO 17025 NATA (National Association of Testing Authorities) accredited mechanical testing on state-of-the-art methods. This laboratory complements the Group’s existing operations within the state, where 300 staff have been supporting key industry sectors including General Fabrication, Mining and Oil & Gas for more than 50 years.
Alongside the new laboratory, a naval liaison office has been established by Bureau Veritas to provide dedicated support for the Royal Australian Navy.
The new capacities demonstrate the commitment of Bureau Veritas to support defence and naval shipbuilding in Australia.
