LIFTING EQUIPMENT TESTING AND CERTIFICATION


Testing Introduction

NiGSA Energy coordinates onsite and off-site testing of equipment and structures for clients in any location, using water bags, dead weights and hydraulic testing machines specifically designed to produce the required proof loads for inspection and testing.

Benefits of testing with water bags

➢ Cost effective: water bags are an innovative solution to load testing across various industries, ensuring a streamlined testing process and thus saving in transport, storage and labour costs
➢ Versatility: the bags can be used in combination to achieve almost any load on different types of lifting equipment and specialised applications where conventional means do not allow for standard equipment and machine capability evaluation. The result is increased work efficiency and a faster turnaround time.
