Tekmar Energy Gets API Certification

Tekmar Energy has achieved independent approval for the design and manufacture of its PU bend restrictors for compliance to the American Petroleum Institute’s (API) specification for flexible pipe ancillary equipment.

The verification comes after undergoing a 2-year certification program with Lloyds Register.

The process included; long-term material qualification, quality and manufacturing audits, review of the design methodology and witness of the verification testing to ensure Tekmar’s practices meet with the requirements of API17L.

The majority of the product testing was conducted in Tekmar’s new test facility in Newton Aycliffe, County Durham, utilizing the recent investment of a 750kNm bend test rig that was installed earlier this year, the company explained..

Charlie Sullivan, head of Subsea Sales & Strategy at Tekmar said, “We are excited to receive this independent qualification, which will allow us to provide an extended range of competitive products to both new, and existing, customers in challenging market conditions.”
