With the international commercial marine sector a key market for WhisperPower, the company is delighted to have been re-issued with its certification from the Russian River Register (RRR).
The certificate confirms that any products or technical services being offered for sale within the Russian Federation have met the highest safety and quality standards, so will help protect the property, lives and environment of its citizens.
The Russian River Register is a large and powerful autonomous federal institution which classifies and surveys ships and other floating assets. Since 1961, it has been a member of the International Association of Technical Survey and Classification Institutions (TSCI) and has bilateral agreements with 19 classification societies.
Currently, the number of vessels registered with the RRR is in excess of 23,000.
Products submitted for certification are assessed for safety and performance in official laboratories. Each new model is subjected to climatic and electromagnetic testing, thermomechanical measurements and a wide variety of other tests, some involving x-ray and ultrasonic penetration.
In addition, the supplier's manufacturing premises are subjected to a bi-annual inspection to ensure good management practice. The RRR's own quality management system is certified by the Russian GOST R ISO 9001 QMS Certificate of Conformity.
"The re-issue of our RRR certificate is an ongoing confirmation that we are reaching the highest standards possible by this demanding certification body," said Roel ter Heide, CEO and founder of WhisperPower. "We already supply a wide range of global maritime companies, such as Shell, Damen and Keppel, and now we can continue to expand our distribution of dependable power solutions within Russia’s huge waterway network.”
