In order to be able to sell such a newly developed refueling system internationally, it is not only necessary to carry out complex investigations such as bending and pressure tests in the development department. It is at least as important to have a special approval for the maritime sector. A product approval is handled by authorities such as Bureau Veritas from France or DNV GL (Norway).
To proceed with the first projects a Bureau Veritas approval is required which is issued in various steps.
Step one, the so-called "Approval in Principle" was granted to BRUGG Rohrsysteme GmbH on March 31, 2020. The second step, the complete type approval, will now be carried out until the second half of the year.
