Siqura has reaffirmed its commitment to become a key player in the oil and gas market by securing an Achilles FPAL registration.
Siqura, a global supplier of advanced video surveillance solutions, today announced it has been registered by Achilles FPAL as a trusted partner for the oil and gas market. Achilles FPAL is an independent industry community matching buyers in the oil and gas sector with relevant suppliers.
The Achilles FPAL registration, which is only awarded after a rigorous pre-qualification process, ensures that suppliers working in high-risk and critical operations are sufficiently and independently audited to industry-specific standards.
Achilles encourages compliance with legislative and corporate standards by assessing suppliers’ capabilities and their financial, legal, health and safety, environmental and quality risks. It reviews data formats, cross-checks answers for consistency, validates responses against additional documents provided (e.g. insurance certificates) and uses feeds from trusted third-party providers for specialist data such as company registrations and financial records.
Only weeks before being registered by Achilles FPAL Siqura launched ExPLORE, a new range of explosion-protected surveillance cameras. Combining Siqura’s trademark reliability with an extremely robust exterior, ExPLORE cameras are the perfect choice for hazardous areas in the marine, oil and gas industry. The housing of these IP67-rated cameras is constructed of 316L electro-polished stainless steel, a corrosion-resistant alloy suited for use in harsh offshore and onshore environments. All models can be provided with certifications to meet different requirements worldwide, such as ATEX, UL and IECEx.
“We are very excited that our efforts to break into the oil and gas market have already been rewarded,” says Roger Decker, Managing Director at Siqura. “Our aim is to protect people and prevent downtime by letting our customers deal with incidents before they escalate. This proactive approach also applies to the way we do business. Our Achilles FPAL registration inspires confidence and allows prospective buyers to skip costly assessment procedures.” [www.siqura.com]
