SGS Awarded Quality Assurance Contract for India Transmission Line
SGS is pleased to announce that it has begun work on a new contract awarded by a major player in the power and energy sector in India for quality assurance and safety monitoring on the transmission line near Surat in India.
Awarded on March 19, 2012, the contracted works began at the start of April, and include the monitoring of all field activities and the pre-dispatch inspection of materials and equipment bought for the laying of the 440KV transmission line for the power transmission project in India.
Consisting of tower construction, the power transmission project also entails the overhead stringing of transmission lines and the laying of tower foundations. As the most experienced private sector player in Gujarat, the project owner was pleased to award SGS the 12 month contract due to SGS’s first-rate experience and competence in quality assurance and safety monitoring. With another three months pencilled in for the project, SGS anticipates further building on a professional relationship consisting of mutual trust and appreciation, having previously provided client satisfaction with its third party services for wind energy and infra projects in Gujarat, India.
With quality assurance, SGS ensures that materials, products, machinery, equipment and industrial facilities are manufactured and maintained in compliance with all specified and mandatory requirements, contractual specifications and quality standards. With its safety monitoring services, SGS also ensures that all activities conducted in the field comply with safety requirements and standards.
