Ankron is member of Global TestNet

Following a members vote which closed on 12th June 2020 Ankron Water Services is now a member of Global TestNet.

The Global TestNet is an organization involved in land-based and shipboard testing for the certification of BWMS including type approval, commissioning and Vessel General Permit.

Global TestNet promotes comparable and accurate test results on the performance evaluation of technologies and methodologies to control the risk of bio-invasion and harmful species introductions by shipping, through an open exchange of information, transparency in methodologies and advancing the science of testing.

Erik Köster: “We are very happy to join the testing expert group and contribute with our experience and knowledge. I believe it is more important than ever for the industry leaders to cooperate and speak with one voice to improve testing and corresponding regulations like commissioning testing, VIDA and method validations.”

Thanks to Guillaume Drillet, Chairman and Tim Fileman, Secretary for the effort and kind discussions in the past month and to all members for accepting us.
