BMT Asia Pacific (BMT), a subsidiary of BMT Group, the international maritime design, engineering and risk management consultancy, has opened its first-ever environmental testing facility in Jakarta, Indonesia.
Certified to ISO17025 by Komite Akreditasi Nasional (KAN), Indonesia’s national accreditation body, the new laboratory provides high-quality technical testing services for BMT’s Oil and Gas clients including noise, ambient air quality, water quality, toxicity and emissions. Previously outsourced, these technical testing services have been brought in-house to better support BMT’s world-class environmental assessment and consenting offering, which includes statutory compliance, environmental impact assessments and decommissioning studies.
Johnny Tjea, president and director of BMT Asia Pacific Indonesia comments: “Opening the new laboratory represents a natural progression for BMT’s growing environmental study and monitoring business. Our customer relationships are built on trust, and through the development of our own testing operations and facilities, we harness the internal control necessary to deliver consistent, high quality service across our growing customer base.”
Backed by experienced in-house environmental experts, training programmes and rigorous QA processes, the laboratory operates according to industry standards. This is particularly important in light of increasingly stringent Government regulations for environmental monitoring.
