Hydrobolt is pleased to announce that it has gained NORSOK M650 rev 4 approval to supply Super Duplex fasteners.
NORSOK M650 (qualification of manufacturers of special materials) verifies that the manufacturer has sufficient competence and experience of the relevant grades, and the necessary facilities and equipment to manufacture critical component (fasteners) with the correct properties.
Business Development Director, Richard Barnes, explained that ‘the process of obtaining NORSOK M650 approval is rigorous and very technical. A big thanks goes to Pete Mulligan (Quality Director) who has worked extremely hard on the M650 project – his metallurgical background and knowledge of heat treatment have been paramount in the approval process. It now means that the doors have been opened for our sales team to target the Norwegian offshore projects.’
