New Coal Sample Preparation Facility Set Up At ABP’s Humber International Terminal (HIT) in Immingham By Inspectorate International

14/01/14

Immingham, United Kingdom, January 15, 2014 – A new coal sample preparation facility has been set up at HIT in Immingham by Inspectorate.   Inspectorate is a wholly owned subsidiary of Bureau Veritas, one of the world’s leading independent testing, inspection and certification companies.

The sampling and preparation will be fully consistent with ISO 18283:2006.

The new facility will be operational from 1 February 2014, it will be staffed with Inspectorate employees and equipped with two QHS Hammermill crushers, a Retch SR300 Rotormill, drying ovens, and Gilson riffle dividers. From the initial bulk sample of several tons, our facility can rapidly produce representative laboratory samples of <0.2mm to test the coal quality for our customers.

Inspectorate believes that the on-site capability will help reduce turnaround times for Proximate Analysis significantly. This will be a major benefit to customers who need initial constituent readings before the material can be used to maximum efficiency.

Erwin Oosterveen, Inspectorate’s Solid Fuels Business Development Manager for UK and Northern Europe, said:

“ This major new development in on-site sampling should be tremendously helpful to the industry. It’s a one-stop shop for the energy industry that is convenient and quick. And that’s all backed up by the accuracy of testing and analysis for which Inspectorate International is renowned.

“ Our new Immingham facility complements Inspectorate’s (and its parent company Bureau Veritas’), existing large global network of coal and solid fuels sampling and testing facilities, which includes the USA, Canada, Russia, Colombia and  South Africa. The facility means we can now offer an end-to-end service to clients importing these products into the UK.

“ In time we can see the facilities we offer being extended to cater for more industry needs. Our main aim now, however, is to make sure that the new service gets off to a flying start. We are confident that it will and look forward to proving ourselves to clients.”
