Sertec obtains RINA approval for lightning-prevention devices

Sertec RINA

Sertec Marine’s range of CMCE lightning-prevention devices have been fully approved by approval body RINA, with Type approval Certificate ELE281223XG.

“The Sertec CMCE devices de-ionise the atmosphere around the vessel, using a patented design, first invented in 1918 by Nikola Tesla himself,” says Nick Cook, senior sales manager for Technical Marine Supplies (TMS), the official distribution partner for Sertec in the UK, Europe and Scandinavia. “Now we have RINA fully understanding and approving this certified technology, we look forward to being extremely busy with the OEM and mast-building clients across the UK and Europe.”

Cook continues: “With recent webinars, presentations to parties such as the IIMS, and exhibitions such as Seawork and METSTRADE all feeding back the desire for RINA approval, we are pleased that Mr Chifarelli, the founder and CEO of Sertec, agreed that this was a worthwhile approval.

“Having both the only intelligent lightning prevention system in the world, coupled with the only RINA-approved lightning prevention system, just helps to bestow huge confidence in the technology hidden within the devices”

Paraguay-based Sertec Marine specialises in developing technology that can offer protection against atmospheric discharges.

Stephen Horsley, sales director for Sertec adds: ““Marine lightning protection is subject to strict standards, and we are proud to have earned the RINA Approval, among other approvals. This recognition provides the marine industry with the assurance of Sertec’s quality and reliability.”
