Pictured is Onboard Marine’s Factory Acceptance Test (FAT) facility in Bolsward, Netherlands. Being prepared for FAT, this Muir ship-set combines our VRC 22 000 windlasses with VC 20 000 & VC 18 000 mooring capstans, destined for install in Holland on board a new build 88 metre yacht during April
While many Europe-based purchasing and project managers might appreciate visiting Australia to witness Factory Acceptance Testing (FAT) in our Tasmanian production facility, Muir’s commitment to high quality customer service has resulted in a strategic partnership with Dutch-based Onboard Marine for European based Factory Acceptance Testing (FAT).
To ensure a seamless delivery to our valued super yacht clients in Holland and Germany, Muir equipment is shipped to Onboard’s test facility in Bolsward, Netherlands where it is unpacked and inspected to ensure that everything has arrived safely from Australia. Onboard connect all cabinets and test the smooth running of the chain on their 2.5 metre high test rig. The facility can handle the largest Muir anchoring systems to suit vessels up to 150 metres.
Once Onboard have completed their arrival checklist then customers can visit to see the equipment in full operation and inspect all finishes. While Muir may be based in Australia, our partnerships in Holland and around the globe means that Muir is your local supplier, wherever you are.
