Sterlite Power's Optical Ground Wire (OPGW) facility in Silvassa has been granted a prestigious accreditation by National Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration Laboratories (NABL). This is for the first time that an OPGW laboratory in India has received this rating for testing OPGW cables, ACS Wires, Alloy Wires and Optical Fibres. With this rating, products manufactured by Sterlite Power in this facility can be used in user countries without the need for additional re-testing, resulting in cost savings.
Talking about the development, Pratik Agarwal, Group CEO Sterlite Power said, "For India to achieve its "Make in India" vision and supply products of the highest standards globally, the country needs 'state of the art' testing facilities. This accreditation is a step forward in that direction and towards playing a greater role in the global markets."
Manish Agarwal, CEO, Solutions Business, Sterlite Power said: "The accreditation by NABL gives our customers the assurance that the equipment used and product provided has passed the highest standards. This certification demonstrates our commitment to deliver reliable products and to constantly improve the development processes."
Valid for two year, till March 2020, the certificate establishes that the lab infrastructure operates at the highest standards for all tests conducted at the facility, including manpower, documentation, calibration and the Inter Lab Comparison (ILC) test.
