DNV KEMA Sells Non-Destructive Testing Services Unit to 3angles, Inc.

BURLINGTON, MA--(Marketwire - Feb 27, 2013) -  An agreement has been finalized for the sale of DNV KEMA's Americas Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) business to 3angles, Inc. (3angles). This strategic initiative enables DNV KEMA to grow its core generation advisory and implementation services in energy, while maintaining a partner that can deliver the NDT-specific testing services many projects require. 

Hugo van Nispen, COO, DNV KEMA Americas, explains: "3angles will be a close DNV KEMA Partner. This move gives the NDT organization the singular resource focus it requires to stay at the front of the pack, which benefits both DNV KEMA and our clients."

Historically, the NDT service line delivered best in class turbine related testing and inspections for the power generation industry. The client base includes turbine manufacturers, utilities and individual plant sites, steam path engineering consultants and specialized turbine service shops. We anticipate that 3angles will continue to focus on delivering client satisfaction and high quality engagements.

3angles is led by Joop Kraijesteijn, who spent the past 12 years with DNV KEMA. Joop is careful to note: "This is the beginning of a powerful partnership between the two firms, one that allows DNV KEMA to continue its leadership in generation advisory services, while strengthening the NDT services now handled by 3angles -- together customers will reap the benefits of both companies."
