4 September 2013 – South African condition monitoring specialist WearCheck recently expanded into West Africa with the opening of an oil analysis laboratory in Ghana. This laboratory is situated in Tarkwa, several hundred kilometres inland and west of the capital Accra.

The WearCheck network currently includes a presence in seven countries (South Africa, Zambia, India, Dubai, Zimbabwe, Namibia and now Ghana), and includes nine laboratories. Neil Robinson, managing director for WearCheck is confident that Ghanaian businesses will reduce operating costs by using oil analysis as a key proactive maintenance tool.

With endorsement from several international bodies, WearCheck maintains its status as the only laboratory on the African continent to have ISO 9001 quality certification, ISO 14001 environmental certification and ISO 17025 accreditation for its fuel and transformer laboratories. “Four of our team of seven diagnosticians have diagnosed over one million samples each.”
