Shannon company receives EUSR accreditation for utility training courses

Tensile Testing Services has received EUSR accreditation.

A SHANNON-based business has recently received accreditation as an Energy and Utility Skills Register training centre.

Tensile Testing Services, a provider of polyethylene pipeline welding services, received the accreditation, which it says underscores its commitment to upholding industry standards in polyethylene (PE) pipeline welding and water hygiene training.

Established in 2006 by Joseph Birney and Richard Roberts, Tensile has developed training courses for the utility sector, including in the gas, water, power, and waste management industries.

The company has now received Energy and Utility Skills Register (EUSR) accreditation, which means that courses offered by the Shannon-based business will be recognised within the utility services sector.

EUSR accreditation, operated by Energy and Utility Skills, serves as an independent platform for establishing and maintaining standards within the utility sector.

Helen Downes, Shannon Chamber CEO, said that Tensile’s new accreditation shows how important health and safety are within the utility sectors.

Ms Downes congratulated staff at Tensile and said that the achievement showed their continued commitment to “excellence and innovation”.

Following the accreditation, Tensile is now offering a range of courses for industry professionals such as electrofusion welding, butt fusion welding, water hygiene, hydrostatic pressure testing, and supervisor training.
