Gas installation, repairs, alterations, and especially testing of LP gas systems for pleasure boats must follow specific rules and standards.
Since leaking gas accumulates in the bilge with no way to independently evaporate, and facilities on board marine vessels are particularly susceptible to corrosion, high demands are applied to the type of gas installation and the respective components. Requirements in this field are much more stringent than in the line of gas systems in homes or caravans/camping gear.
The DVGW (German Gas and Water Association) process sheet G 608 (EN ISO 10239) contains the requirements for LP gas systems on pleasure boats (up to 24 meters in length).
My Gas Safe registration number with the DVFG (German Association of Liquid Gas IS) is 0611488. As technical expert I am fully licensed to
- Install LP gas systems onto marine vessels,
- Alter existing gas systems,
- Test gas systems on board ship,
- Issue the test book and place the test badge.
I use this authorization and above all this expertise in the course of my surveys. I do not carry out orders that serve exclusively to test, change or install gas systems.

Due to the current situation (October 2020) I may be affected by my foreign assignments. There are no restrictions in Germany. In the Scandinavian countries and for example Italy, I can fulfill all orders, in other European countries (especially Spain, Croatia, the Netherlands and France) the situation has to be assessed according to region and daily situation.
