A successful Factory Acceptance Test for actuators at the Ooigem lock

Renovation Lock Ooigem actuators ADE-werk Factory Acceptance Test

A successful Factory Acceptance Test

Recently, a successful factory acceptance (FAT) took place for the ADE actuators that we supply during the renovation of the Ooigem lock. During a factory purchase, the acuators are tested in the presence of our customer on the predetermined specifications.

A FAT purchase is always of great value, both for the customer and for us. By thoroughly testing everything in advance, we ensure that the final installation of the actuators is much faster.

Project lock Ooigem

The Ooigem lock is located in the Roeselare-Leie canal (BE), an important waterway connection for the companies behind it. The lock will be completely renovated in 2023. ATB Automation supplies the actuators for the lock gates and bypass sewers, on behalf of Fa Vandezande from Diksmuide (BE)

Would you like to know more about this project, and why a FAT is so important for these types of projects? Sales engineer Robert Vermoolen talks about it in his blog.
