Côte d'Ivoire and Korea have adopted the Methodology of Detailed Visual Inspection Control (CID) for Natural Gas Vehicles (NNG) developed by Cetim in collaboration with GDF Suez.
Control of natural gas-powered vehicles is subject to special regulations in many countries. The objective of the Method of Detailed Inspection Control (CID), developed as early as 2002 by Cetim in collaboration with Gaz de France and under the aegis ofafGNV (French Vehicle Natural Gas Association), is to make this maintenance step indispensable, safer, simpler, less time-consuming and less costly.
These assets have attracted Ivorian companies(Petroci and Sotra)and the Korean company (TS).
In Côte d'Ivoire, Cetim experts accompanied GDF Suez to its Ivorian clients: the National Oil Operations Corporation of Côte d'Ivoire(Petroci)and the Abidjan Transport Corporation. The Centre's experts took charge of training the staff of these two companies in setting up the CID. Support for obtaining The Cofrend certification, Petroci and Sotra staff members were also offered. This certification will eventually enable them to carry out CID checks on a regular, planned and autonomous basis, possibly punctuated by follow-up audits carried out by Cetim.
The Korean TS (Transportation Security Authorities) has signed a contract with Cetim to apply this method on the 20,000 buses that run on the GNV in South Korea.
