“DeepOcean are one of three SCIRM contractors, providing structural and pipeline inspection services together with ad-hoc SCIRM services, in the UK and Norway. DeepOcean should be recognised for a significant improvement in their safety performance. Through the implementation of a Safety Improvement Plan during 2012, improvements have been achieved in the areas of Lifting Safety, Project Safety Briefings, Site HSE Support, Subcontractor Safety Management and Communication of Safety Expectations. Continuous Safety Improvements have followed in 2013, with the implementation of a DeepOcean developed behavioural safety programme, proactive engagement on ROV leak reductions and an increase in the number & quality of safety observations” Regional President, Trevor Garlick, BP North Sea says.
Karl Magnus Minge, Project Director DeepOcean AS, received the Key Supplier Safety Award on behalf of DeepOcean. The Deep Vision and Rem Forza vessels, supported by the DeepOcean AS office and the offshore base in Haugesund, Norway, have been involved in projects for BP this year.
