DNV GL, a certification body and classification society, has published what it says is the energy industry’s only Standard for the warranty approval of marine operations.
DNV GL on Tuesday published the Standard which deploys digital solution that provides users with information most relevant to a specific project.
DNV GL Standard DNVGL-ST-N001 Marine operations and marine warranty, documents design and operational requirements for the temporary phases in the development of offshore assets, including transportation by water. It covers the entire value chain, from fixed steel and concrete platforms and FPSOs to subsea operations, pipe and cable lay, and offshore wind, DNV GL said.
Kim Rolfsen, Global Service Area Leader – Noble Denton marine services, DNV GL – Oil & Gas, said: “DNV GL pioneered the concept of marine warranty surveying in the 1960s. Since that time, our legacy businesses have been the industry’s only organizations to continually produce industry standards for marine operations and warranty approvals. They have been followed by most marine contractors and even adopted by our competitors.”
Industry professionals can supply the details of the asset through MyDNVGL customer portal and the Standards Wizard will select information from DNVGL-ST-N001 Marine operations and marine warranty.
Mike Hoyle, Head of advanced engineering, Noble Denton marine services, UK, DNV GL – Oil & Gas, explains the benefits: “This avoids industry professionals having to sift through a 500-page Standard to look for information relevant to their project. The wizard generates a simple and clear document showing the elements of the Standard needed to get on with the specific job.”
Elisabeth Tørstad, CEO of DNV GL – Oil & Gas, said: “We support customers in their challenges with our dedicated service portfolio which is constantly updated to the changing business environment and technologies. I believe this new digital solution will help our customers to be even more efficient.”
DNV GL said that its new Standard, DNVGL-ST-N002 Site-specific assessment of mobile offshore units for marine warranty, will also be hosted on the company’s new Standards Wizard later this year.
