InterMoor Receives DNV’s Mooring Chain Inspection Certification (USA)

InterMoor Inc., an Acteon company, has extended its capabilities and service range by becoming the first US-based company to achieve certification under Det Norske Veritas (DNV) 413: Service Suppliers Engaged in Renewal Survey Examination of Mooring Chain Intended for Mobile Offshore Units.

This means that InterMoor Inc. can now inspect, certify and recertify mooring chains and related components such as connecting links and wire rope for mobile offshore units that have or will have DNV classification (DNV-OSS-101 and 102). There is also scope to include water blasting of chain, visual inspections, measurements and mechanical and non-destructive testing.

Such certification shows that InterMoor Inc. has qualified and certified inspectors as well as written procedures for training, performance, application, control, verification and reporting. Approval under the certificate is for three years, and renewal audits are conducted at the end of the period.

The service will be available in the Gulf of Mexico, Central and South America, and West Africa and will be headed by operations coordinator Bruno Amann. InterMoor Inc. currently has five qualified inspectors with plans for more in the near future.

“Certification extends the range of tasks that we can undertake and provides our customers with a more comprehensive, one-stop service from their mooring contractor,” said InterMoor global president, Tom Fulton. “InterMoor Ltd, through their ChainCo division, was already DNV accredited for chain inspection service. InterMoor Inc.’s certification compliments ChainCo’s by having more personnel at more locations capable of performing inspections and further consolidates InterMoor’s role as a global service provider for mooring chain and equipment inspection. Only a few companies in the world have DNV certification for this service. This is an exciting milestone for us and for the industry.”
