DOF Keeps Fleet in DNV GL Class

The offshore energy service provider DOF and DNV GL have recently signed a global frame agreement.

Reportedly, the agreement will see DOF keep its entire fleet of 70 vessels in class with DNV GL, as well as launching a cooperative effort to identify and realize efficiency gains and cost savings.

The agreement covers certification of management systems, certification of DOF Subsea according to ISO standards, testing of wire conditions, and Emergency Response Services (ERS), as well as the classification of the entire DOF ASA fleet.

Additionally, DOF and DNV GL will work together to improve the efficiency of surveys on DOF vessels, as well as examine the potential for gains in fuel efficiency, software change management and other cost savings.

“I am pleased that together with DNV GL we have established a common understanding for how to optimize our maintenance and certification processes, reducing time and resources spent while ensuring quality of our operations. The outcome of this agreement will be an important contribution in making our operations more sustainable,” says Mons S. Aase, CEO of DOF ASA.

“We have a close relationship with DOF, and our future joint activities will help us to further improve the safety and efficiency of their fleet. Beyond this, working with an innovative partner like the DOF Group represents a great opportunity to drive progress in the sector as a whole,” says Knut Ørbeck-Nilssen, CEO DNV GL Maritime.
