DNV GL has published the standard for the warranty approval of marine operations. The standard deploys a 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 explained.
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.
“The new Standard combines best practice including legacy DNV’s strengths in technical and analytical detail, and legacy GL Noble Denton’s practical guidance on avoiding technical pitfalls.”
