DNV GL Issues Digitalized Marine Warranty Standard

DNV GL today published Standard for the warranty approval of marine operations, the first to deploy 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.

Kim Rolfsen, Global Service Area Leader – Noble Denton marine services, DNV GL – Oil & Gas, said: “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.”

Industry professionals can submit details about the type of asset, operation and structural code, using the MyDNVGL customer portal. The company’s online Standards Wizard will then select the pertinent 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, said: “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.”

The new Standard DNVGL-ST-N002 Site specific assessment of mobile offshore units for marine warranty will also be hosted on DNV GL’s new Standards Wizard later this year, the company said.
