DNV GL launches new subsea section

Offshore staff

ABERDEEN, UKDNV GL has launched a new subsea section in Aberdeen in response to the region’s expected growth in the subsea sector, which is reportedly set to quadruple in size, with projected annual revenues of £85 billion ($138 billion) by 2020. Martin Fowlie will head the new unit.

The creation of the new subsea section comes follows the announcement earlier this month by DNV GL about a new standard for certification of subsea equipment and components. It is thought that major efficiencies will be the resultant benefit of the standard, by means of streamlined quality control and manufacturing processes.

DNV GL also has a number of joint industry projects (JIPs) under way to standardize and streamline efficiency issues in the subsea industry. A recent cooperation project related to subsea documentation seeks to present a minimum unified set of documentation requirements for all major subsea components. Another current project addresses common specifications for steel forgings.
