D3 upgrades decommissioning software

Offshore staff

LITTLEHEMPSTON, UKD3 Consulting has introduced an upgrade to its Decommissioning Assurance through Waste kNowledge (DAWN) system at this year’s Offshore Decommissioning Conference in St Andrews, Scotland.

DAWN is claimed to be the world’s only information management system for preparing materials inventories and managing waste throughout the decommissioning process.

It has been developed to ensure offshore decommissioning follows regulatory compliance. Following industry feedback, D3 Consulting upgraded the system to include comprehensive waste management protocols.

Director Martin Bjerregaard said: “These waste management protocols have been embedded into the system and provide supply chain contractors with guidance for managing waste and materials during decontamination, dismantling, appropriate PPE, waste storage prior to dispatch and options for recycling, reusing and disposal of waste.”

D3 is typically involved at front-end planning and engineering for decommissioning projects.
