Lloyd’s Register, Aker Solutions to collaborate under new global framework agreement

Lloyd’s Register and Aker Solutions will collaborate under a new global framework agreement to drive efficiency in engineering and subsea oil and gas developments.

The contract gives Aker Solutions access to all relevant services from the Lloyd’s Register Group, including inspection, compliance, certification, and advisory/consulting services in areas like risk management/HSEQ, engineering dynamics, asset integrity, drilling, wells, and reservoirs.

The first call off from the contract is already in place: a global project for international quality management system standard ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 (environmental) certification of Aker Solution’s Subsea division. The project will be carried out by LRQA – a division of the Lloyd’s Register Group and a professional assurance services organization specializing in management systems compliance and advice across a spectrum of standards, schemes, and customized assurance programs.

The Technology Qualification offered by Lloyd’s Register provides a route for companies to provide evidence that their equipment will function within specified operational limits and with an acceptable level of confidence. It aims to provide a step-by-step approach on how to develop and operate new technologies in a safe, reliable, and environmentally friendly manner.

The framework agreement is valid for three years with options for extension for a further two years.
