Offshore – fabrication survey and commissioning

We leverage our 150 years of class experience to ensure the efficient control and smooth execution of your newbuilding project.

The latest generation of MOUs is challenging from a construction and commissioning point of view. This requires an overall expert project perspective, from design to completion, while engaging all parties involved.

Our offshore classification service meets the entire range of challenges facing an MOU newbuilding, using a dedicated project approach.

This approach includes a project team on site with a close link to our design approval team. We also define a risk-based survey plan, focusing on the project’s specific risk and taking into account the proffeciency of the yard,  the experience with the design and all other relevant elements.

During the commissioning process, we remain engaged in meeting the challenges. We are at your side to provide guidance and controlling support.

DNV is your reliable partner for your offshore newbuilding project fabrication and commissioning. This gives you:

  • Assurance that we focus on critical issues and monitor normal daily routines following our Recommended Practice on Quality Survey Planning
  • A timely heads-up, preventing costly production delays or changes
  • Expert guidance and insights, offering further efficiency and quality improvements beyond the completion of the ongoing project
  • Confidence to control the commissioning phase, avoiding delivery delays and future issues
