DNV GL will verify that the new infrastructure built for the BHP Trion project is compliant with local and global safety, as well as other requirements. The Verification Body and Classification contract specifies DNV GL, the leading independent expert in risk management and quality assurance, to participate in design review activities and site surveillance during construction, commissioning, and installation of the floating production unit (FPU).

DNV GL, in collaboration with TechnipFMC, has published the oil and gas industry’s first recommended practice (RP) on how to build and quality-assure digital twins. This sets a benchmark for the sector’s varying approaches to building and operating the technology.

DNV GL led a pilot project with Aker BP to remotely perform inspections on three of their offshore cranes on the Norwegian Continental Shelf. In line with Aker BP’s strategy of minimizing its operational carbon footprint, DNV GL performed remote safety inspections of one box boom pedestal crane on the Valhall Flank West and two knuckle boom cranes on the Skarv field, both as part of annual surveys.

DNV GL and FPSO specialist Bluewater are undertaking a pilot project to use hybrid digital twin technology to predict and analyze fatigue in the hull of an FPSO in the North Sea.

Società Gasdotti Italia (SGI) has commissioned DNV GL to assess the feasibility of gradually switching Italy’s second-largest gas network from natural gas to renewable gases including hydrogen. The study will support SGI’s ambitions to fully decarbonize the delivery of energy to Italian homes and businesses through its gas network.

Three international organizations specializing in technology research, testing, advisory services, and standardization have joined forces to find new ways to accelerate the adoption of carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) technology in emissions-heavy industries. DNV GL, SINTEF and Technology Centre Mongstad (TCM) have signed a memorandum of understanding to further develop carbon capture, utilization and storage technologies to make full-scale CCS a reality globally.

DNV GL has presented Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) with a general approval for ship application (GASA) for a new concept of very large crude carriers (VLCCs) with a centreline oil-tight longitudinal bulkhead. The new design will reduce potential damage and operational risk by featuring a simpler structural arrangement, loading patterns and piping arrangements. Vidar Dolonen, DNV GL Regional Manager for Korea & Japan, delivered the certificate to Seung Ho Jeon, Executive Vice President of HHI at the shipyard group headquarters in Seoul.
