Aquatic Engineering & Construction Ltd, an Acteon company, is working with DNV GL and other organisations in the subsea supply chain, on a Joint Industry Project (JIP) to develop a set of guidelines to be incorporated into new or existing DNV GL Offshore Standards or Recommended Practices. The guidelines will be, ‘The Development of Codes for Offshore Equipment for Cable and Pipe Laying – Phase 1.’

David Tibbetts, vice president, technology, Aquatic, said, “We were eager to get involved with this ground breaking project due to the lack of coherent standards for the specification, design, manufacture, procurement and approval of equipment intended for use in offshore cable and pipe laying operations. DNV approached Aquatic because we are the obvious supply chain choice, due to our market leading reputation, our extensive range of products, four decades of experience and our close working relationships with all of the leading contractors.

“The work involves engineering and technical experts from contractors and equipment manufacturers like Aquatic, collaborating in order to establish joint industry guidelines for our type of equipment, where at present nothing exists. Subject to satisfactory completion of the first two phases, a third phase undertaken by DNV GL will result in the publication of an Offshore Standard or Recommend Practice for cable/pipe laying equipment.”
