Early Stage Involvement

The Petroleum Safety Authority Norway (PSA) requires that all mobile offshore units operating in the Norwegian Continental Shelf must have a material handling plan. At Axess, our design review of offshore handling is aligned with NORSOK R-002, an international standard supported by Norwegian petroleum industry organisations. Implementing these technical requirements for lifting equipment at the early stage of design and construction phases allow us to deliver optimal solutions for safe and cost-efficient offshore operations.

Material Handling System

For the Norwegian petroleum energy sector, all items over 25kg which are expected to be moved during the lifetime of an installation need a dedicated mechanical handling plan. With our subsidiary, Axess Digital’s online material handling database, MHP, our clients can easily access individual equipment lifting plans for all items above 25 kgs. They can do so by searching the database, via the items’ serial numbers, wherever and whenever needed. The online database is a valuable tool to ensure continuity in operation and minimising downtime in the event of equipment failure or breakdown.
