The audit was carried out at the offices of SBM and GustoMSC in Rotterdam.
Background for the audit
The background for the audit is that the load-bearing structures on Yme are nearing completion, and that TENAS has applied for an Acknowledgement of Compliance (AoC) for the facility.
During this audit, we focused on documentation related to parts of the structure which have not been audited previously.
Purpose of the audit
The purpose of the audit was to make sure the construction safety documentation was in compliance with the regulations. We reviewed the documentation for one leg, one tank in the hull, one tank in the oil storage facility, one riser and one jack-up system.
We focused on documentation from the fabrication phase, geo-technique, weights and compliance with the construction regulations of the Norwegian Maritime Directorate.
Result of the audit
We identified non-conformities in relation to the regulatory requirements in connection with insufficient documentation of compliance with the maritime regulations and a lack of first year inspection of load-bearing structures.
Furthermore we identified improvement items in connection with insufficient documentation of the construction phases.
