Offshore Infrastructure Operations and Maintenance
Our operations and maintenance services help ensure that your offshore infrastructure performs properly, safely and achieves your economic objectives throughout its service life
Operations and maintenance activities eliminate and reduce a variety of technical issues and constraints that prevent offshore infrastructure from performing properly and achieving sustainability. For a project to achieve economic success it’s important for owners and operators to maintain reliable day-to-day operation and respond safely to planned and unplanned events and interruptions. Even the most resilient offshore infrastructure cannot operate efficiently without being properly maintained with periodic inspections, repair and maintenance during its service life. Strategic thinking about your offshore infrastructure’s operations and maintenance programme is a key factor during the planning stages of your project and can significantly influence the assessment of appropriate technology and project economics.
Operations and maintenance strategy and optimisation for offshore infrastructure demands specialist expertise and relevant experience. We ensure that all aspects of your project are fully investigated and realistically assessed to help formulate strategy and optimise operation and maintenance programmes.
Intertek’s Total Quality Assurance operations and maintenance services help you plan offshore infrastructure projects and are an integral part of feasibility analysis that help you better understand whether your project is economically viable. As your projects develop our operations and maintenance strategies help optimise and improve the management of key risk factors and reduce the possibility of unexpected operational costs.
Our operations and maintenance services analyse offshore installation programmes that look at historical statistics and data to establish ideal installation timelines based on projected weather windows. This allows our clients the ability to better negotiate installation contracts. We also help you source and select ideal vessels for your survey and installation campaigns based on project constraints and regulatory requirements.
