APRIL 6, 2016 — New subsea technologies and systems must be qualified before use to build confidence that they will function as intended. However, says classification society DNV GL, current subsea technology qualification (TQ) processes can be inefficient, time consuming and variations in methodology impede industry players from leveraging on each other’s results.
A new position paper "Subsea system qualification - Towards a standardized approach" by DNV GL’s Strategic Research & Innovation unit aims to answer two questions:
- How can confidence in new subsea systems be demonstrated in a faster and more efficient way?
- How can already qualified technologies be re-qualified in an effective manner for reuse in similar systems or under slightly different operating conditions?
