Working with the Client we will endeavour to ensure that processes and decisions result in the overall reduction of risk associated with projects, which will include attending and participating in project planning meetings and project HIRA’s, as well as the development of the project risk assessment and diving project plans.


Namaka Subsea has developed a number of solutions of clients based on industry compliance, including Competence Management System, Medical Equipment and an Equipment Management System.


It is our aim to take the knowledge and experience gained by our personnel, over the years, to provide both technical and operational support to our Clients within the subsea industry.

Namaka Subsea can provide clients with technical and operational support for lay operations and equipment. Our Technical Advisors have experience in numerous lay systems configurations for rigid pipelay, reel lay, flexible pipelay, and umbilical lay operations and have extensive in-depth knowledge of the latest codes, recommended practices, guidelines, and legislative requirements.

In order to provide assurance that lay equipment is designed, built and operated to minimum industry standards and best practices, Equipment Assurance may be regarded as a means of proving conformity to a defined set of standard compliance categories.

Equipment Assurance is a process to ensure the operational capability and safety of vessel-based and mobile mission-based equipment throughout the entire lifecycle of a system’s operational life expectancy.

Equipment Assurance endeavours to ensure equipment is maintained in a fit-for-service condition while extending longevity in the most reliable, safe, and cost-effective manner, thus improving equipment reliability and safety whilst reducing unplanned maintenance and repair costs.

Equipment Assurance does not exist in isolation. To successfully implement an Equipment Assurance process in a dynamic operating environment, all stakeholders must have a consistent and unified approach and understanding of the essentials of Equipment Assurance and how they can be applied in their day-to-day operations.

This is often cited as among the most significant challenges in achieving an Equipment Assurance culture within an organisation. The following standard compliance categories may be regarded to ascribe to a set of Equipment Assurance requirements that could contribute to demonstrating that vessel-based and mobile mission equipment is safe and fit for purpose.

  • Design Premise
  • Designed to a Recognised Standard
  • Design Appraisal
  • Control System Design and Operating Philosophy
  • Drawing Pack
  • Failure Mode Analysis
  • Acceptance Testing
  • Operations and Maintenance Manual
  • Proof Load Test
  • DROPS Survey
  • Access Survey
  • Working at Height Survey
  • System Function / Pre-start Checklists
  • Periodic Functional Testing
  • Sensor Calibration
  • Maintenance and Preservation Philosophy
  • Spares Philosophy
  • Hydraulic Hose Management
  • Wire Rope Integrity Management
  • Management of Technical Change
  • Personnel Competency and Training

Namaka Subsea are also aware that each client may have additional requirements over and above the standard compliance categories, so we can tailor bespoke packages in line with client requirements while maintaining compliance with codes, best industry practices, guidelines and legislations.
