System design plays a crucial part of ensuring the safety and integrity of any system as well as ensuring efficient operations, therefore it is essential that the systems be evaluated against the relevant standards, etc as part of the technical evaluation.
Namaka can provide a Technical Advisor as requested by the Client to ensure that systems and processes are designed and developed to current industry best practices, industry guidance, classification rules and geographical legislation.
This will include but not be limited to:
- IMCA Guidance
- IOGP Best Practices
- Class/Certifying Authority Rules
- Global and Local Regulatory Requirements
The Technical Advisor will work with the Client to ensure that processes and the design of the systems result in the overall reduction of risks associated with offshore operations and will include the review of operating and maintenance manuals containing all equipment engineering data, operating and maintenance information meets with industry best practices.
The Technical Advisor will assist the Client on the selection of equipment to ensure the equipment and supporting documentation is both fit for its intended use and complies with current best industry practices and guidance. Communications between the Technical Advisor and the Client will be maintained at all times to ensure the scope of work is carried out as per Client instructions and to advise the Client of any issues that may affect the safety and efficiency of operations.
The basic elements of the system will be reviewed to confirm processes and procedures in place are sufficient and will include but not be limited to:
- Failure Mode Effects and Criticality Analysis (FMECA)
- Life Support Trials
- Operating and Emergency Procedures
- System Finite Element Analysis (FEA)
This may also include condition-based cost evaluation of a system, which will include an assessment of the current condition of the system and provide an estimated value of the system, or an assessment of the current condition of the system as well as a scheduled evaluation identifying cost/time/resources required to carry out a scope of work to ensure the system is in an operational state for safe and efficient operations. This will include the operational functionality and general condition of the equipment as well as the availability and completeness of the associated documentation and will identify a cost against each item, equipment part and the time to complete the scope of work as well as any resources required.
An evaluation report will be provided and will comment on where Namaka consider the equipment and supporting documentation to be non-compliant with the required industry best practices, industry guidance, classification and legislation or not fit for purpose and safe operation.
