DNV GL approval

Certified to operate in marine environments

Maritime facilities are known for their harsh environments. Brutal offshore climate and weather conditions are factors which underscore the importance of making sure that products used for operation are robust enough to withstand these persistent conditions over longer periods. Existing oil platforms, rigs and pipelines are being upgraded and modernized to the highest standards. Only specified and tested products may be used for certain networks on an offshore facility.

An approval issued by Den Norske Veritas (DnV) confirms a device’s ability to withstand wide temperatures, humidity, extreme vibrations, shock and EMC noise. Common questions asked by the industry are: Is the solution future proof? Is the product water and dust proof? Is the product condensation proof? Can it withstand high humidity and heated platforms.

DnV certification ensures:

  • Application of modern safety principles
  • Adequate certification of safety critical components and systems meeting international and regional standards
  • Reduced risk
  • Makes oil and gas facilities safer

 Westermo’s products have the following competitive advantages for offshore application:

  • Hazard rated for safe operation in offshore oil rigs and gas fields
  • Hardened features such as rugged enclosure
  • Tolerance of wide temperature variations
  • Suitable for rugged work places
  • Guaranteed high band width and operation under severe conditions
