DNV 2.7-1 Offshore Containers
The DNV 2.7-1 standard of all of our offshore containers relates to transportation shore-side (by fork lift), by supply vessel and lifting by crane onto and off offshore installations. Our offshore containers are designed to withstand all of the challenges of offshore installations and avoid failure even when faced with extreme conditions. We are also able to offer containers to DNV 2.7-3 – items such as temporary offices and control rooms intended for offshore use do not fall into the standard DNV 2.7-1 for containers, instead verification is provided by the DNV 2.7-3 standard.

As opposed to standard ISO Containers, DNV containers heavy duty construction is designed to withstand the rigours of being out at sea, particularly prevalent in the off-shore oil and gas industries. The DNV certification 2.7-1 states the standard of container required for off-shore containers in order to make sure that the DNV closed container is able to transport cargo in adverse seas safely without damaging cargo or surrounding objects. The process of certifying a DNV container covers all permanent items within or outside the container ensuring that all materials used are suitable for a long life off-shore as well as being easy to inspect and repair when at sea. Inspection takes place annually.
