China Merchants Heavy Industry (CMHI) and DNV GL signed a Letter of Intent (LoI) for the classification of two multi-activity jack-up units.
Ordered by OOS Energy, which is affiliated with Netherlands-based Overdulve Offshore Services (OOS) International, these 96 m long units will be purpose-built for the decommissioning market. Construction is scheduled to start later this year.
“We are very pleased that OOS Energy and China Merchants Heavy Industry (CMHI) have chosen DNV GL as the classification partner for this project. We welcome OOS as a new customer for classification and highly value their trust in DNV GL. This project with CMHI marks the continuation of a very fruitful relationship, and we look forward to undertaking many more projects with CMHI in the future,” says Ernst Meyer, Director of Offshore Classification at DNV GL – Maritime.
“DNV GL has demonstrated an excellent level of service during the last project we worked on in our yard, a 400K Valemax II VLOC and mid/deep water semi-submersible drilling unit. We appreciate DNV GL’s solutions orientated approach and that their experts are service-minded, while never compromising on quality. Through this project, our relationship will become even closer and stronger. We look forward to working with DNV GL in the future, with more comprehensive cooperation for other ship type segments,” says Mr. Yao Rulin, General Manager of CMHI (Jiangsu).
For OOS Energy, these will be the first of the company’s units to be classed by DNV GL.
