The audit was conducted between 26 October and 1 November 2023.


 The objective of the audit was to verify that the integrity of structures and maritime systems is safeguarded in compliance with the HSE regulations.


We identified one non-conformity concerning the conclusion of operational measures before verification has been completed.

We also identified four improvement points concerning:

  • Discrepancy between governing documents and operational practice
  • Lack of indication of open/closed position of ballast valves
  • Opening and closure times for watertight doors
  • Two watertight doors are left open in normal operation

What happens now?

We have asked Vår Energi to report to us on how the non-conformity will be addressed, and for their assessment of the improvement points identified. The reply deadline is set at 15 January 2024.
