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.
