Safe Scandinavia Receives Norwegian AoC
The accommodation unit Safe Scandinavia has received the Petroleum Safety Authority Norway's Acknowledgement of Compliance (AoC) as a flotel. The Safe Scandinavia is operated by Prosafe Offshore Limited and is the first living quarters facility to receive an AoC.
The AoC is a statement issued by the PSA to the effect that a mobile facility's technical condition, as well as the applicant's organization and management systems, are considered to be in compliance with relevant requirements in the Norwegian shelf regulations.
Since January 1, 2004, the AoC has been one of the preconditions for a mobile drilling facility being allowed to carry out drilling activities on the Norwegian shelf.
Effective January 1, 2007, the AoC became mandatory for a number of other types of mobile facilities registered in a national ships' register, including living quarters facilities.
The well intervention facility Island Frontier was the first facility to receive an AoC after the system was expanded.
The Safe Scandinavia was built in 1984 at Aker Verdal according to an Aker H-3.2E design.
The facility has a maximum of 583 beds and 59 work stations. It will be used by Statoil in connection with modifications of the Snorre A facility.
