Our clients can take advantage of our proven track record in undertaking technically challenging projects in potentially hazardous environments involving the construction, inspection, maintenance and decommissioning of electrical and instrumentation equipment.
We manage discrete construction and commissioning activities during the preparation phase, execution phase or as part of a fully integrated construction and commissioning service, ranging from E&I construction on the Brynhild, Haewe Brim and Cygnus assets; to installation of caissons, cathodic protection and heat tracing systems; to removal of bumper bars and upgrades of helideck lighting. Irrespective of the project size or complexity, it is carried out in line with relevant legislative standards such as EN 60079:14, ATEX IEE 17th Edition and UL.
As industry leaders in the field of hazardous area equipment inspections, we can advise on the best practices for ensuring compliance with ATEX/DSEAR & PFEER standards and in accordance with IEC 60079-17, aiding operators to adopt the Energy Institute’s Risk Based Inspection (RBI) principles. Clients can also draw on our extensive knowledge of developing and executing bespoke Ex certified equipment maintenance strategies and procedures for operators in the oil, gas and petrochemical industries, as well as taking advantage of proven maintenance free “sealed for life” equipment recommendations.
Decommissioning will become a substantial part of offshore operations in the years to come. SKN can work with clients to ensure electrical and instrumentation equipment is dismantled safely, sustainably and cost efficiently.
