ABERDEEN, UK -- Dominion Gas has awarded Ritchie a contract for the manufacture of cylinder diving gas frames.

The frames will hold 48 or 64, 50 liter capacity, three hundred bar cylinders. Each frame has a dedicated serial number so that it can be tracked, providing material traceability and integrating with Dominion Gas' asset management software (CATS).

In order to manufacture the frames to a size that would meet Dominion Gas' transport requirements, Ritchie purpose designed a new top section to reduce the height of the entire assembly.

After this process was complete, the structure was re-submitted for DNV 2.7-1:2006, the Det Norske Veritas Standard for Certification of Offshore Units. The product is also fully compliant with BS EN 12079, the British Standard for the design, construction, and testing of offshore containers.
