ABERDEEN, UK – Maersk FPSOs has contracted Dron & Dickson to conduct an Ex baseline survey for the North Sea Producer FPSO.

A team of electrical technicians will inspect all Ex items onboard the vessel. Recorded data will be downloaded onto a new Ex register to be integrated into the maintenance management system.

Once the baseline survey has been established, a maintenance strategy will be implemented to ensure all Ex items on the FPSO are inspected periodically.

A three-man rope access team will be deployed throughout the contract, which could be extended to other vessels in the Maersk fleet.

Dron & Dickson’s work will be completed in accordance with the IEC 60079-17 standard for inspection and maintenance of electrical installations in hazardous areas, complying with the requirements of the UK Health & Safety Executive.
