Providing Effective Interface Engineering Solutions

Interface engineering is the linking together of a fixed platform and a mobile drilling or accommodation vessel to carry out a drilling or maintenance activity. The installed Interface links and critical systems enhance the safety and performance of the personnel operating on either installation.

Our fully comprehensive Interface design packages begin with onshore/offshore surveys before completing a work pack with engineering fabrication drawings, system calculations and more. We then execute and support installation, commissioning and de-commissioning of the system.

Our objectives when engineering effective interfaces are to minimise downtime by executing the most cost and time effective method without compromising personnel safety.  We adhere to client's specifications and requirements, whilst meeting the criteria outlined in the Combined Operations Notification (CON) and HAZID.

Communicating closely with all parties such as client, duty holder, ISC and verifier allows us to achieve a fully acceptable interfaced system, commissioned and ready for handover.
