R&D Engineering has provided engineering services for the maritime industry since its founding. We have provided numerous design and engineering calculations for offshore baskets, skids and lifting devices. We have done everything from performing design checks on existing equipment, to designing from the ground up in order to meet the required specification.
According to the latest Shell lifting standard (OPS0055 Lifting and Hoisting Standard), “All CCUs and lifting sets must be certified to industry standards DNV 2.7-1, EN 12079, and ABS Guide for Offshore Containers by January 1, 2018.” This means that the unit will have to be designed and reviewed by an authorizing agency in accordance with DNV 2.7-1. During fabrication, the project will be surveyed by the same authorizing agency and can be supervised by R&D Engineering.
