Container has many different types for different applications. The most common container is shipping containers to carry cargos in vessels. Normally, this shipping containers complies with ISO standard which can be accepted by International shipping companies and use them conveniently. Hereunder, we want to discuss more what is offshore container? what is the difference between offshore container and ISO container? What third party certificate is required for offshore container? Finally, we may give some brief introduction of China container manufacturers.
“an offshore container is a “portable unit, specially designed for repeated use in the transport of goods or equipment to, from or between fixed and/or floating offshore installations and ships” As defined by the International Maritime Organization.
From here, we can get the application site of offshore containers. They should be applied to jack-up offshore drilling platform, swamp drilling platform, floating offshore drilling boat etc.
When we carry some pumps, shale shakers, mud conditioners, centrifuges from offshore platform to onshore by helicopter, we may need to lift them by some offshore containers or offshore frames.
When we need to carry the drilling waste from offshore platform to onshore for final treatment, eg. oil based mud waste, drilling mud skip or drilling mud cuttings box is required for the transportation and they all DNV2.7-1 certified.
When we carry some vegetables and meats and other foods from onshore to offshore, we may need reefer containers which is like Refrigerator with DNV2.7-1 certificate.
There are also many other types of offshore container and we may offer customized design per customer request.
Question 2: Which kinds of certificates are required for offshore container acceptance?
Third party certificate is must for offshore containers, normally they can be issued by DNV or LR. DNV2.7-1 or other type certificate can assure the offshore containers can withstand forces much better than other type containers and will be safely applied to offshore drilling platform. Due to the harsh conditions of offshore drilling platform, DNV third party certificates is a must to offshore container owners. Otherwise, their offshore container will be not be accepted.
