Also known as offshore support vessels, OSVs are specially designed ships for the logistical servicing of offshore platforms and subsea installations, from installation through the full service life of offshore fields.

The special challenges that you face during the design, building or operation of your offshore service vessel (OSV) require a quick response and support from competent partners. Because each OSV is specialised for its own particular task, few standard solutions alone will do.

Working with leading companies in this industry, DNV GL continuously develops standards and the competence needed to cater to best practices, and we assist in setting new standards for safeguarding life, property and the environment at sea. One example of this is the development of dynamic positioning standards for enhanced reliability (DYNPOS ER).

Our trusted support for offshore service vessels covers:

  • Feasibility studies in the pre-design stage and classification pre-checks
  • Classification rules and an attractive set of class notations describing the capabilities and functions of the vessel
  • Dynamic positioning (DP) systems and assessment/improvement of reliability of key systems
  • Hull optimisation, reduced emissions and lower fuel consumption
  • Comfort class, noise and vibration solutions

DNV GL also offers several services that go beyond classification. These principally include access to renowned offshore expertise in DNV GL Energy and DNV GL Oil & Gas: offshore oil and gas experts, offshore wind experts, power system experts and advanced engineering experts.
