Vessels towing a rig

DNV GL provides transportation and installation services for offshore structures and vessels typically between the fabrication location and offshore field.

Our experience-based quality consultancy covers all aspects of a load-out, transportation and installation scope, from vessel identification to load out, sail-away, discharge and float-overs, offshore heavy-lifts as well as operations related to offshore power cables.  

As well as transportation and installation we can also help with in-service activities such as mooring line change-out, repair and replacement as well as decommissioning operations.
