Decommissioning Assurance

Global Maritime MWS will provide assurance throughout the decommissioning process, from guidance during late life operation when initial decommissioning planning is undertaken, through to evaluating the suitability of the disposal yard facilities in preparation for landing the decommissioned structures and modules.


Depending on the insurance requirements for the project Global Maritime can act as MWS representing the interests of the underwriters or, if the decommissioning project is “self-insured”, Global Maritime can act as Independent Competent Person (ICP) on behalf of the owner of the structures to be decommissioned.


Global Maritime has over 20 years of experience in providing MWS for decommissioning projects. Global Maritime recognises that the level of acceptable risk in many aspects of decommissioning is different from installation projects. However two aspects that cannot be compromised are risks to life and the environment. Global Maritime will work with the owner and removals contractor to ensure that the removals approach is appropriate and cost effective.
