Annual Inspection of CO2 Fire Fighting System

January 2020

After agreeing a price for the 10-year Hydro Test/service and Inspection of the ships CO2 systems, the service was addressed in due course whilst berthed in Aberdeen Harbour. The vessel requested a change out of all the cylinders which we addressed from our exchange stock, our units were duly Hydro Tested and Refilled ready for exchange which was addressed on Monday 23rd March. The contaminated cylinders are now in quarantine and we await REM OFFSHORES guidance on what action they wish to progress, with the company’s permission we have informed MCA and Flag with a view to providing the copies of laboratory results and Manufacturers details so an all vessel alert can be compiled and circulated. A meeting with MCA/DNVGL and Flag has been requested to discuss the disparity in testing standards applied by different authorities, the need to address all cylinders for Hydro Testing every ten years is a paramount requirement clearly identified by this example which is obviously a serious issue.
