What is an Offshore Container?

An Offshore Container is a specially built shipping container designed to be used offshore, where the conditions are much harsher than on land. Because of this, they must adhere to a more strict set of rules (DNV 2.7-1) for safety purposes, as they are exposed to harsher conditions, and must be lifted between fixed and/or floating offshore installations and ships.

ISO Containers vs. DNV Containers

ISO and DNV containers differ in three main areas:

Exposure to Harsh Environments: As mentioned, offshore conditions are much harsher than on land, due to the corrosive saltwater spray and colder temperatures. This means the the container must be suitably tested with a lower minimum design temperature, as well as use protective paints and coatings to resist the corrosion.

Loading and Unloading Forces: Whilst ISO and DNV containers will both need to be lifted when loading and unloading, offshore contaners must be more robust, as they are being lifted from a moving vessel onto a fixed or floating platform, whilst enduring the onslaught of ocean waves. They are always supplied with a sling-set for lifting. Not all offshore containers have corner castings to be lifted like an ISO container with a spreader beam, but many of our DNV 2.7-1 certified containers are ISO dual certified, like our 20ft Closed Top CCU.

Designs: Due to the nature of offshore work, specific tools and equipment must be used, which might not fit into a standard 20ft container shape. This is why you have unique designs to fit specific uses offshore, such as a DNV Gas Bottle Rack, or a 7m³ DNV Boat Shaped Skips.

How are Offshore Containers lifted?

DNV 2.7-1 Offshore containers also differ from their ISO counterparts with the addition of padeyes. Padeyes are welded onto the structure of the container, and this is where the DNV certified sling set is attached to the container with a shackle. The containers are always lifted by the slingset when being transferred to and from the offshore platforms.
