Sebastian signs FMEA deal with PGSCompany News // October 25, 2012
Consulting firm Sebastian AS recently signed a contract with seismic company Petroleum Geo-Services (PGS) to provide failure mode effects analysis (FMEA) verification services.
The Ulstein company will review the work that Det Norske Veritas (DNV) is to carry out on new PGS ships.
“PGS is known for setting high standards for its suppliers. In this project, Sebastian will provide the FMEA verification. The actual FMEA service is a job that the Mitsubishi yard in Nagasaki has already hired a company to do. Sebastian will conduct a full verification of that work,” explained Johannes Kristian Bjøringsøy, the CEO of Sebastian.
“What is a bit special here is that we are to validate Det Norske Veritas (DNV), which will do the FMEA job. On behalf of the shipowner, we will verify and review DNV’s work and the conclusions that DNV arrives at.”
