SkyCiv now provides a detailed DNV report to assist you with the time consuming design review stage of a DNV 2.7-1 certification for offshore containers. We offer this as an integrated design solution within our powerful structural design solution.
  Det Norske Veritas Germanischer Lloyd (DNV GL) is one of the largest classification and technical consultancy societies in the world. They specialize in services relating to the quality of ships, offshore units, and onshore industries globally. You can be assured that an offshore container certified under DNV 2.7-1 is in accordance with DNV GL's interpretation of the minimum technical and safety requirements mandated by the International Maritime Dangerous Goods (IMDG) code. The strength of the DNV 2.7-1 standard for offshore containers lies in its consideration of international standards, codes, and regulations. The most important of these include:
  • International Marine Organisation (IMO) circular MSC/Circ.860
  • European Standard (EN 12079)
The approval and certification procedure by DNV GL consists of 4 main steps.
  1. Design Review
  2. Inspection and testing of prototype
  3. Production inspection and testing
  4. Issuance of certificates
SkyCiv's DNV module is designed to assist you with the time consuming design review step. After entering in the details of your container and lifting set arrangement, we provide a detailed report showing arrangements and calculations. These are all necessary when submitting a document for review at a DNV office. In particular, SkyCiv's DNV report provides:
  • Design Load calculations
  • Lifting Set calculations
  • Padeye and shackle checks
  • Support for normal padeyes, cheekplate padeyes, and inserted boss padeyes
  • Sling leg arrangement diagrams and angle details.
  • Support for asymmetric lifting
