Maersk Drilling hires DNV for software quality assurance

Posted on 21 June 2013

Maersk Drilling and DNV have entered into a contract to quality assure the software for Maersk Drilling’s new CJ70 jackups to be delivered at the end of the year by Keppel in Singapore.

DNV will carry out software-version control audits of key equipment, with a focus on software integrity, on the CJ70 jackups during the commissioning of the units. The work started this month and will continue until the units are delivered.

The contract includes a review of the suppliers’ procedures for software change management and an assessment of how the suppliers follow the procedures during the commissioning of the equipment.

“We are experiencing increasing demand from the drilling market for services related to the safety and reliability of integrated software-dependent systems. These services are now becoming an industry standard for offshore drilling units,” said Knut Ording, manager of DNV’s systems and software reliability section.
