DNV 2.71 Offshore Containers
What makes a DNV 2.71 Offshore Container different?
DNV 2.7-1 certified offshore containers are specifically designed for dynamic lifting via pad-eyes and a DNV certified lifting sling equipped with shackles. They are inspected at the design stage, material procurement, production and final load & NDE tested. Not only is a prototype tested but a specified number of randomly selected units from each batch are tested at a rate that is 5 times the testing rate for typical ISO shipping containers. These containers have solid steel construction, including the flooring.
They weigh nearly twice the comparably sized ISO container which is critical in their ability to maintain their upright position during transit through rough seas. They are required to have a uniquely identified DNV certified lifting sling, significantly stronger steel, more stringent production compliance and to have all the testing documentation to prove their worthiness for the rigors of offshore conditions.
