pressure vessels in offshore AUS vs. AS1210

pressure vessels in offshore AUS vs. AS1210

Hi All,

Would somebody know if the AS1210 Australian standard for pressure vessels may be applicable only for onshore installation ?
What about a pressure vessel installed on a floating facility... in Australian waters ??

Thanks for your help


RE: pressure vessels in offshore AUS vs. AS1210

The AS 1210 is not mandatory for offshore installation, unless is mandated by the customer specification. I assume the question was rather the vessel has to be registered with the Australian authority or not. The answer;- the registration is not mandatory for the offshore platforms. However, the registration may be mandated by the insurance company, who need assurance of equipment safety. One way could be the U-stamp, another way to register it voluntarily with the local government (WA waters, QLD waters, etc.). That way the design verification, manufacturing inspection is completed by means of U-stamp or registration with Australian local government, to the satisfaction of the insurance company and the user. Depending on the equipment and the manufacturer, the U-stamp might not be feasible, but the registration is equivalent assurance of quality, without the U-stamp expenses.
