Fleet Service Agreement (FSA)


FSA is a firm agreement between a ship/rig operator and Norsafe, for regular service, mandatory inspections, training and spares. Operational readiness taken care of, in a pro-active way.

In July 2006 revised SOLAS guidelines were put in place with new requirements for inspections, general maintenance and training of personnel. In the revised version of SOLAS it is clearly stated that service, repair and inspections “should be conducted by the manu-facturer’s representative or a person appropriately trained and certified by the manufacturer for the work to be done.” As the original equipment manufacturer with over a hundred years of experience, we know exactly how important competent service is on our equipment. We encourage our customers to contact Norsafe if they are ever in doubt of the competence or certification of service engineers. When the annual or five-year service has been completed a certificate of serviceability is issued for all LSA equipment. Annual inspections are conducted in accordance with the requirements stated in MSC 1206.
