Safety Issue

The endurance test, as required by the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS), was not successfully completed before ABS issued a certificate of class for the platform in March 2005. Consequently, unresolved faults remained in the propulsion electrical system that may have compromised the platforms DP-2 classification.

Safety Recommendation
