DAWN: Materials Inventories just got Easier

D3 Consulting launches a new Materials Inventory and Waste Characterisation system already in use for 19 North Sea platforms scheduled for decommissioning.

Having completed Materials Inventories for 19 platforms and subsea installations under decommissioning in the North Sea in the past 24 months, D3 Consulting has now developed a robust online information management system for the preparation and ongoing management of Materials Inventories which can be used by Operators and their supply chain. D3’s in-house team of surveyors use DAWN across a range of different decommissioning projects, making it a tried and tested system ready to be launched.

The system is called DAWN: Decommissioning Assurance through Waste kNowledge – the focus being that a better understanding of your asset from a waste and materials point of view, the smoother the decommissioning process. Also DAWN holds the Inventory of Hazardous Materials (IHM) which is now regulatory requirement for all offshore assets to have, regardless of whether going into decommissioning.

DAWN allows the user to develop Materials Inventories using drop down menus proposing EWC codes for waste items etc. The resulting Materials Inventories are then available in a format which feed straight into DECC Decommissioning Programmes, as well as prepopulated documentation such as TransFrontier Shipment notes, cost schedules for tendering purposes and waste handling protocols for hazardous and non-hazardous wastes. We have also included guidance on “when is a material a waste” in accordance with the applicable regulations and the option for the EWC codes to be translated into Norwegian Waste codes for cases where the asset ends up in Norway for disposal.
