About This Project

Raising awareness of a key issue in offshore lift and hoist projects – the challenges and opportunities of Hydrogen Embrittlement.

Our work with William Hackett has extended to a multi-stakeholder international campaign resulting in research that helped to create a technical report and webinar. The multi-tiered communications approach brought industry stakeholders together to discuss their concerns and to ask questions so that the supply chain can collectively work together to find better ways on how best to mitigate risks in offshore operations, and to ensure that the products used are suitable for that environment.

The campaign brought to life why operators in particular need to ensure that despite commercial pressures, the products used in the offshore environment are fully appropriate for their intended use, and that the environmental conditions, mechanical stresses and material susceptibility have all been assessed rigorously.
