The objective of the audit was to assess how Vår Energi is ensuring compliance with the authorities’ requirements, recognised standards and its own requirements within the safety of structures at Ringhorne. We also wanted to verify that observations and lessons from our previous audits had been addressed in accordance with feedback reports.


No nonconformities were identified.

Six improvement points were identified relating to:

  • Decision support in contingency plans
  • Follow-up of suppliers
  • Organisation chart
  • Design requirements
  • Shock loads from the movement of conductors
  • Reporting of damage in CODAM

What happens next?

Vår Energi has been given a deadline of 15 December 2019 to report on how the improvement points will be addressed.
