New edition of NORSOK R-001 Mechanical equipment published

NORSOK R-001:2017 Mechanical equipment, Edition 4, January 2017, has been published, and replaces NORSOK R-001, rev. 3, November 1997.

NORSOK R-001 describes technical requirements for the design, manufacturing, assembling, product inspection, and installation and testing of mechanical equipment, except lifting equipment. The standard has been considerable updated on most parts due to the long period since last update. This is also related to updates on relevant standards and EC directives. Completely new clauses added are e.g. exhaust systems and WHRU’s, and electrical motors and generators.
