MODU code 2009 CODE FOR THE CONSTRUCTION AND EQUIPMENT OF MOBILE OFFSHORE DRILLING UNITS


Year: 2009
Language: english
Author: IMO
Genre: Convention (rules)
Format: PDF
Quality: eBook
Pages count: 132
Description: 1 This Code has been developed to provide an international standard for mobile offshore drilling units
of new construction which will facilitate the international movement and operation of these units and ensure
a level of safety for such units, and for personnel on board, equivalent to that required by the International
Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea, 1974, as amended, and the Protocol of 1988 relating to the
International Convention on Load Lines, 1966, for conventional ships engaged on international voyages. It
is not intended that the provisions of the Code of Safety for Special Purpose Ships be applied in addition to
the provisions of this Code.
2 Throughout the development of the Code, it was recognized that it must be based upon sound design
and engineering principles and experience gained from operating such units; it was further recognized that
design technology of mobile offshore drilling units is not only a complex technology but is continually
evolving and that the Code should not remain static but be re-evaluated and revised as necessary. To this
end the Organization will periodically review the Code, taking into account both experience and future
development.
3 Any existing unit which complies with the provisions of this Code should be considered eligible for
issuance of a certificate in accordance with this Code.
4 This Code is not intended to prohibit the use of an existing unit simply because its design,
construction and equipment do not conform to this Code. Many existing mobile offshore drilling units have
operated successfully and safely for extended periods of time and their operating history should be
considered in evaluating their suitability to conduct international operations.
5 The coastal State may permit any unit designed to a lower standard than that of the Code to engage
in operations having taken account of the local conditions (e.g., meteorological and oceanographic). Any
such unit should, however, comply with safety requirements which in the opinion of the coastal State are
adequate for the intended operation and ensure the overall safety of the unit and the personnel on board.
6 This Code does not include requirements for the drilling of subsea wells or the procedures for their
control. Such drilling operations are subject to control by the coastal State.
