NORSOK - E-001
|Publication Date:||1 January 2016|
This NORSOK standard contains provisions for electrical installations at voltages up to and including 35 kV AC and 1 500 V DC to provide safety in the design of electrical systems, selection, and use of electrical equipment for generation, storage, distribution and utilization of electrical energy for all purposes in offshore units which are being used for the purpose of exploration or exploitation of petroleum resources.
This NORSOK standard is applicable for the voltages stated above, even if a different voltage limit may be given in some of the parts in the IEC 61892 series of standards. It is expected that the voltage levels in the IEC 61892 series of standards will be corrected as part of the maintenance cycle of this IEC standard.
