Areas far away from the coast - offshore areas - are becoming increasingly important for the use of energy sources, whether fossil or renewable. Approximately 25 percent of the world's verified oil reserves are estimated to be located offshore. With the establishment of stricter climate targets, the focus is now increasingly on the use of wind and water for offshore energy generation.

Offshore platforms combine both working and living areas for the crew and are often exposed to the most difficult weather conditions in highly corrosive maritime atmospheres. Various circuits, e.g. extinguishing systems or cooling water supply, are fed from seawater. In many cases, potentially explosive atmospheres (ATEX) are created. Accordingly, the materials of the components used must be carefully selected and also meet the NORSOK standards of the Norwegian petroleum industry.
