The Norwegian Ocean Industry Authority (Havtil) has launched an investigation into a short-circuit with subsequent fire and smoke development in a substation at Mongstad on 15 February 2024.

This incident in a substation for electrical power distribution at the west coast plant was reported to Havtil by Equinor on the same day.

The whole plant was routinely evacuated by non-operational personnel and the process system run down.

Following the decision to investigate the incident, a team of Havtil specialists is now starting work.

Its investigation will include the following:
clarify the course of events and the scope of the incident
assess its actual and potential consequences
assess its direct and underlying causes
identify nonconformities and improvement points related to the regulations
apply necessary enforcement powers to correct possible regulatory breaches
assess Equinor’s own lessons learnt and experience transfer from earlier incidents
make public its findings
contribute to experience transfer to and learning by other players in the petroleum sector.

The investigation will be summed up in a report published at havtil.no.
