Edition 2014-08 - Amended 2021-10

The objective of this recommended practice (RP) is to provide a systematic method for qualification of offshore HVDC transmission technologies. The RP gives guidance on how to utilize the generic qualification procedure for new technology, presented in DNV-RP-A203, on offshore HVDC transmission technologies. 

The scope of the RP is applicable for offshore HVDC systems, subsystems and components that can be defined as new offshore HVDC transmission technologies or concepts. Interfaces between offshore HVDC transmission technologies and offshore installation and auxiliaries already covered by existing offshore standards are covered by the procedure.
