Edition 2017-12 - Amended 2021-10

This recommended practice (RP) provides principles and technical requirements for wind turbines under icing conditions – both onshore and offshore. 

The RP covers the following topics: 

  • external conditions
  • design loads
  • site assessment to identify risk of ice for a potential site
  • ice detection, including de-icing and anti-icing procedures and influence on control and protection system
  • manuals
  • design requirements. 
General requirements for wind turbine technical applications in low temperature climate (LT) are outside the scope of this RP. They may be found in DNVGL-RP-0363.
