Floating wind energy certification
Comprehensive certification delivers maximum stakeholder confidence for important emerging technology
Following several successful prototypes and demonstration projects around the world, floating offshore wind is now taking the first steps in commercialization. In any major critical infrastructure project, stakeholders want reassurance that all possible steps have been taken to minimize risk and maximize the chances of a successful project. And with an emerging technology like floating wind that reassurance is even more important.
Independent certification is the most trusted route to deliver stakeholder confidence. By validating the project/equipment against an accepted standard, certification shows that risks have been understood and minimized. DNV offers a complete service for certifying floating offshore wind turbines and plants against either our own comprehensive standard or the IEC technical specification.
Our floating wind energy certification is based on the DNVGL-ST-0119 standard and DNVGL-SE-0422 service specification. These documents provide the most comprehensive technical reference suite for this floating wind, and can be applied to complete wind farms, individual turbines and their components.
The modular certification approach covers all development levels from early concept to commercial project and includes assessment of:
- Design basis
- Transport and installation
