Site-specific design assessment of wind turbines

Enhancing wind farm efficiency and safety at a specific site, DNV’s SDA service helps verify your wind turbines comply with applicable standards for specific site conditions

Because every location puts different demands on your wind farm, you need to ensure the technical integrity of your wind turbines for a specific site. Furthermore, site conditions have a large influence on the efficiency of wind farm projects as well as on the safety and reliability of the wind turbines.

DNV’s Site-specific Design Assessment (SDA) helps you verify that your turbine complies with all applicable standards for a specific site and the local conditions. Our service covers assessment of load assumptions and wind turbine design. We ensure parameters influencing your wind turbine design are duly accounted for, such as wind turbulence and wind shear data, wake effects, and wind speed distribution.

Our global team of professionals combines many years of experience, allowing them to effectively examine critical questions posed by your site’s design.
