Wind farm project certification

Project certification helps you to achieve stable operation and proper risk management.

In a competitive energy sector, the ability to consistently produce sustainable power is essential. This requires reliable quality, stable operation and proper risk management at all times. DNV’s wind farm project certification helps you achieve exactly this.

We provide you with a well-proven, totally independent review and approval of wind turbines, support structures, substations, power cables and control station at a specific location. This takes into account all relevant factors, such as soil conditions. By having your project certified, you demonstrate risk awareness and willingness to address such challenges. And that gives potential investors and other stakeholders more confidence in you.
