Design Verification and Certification for Floating Wind Platform Offshore UK
A design and development firm had designed a new semisubmersible floating platform foundation concept for offshore wind energy production in the United Kingdom (U.K.). While the design incorporates several existing technologies from offshore oil and gas platforms and the shipbuilding and offshore wind industry, the client requested third-party design verification and project certification for this innovative technology to assess its safety and quality in accordance with applicable standards and regulations.
The client sought an advisor that could deliver technical knowledge and practical experience in verifying new design concepts for floating offshore wind facilities and that would work as an independent certification body for this demonstration project.
- Verify design aspects/requirements for safety and quality
- Review applicable guidelines for building floating wind turbine installations
- Demonstrate that the new concept meets applicable standards and regulations
Provide preliminary planning and advice ahead of certification process
Follow project certification methodology to verify that project complies with standards, regulations and specifications
Confirm requisite quality of the manufacturing, fabrication, installation and commissioning of the project
Leading Project Certification Body for Offshore Wind Farms
In this multiphase project, the client will receive design verification and project certification for a novel floating platform foundation concept that will produce offshore renewable wind energy for the U.K. and demonstrate the viability of a game-changing approach to offshore wind installations.
Our experience verifying floating wind foundation concepts and organizational experience working with offshore structures and marine assets supports our certification process. This broad experience also enables our engineers to advise the client on a number of key concepts and strategies for the design of this innovative technology.
