The world needs a more sustainable energy system. With over 25 years experience in wind energy, DNV understands the industry and what is required for success throughout the entire project lifecycle.
Renewable energy continues to grow rapidly, with increased interest driven by the upward march of energy prices, increasing environmental awareness and energy security issues. These trends have spurred investment in renewable energy projects, particularly wind projects. However, this sector presents several technical, environmental, and financial challenges that investors, manufacturers, and developers need to understand thoroughly in order for their businesses to be successful.
DNV has been contributing to the successful growth of the wind energy industry for over 25 years. We have deep roots in the major markets in North America and Europe, as well as established offices in most of the emerging markets throughout the world. As the industry moves offshore, DNV combines it’s experience in wind with extensive knowledge of offshore energy and our strong maritime history to offer an unparalleled set of capabilities.
DNV provides a vast range of services for developers, manufacturers, and financiers investing in wind energy. Our risk management services cover the entire life-cycle of projects, including:
DNV’s recognized standard for design of offshore wind turbine structures has been through a revision process together with the wind energy industry. The updated standard which aims to reduce cost and increase safety is now available.
DNV has been active in developing standards, specifications and guidelines for wind turbine structures and components since 2001. The standards integrate decades of experience from the offshore industry with DNV’s in-depth wind turbine knowledge gained from the type certification of large megawatt turbines.
Each year we provide the energy and maritime industries with numerous publications covering Offshore Standards, Standards for Certification, Rules for Classification, Guidelines, Classification Notes, and Recommended Practices.
In addition, DNV takes a leading role in developing and revising international standards through active involvement on a number of International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) committees and European and national standards bodies.
