DNV Releases Floating Offshore Wind Turbine Standards - North American Windpower: reNewsDNV Releases Floating

To help accelerate the development of floating offshore wind turbines, DNV KEMA has developed design requirements for floating structures and related systems. According to Johan Sandberg, head of renewable energy at DNV KEMA, the standard covers a broad range of issues, including safety, philosophy and design principles; site conditions, loads and response; materials and corrosion protection; structural design; design of anchor foundations; floating stability; station keeping; control and mechanical systems; and transport and installation. DNV anticipates the new guidelines will help ensure safety and reliability in floating wind turbines and give the nascent floating-turbine sector the confidence to continue its development to commercial maturity. "As demand for wind energy increases, we predict offshore deployments will continue to move into deeper waters, and consequent...
