DNV GL Seeks to Standardize Floating Turbines

DNV GL launched a new joint industry project (JIP) together with thirteen global partners to mutually develop a Recommended Practice for the coupled analysis of floating offshore wind turbines.

According to MANA, Despite the fact that the wind industry has a strong focus on the development of floating offshore wind turbines, it is still missing a widely recognized and unified approach for the practical methods to build and validate the numerical models, in accordance with the requirements in the standards.

The project is the first of its kind, bringing together multiple stakeholders from the wind, oil & gas and maritime industries, making it the most interdisciplinary project that engages in the technical advancement for floating offshore wind projects to date.
The participants come from a broad range of industries, including utilities, component manufacturing, engineering consultants, maritime research institutes, shipyards and academic research.

The following companies are contributing to the development of the new Recommended Practice: Ramboll, Ideol, EDF, MARIN, STX Solutions Europe, Esteyco, NAUTILUS Floating Solutions, Dr. Techn. Olav Olsen, National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), GICON, Glosten, Atkins and MARINTEK

Denis adds:" We expect that this project will provide an excellent platform to jointly develop a Recommended Practice by addressing the key issues and bringing together the expertise of key stakeholders.”
The new Recommended Practice will build on the experience from the application of the Offshore Standard DNV-OS-J103 “Design of Floating Wind Turbine Structures“ which was published in 2013 and will contain methods and ways to fulfil the requirements set in DNV-OS-J103
