DNV GL has launched a new joint industry project (JIP) together with fourteen global partners to mutually develop a Recommended Practice for the coupled analysis of floating offshore wind turbines. Guidance includes setting up minimum requirements for the design on new concepts that can help investors’ evaluation, and supporting the more mature technologies towards a safe and secure commercialisation.
The participants come from a broad range of industries, including utilities, component manufacturing, engineering consultants, maritime research institutes, shipyards and academic research. 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. Ramboll, Ideol, EDF, Marin, STX Solutions Europe, Esteyco, Nautilus Floating Solutions, Dr. Techn. Olav Olsen, NREL, Gicon, Glosten, Atkins and Marintek are contributing to the development of the new Recommended Practice.
