DNV GL has published the revised standard for design of floating wind turbine structures DNV GL-ST-0119, and a new guideline for the certification of floating wind turbines, DNVGL-SE-0422. The guidelines provide a technical reference suite for this emerging technology. The documents cover the complete requirements for the integrated system and can be applied for design and certification of floating wind farms, turbines or their components.
The technical standard for the design of floating wind turbine structures, DNV GL-ST-0119 and the new service guideline for the certification of floating wind turbines, DNVGL-SE-0422 are applicable for the entire floating structure, from the control of the single turbine and floater to mooring and anchors of the complete wind farm. DNV GL has developed the technical guidelines based on the experience from research projects and verification of existing floating wind prototypes and pilot wind farms. Furthermore, the documents are built on DNV GL’s experience in the oil & gas and bottom-fixed offshore wind industry.
