ABS Group has received a contract to provide third-party certification and design verification services for Hexicon AB for the planned Dounreay Tri Floating Offshore Wind Farm demonstrator project in Scotland.
The Dounreay Tri Project, expected to be operational in 2018, is being developed by Hexicon and its partners to pilot a new floating foundation design for offshore wind. When completed, the project will consist of two wind turbines, up to 6MW each, mounted on Hexicon's platform that will be located offshore northern Scotland. ABS Group's certification scope will cover independent verification of the design basis, detailed design, manufacturing inspections, installation supervision, commissioning supervision and in-service inspections. Work has commenced with ABS Group providing preliminary planning and advice in support of Hexicon's development process and will continue in subsequent certification phases over the duration of the project.
