TÜV NORD employees will carryout its first project certification in accordance with the IECRE OD-502 scheme. The installations to be certified are the Dutch offshore wind farms Hollandse Kust Zuid 1&2 and 3&4.
For the planned wind farm zone Hollandse Kust Zuid, Vattenfall initially opted for TÜV NORD to carry out the design inspection and certify not only the foundation and supporting structure work but also the design of the cabling within the farm. Vattenfall then also commissioned TÜV NORD to certify the execution phase. TÜV NORD will also finally evaluate the entire certification process and ultimately issue the project certificate.
The 1.5GW wind farm zone will include approximately 140 Siemens Gamesa SG DD-193 wind turbines, each with an output of up to 11 MW. The wind farms are being built between 18 to 36 kilometers off the Dutch coast in the North Sea and commissioning will begin as early as 2022.
