Wind & Renewables
End to end solutions compliance, safety and verification of offshore wind assets
The energy sector is on the front line of the fight against climate change, and renewable energy has a pivotal role to play. We need to increase the availability of renewable energy sources to help deliver a lower carbon future, but this relies on safe and sustainable assets in key sectors such as offshore wind.
Offshore wind is a key growth sector in the renewable energy market. With the UK having less than 10GW installed at the end of 2019, it is planned that there will be up to 30GW of installed capacity by 2030.
By enlisting the support of an independent partner, you can verify conformity, achieve compliance and optimise costs more effectively throughout all stages of offshore wind projects.
With a dedicated team of offshore wind specialists, Bureau Veritas helps to ensure the safety, quality and performance of renewable energy assets through all stages of design, construction and operation.
We have a team of dedicated offshore wind professionals working on more than 60 offshore wind projects globally. With vast experience in offshore wind and an unrivalled understanding of regulatory requirements, our solutions cover:
Demonstrate compliance and secure viability (approvals in principle and certification of prototypes, components, type and project).
Reduce development risk through early collaboration (wind measurement and site assessments, Marine Warranty services, grid connection assessments, design reviews, environmental impact assessments, support with permitting, risk assessments, due diligence and investor/lender services).
Enable access to a global, reliable supply chain (supply chain technical assessments, technical procurement support, shop inspections, expediting, factory acceptance tests and supervision with transport, loading and unloading).
Run projects safely and to schedule (project and construction management support, on site QA/QC, on site HSE, turbine foundation supervision, supervision with commissioning and test runs, take over and end-of-warranty inspections).
Ensure availability and shorten outage time (periodic inspections of blades and main components, non-destructive testing, load measurements, thermographic inspections, vibration monitoring, oil analysis, endoscopic inspections, rotor balance inspections, earth termination measurements, training and failure/damage analysis).
Extend operating life and increase performance (O&M management, maintenance strategies, condition monitoring and assessment, asset integrity management, reliability engineering and performance optimisation, turbine digital twin, remaining life assessment and lifetime extension).
