Services for the unique needs of offshore wind certification
Compared to onshore wind farms, offshore installations remain more complex in terms of structural design, installation and maintenance. Sites built farther from the coast demand that turbines, their components and the entire wind farm go through thorough development and planning to demonstrate that they are a worthwhile investment.
We have pioneered research in the offshore environment and gathered knowledge and expertise from various offshore projects. The certification process for offshore wind turbines and components is similar to onshore installations. However, it may require integrating additional technical criteria to the testing and certification process. Similarly, the foundations for offshore turbines are often designed for specific projects. UL Solutions offers assessment services for construction documents and can help you interpret existing rules and guidelines so you can establish an adequate, cost-efficient design.
