Floating Offshore Wind - Application of Standards, Regulations, Project Certification and Classification - Risks and Opportunities

Floating Offshore Wind - Application of Standards, Regulations, Project Certification and Classification - Risks and Opportunities Project Objective(s) Phase 1 • Outline the key technical standards relevant to the development, design, manufacture, assembly, installation, commissioning, operation, maintenance and decommissioning of FOW in the UK. Note, this includes FOW turbines, sub-structures, mooring and anchoring systems and all electrical infrastructure including floating sub-station; • Identify and outline differences between standards and regulations (numerous) and of different certification and classification organisations (e.g. DNV-GL, Bureau Veritas, Lloyds Register); • Outline the certification process for FOW (technology, project etc), in commercial projects in the UK (see option to include assessment of the same in all major FOW markets); • Identify and outline differences between certification of different typologies (including consideration of material type) including for designs that are not based directly on O&G substructure designs; • Outline other technical regulation (for example vessel classification and certification) required for commercial projects in the UK; Phase 1 (Optional Scope) • As above, but including consideration of other key FOW markets internationally; Phase 2 • Identify areas of risk in the application of standards, other technical regulation and (should it be required) achieving project certification for commercial scale FOW projects in the UK, Note, this should include consideration of anticipated technology innovation in key areas such as mooring and anchoring systems; • Identify mitigations for the risks outlined above and • Identify opportunities to support the development of standards, relevant technical knowledge (and where appropriate the certification / classification processes) to ensure projects are developed, constructed and operated to appropriate and proportional standards.
