OFFSHORE WIND

DELIVERING TRUST IN RENEWABLE ENERGY THROUGH THE PROJECT LIFECYCLE AND ACROSS THE SUPPLY CHAIN

Companies within the offshore wind energy space are challenged with the complexities associated with projects, mainly adhering to and meeting stringent regulatory requirements. Partnering with an independent third party can help organizations such as manufacturers, developers, owners, investors, lenders, utilities, and policymakers mitigate the risks and navigate federal regulations and permits needed with the development, assessment, and operations of projects.

CERTIFIED VERIFICATION AGENT (CVA)
Bureau Veritas is a Certified Verification Agent (CVA) with proven success and is currently a trusted partner on a number of US-based offshore wind projects. Bureau Veritas meets the CVA nomination criteria set forth by BOEM according to 30 CFR 585 Subpart G § 585.706 (b) (1 – 7), as well as (c) and (d). BV has the formal structure in place to conduct CVA verification activities for offshore wind projects including the demonstration of independence and measures for the avoidance of Conflict of Interest. Accreditation certificates have been obtained, namely Bureau Veritas accreditation according to ISO/IEC 17065 and the ISO 9001 certificate as well as the Certificate of Acceptance to participate in the IECRE - IEC System for Certification to Standards relating to equipment for use in renewable energy applications.

FULL LIFECYCLE OF OFFSHORE WIND SOLUTIONS
Project Certification: Project Certification confirms that a specific offshore wind project complies with a set of rules and guidelines. The scope of the project certification usually includes verification of site-condition assessment, design basis, structural design, manufacturing, installation and commissioning.

  • ITC Verification: Investment tax credit verification and photographic documentation to capture annual expenditure for supply, fabrication and construction activities on a given offshore wind project.
  • Manufacturing Facility Assessment and Certification: Technical assessment of the quality management system for fabrication facilities involved in the fabrication of critical components such as the WTG, WTG support structure and foundations, ESP equipment and structural components.
  • Owner’s Engineering: Owner's Engineer is a subcontracted role; undertaken to protect the owner's interests by ensuring that the technical and build contractors are adhering sufficiently to the project specification.
  • Marine Warranty Surveyor (MWS): Marine Warranty Surveyor services are performed during the transportation and installation phases of the wind project.
