Lloyd’s Register is a recognised world leader in the provision of Independent Certification and Verification services to the offshore wind power and oil & gas industries and it can draw on decades of experience to increase the safety and reliability of offshore wind projects. We help our clients minimise risk at every point of their projects, from design all the way to installation and commissioning.
Project certification provides the required confidence and assurance that your offshore wind projects are in compliance with project requirements, applicable industry codes and standards and national requirements.
What we offer
Lloyd's Register is an IECRE recognised Renewable Energy Certification Body (IECRE RECB) for project certification against the requirements of the IECRE OD-502, as well as an ISO 17065 accredited Certification Body by the UK Accreditation Service (UKAS) for Project Certification Services in accordance with the IEC/EN 61400-22 requirements, and BSH 7005 (UKAS accreditation).
We offer certification services in accordance with the above certification schemes, which are internationally and locally recognised as the certification schemes for wind farms, supported by the applicable codes and standards.
These set out the key requirements for design, manufacture, transport and installation, commissioning, operations and maintenance of wind farm assets. The services can be expanded to also ensure that your wind farm assets meet relevant country-specific requirements and incorporate any additional requested requirements for certification.
