Overview

Lloyd’s Register draws on its decades of experience in the offshore oil and gas industries to increase the safety and reliability of offshore wind projects. We are heavily involved in the offshore wind market, helping our clients minimise risk at every point of their projects, from design all the way to installation and commissioning. 

What we offer

Lloyd’s Register is accredited by the UK Accreditation Service (UKAS) for Project Certification Services to IEC 61400-22.

Our Project Certification services are undertaken in accordance with IEC/EN 61400-22, which is internationally recognised as the certification standard for windfarms, supported by other applicable codes and standards. IEC 61400-22 sets out the key requirements for design, manufacture, transport and installation, commissioning, operations and maintenance of windfarm assets. We can also ensure that your windfarm assets meet any relevant country-specific requirements (e.g. BSH for Germany) and incorporate any additional requested requirements for certification.

Our certification services include:

  • Site Conditions Evaluation
  • Design Basis Evaluation 
  • Detailed Design Evaluation (Integrated Load analysis evaluation, support structure and other installations evaluation) 
  • Manufacturing Surveillance
  • Transports & Installation Surveillance
  • Commissioning Surveillance
  • Operational and Maintenance Surveillance

Our approach to Project Certification follows the modular structure of IEC 61400-22, Figure 1, where LR can complete evaluations for selected modules as requested and provide overall project certification. LR will accept conformity statements issued by other recognised certification bodies.

  • Delivery of a good, safe project certified by independent experts
  • Seamless project management
  • Access to specialist resources
