DNV GL Launches Renewables Certification Ops in U.S.

With the U.S. offshore wind industry poised for rapid growth, DNV GL has established a Renewables Certification office in Medford, Mass., to meet the growing demands for certification services. While the U.S. is still a generation behind Europe in the exploitation of offshore wind energy resources, it could catch up quickly, as, according to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), there is the potential to install 22,000 MW of offshore wind projects in the U.S. by 2030. Much of this activity is taking place in the Northeast, with Massachusetts and New York setting aggressive targets and leading the

pipeline design and installation, risers, subsea pipeline asset integrity and project management.Overton also joins as a principal consultant, following seven years as senior pipeline integrity engineer at Repsol Sinopec. With a BSc in Mechanical Engineering, Overton has previously undertaken roles at DNV GL, Lloyds Register, Oceaneering and Wood.The new recruits join a team of 20 engineers who provide Xodus’ subsea integrity services, including support with pipelines, risers, subsea structures, umbilicals, controls and all other ancillary equipment. The team has also developed XAMIN, a digital

will both dramatically benefit from Hydrone-R and the entire Hydrone Program in the years to come”, said Saipem E&C Offshore Division COO Stefano Porcari.“We are proud to be the forerunner in this technology. Our extensive qualification test campaign has been thoroughly scrutinized by DNVGL and other reputable experts in order to attain a third-party qualification for subsea resident use by November 2019. Having something that can intervene in an autonomous way will reduce vessel costs and the overall carbon footprint for sure, but it will also improve the uptime of a subsea asset

New Offshore Wind Foundation Tested

A “potentially revolutionary” new offshore wind foundation is being put to the test, says hydraulic engineering and offshore renewable energy specialist HR Wallingford.The company is working with partners Offshore Design Engineering (ODE), DNV-GL, Cambridge University and the Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Catapult to test and certify the Gravity Tripod, a new offshore wind foundation concept designed by Offshore Wind Logistics and Construction (OWLC).The solution, which is currently being subjected to extensive physical model testing, is intended to help keep costs down as offshore wind

DNVGL: New Mooring Line Solution for Offshore Ops

DNV GL has developed a solution that is designed to reduce the risk of offshore floating vessel mooring line failure going undetected by replacing physical sensors with a machine learning algorithm that accurately predicts line failure in real time.The Norwegean company's Smart Mooring solution addresses growing industry concern about the high frequency of mooring line failure, and a vessel’s subsequent loss of station. Over the past two decades, more than 20 incidents have been reported globally involving failure of permanent mooring systems on floating structures.In the most severe cases

DNV GL To Perform Hywind Tampen Study

DNV GL said on Monday it is working with Equinor to undertake a third-party verification study of the Norwegian Hywind Tampen floating wind farm, expected to be the world’s first offshore wind farm powering oil platforms.Situated in the North Sea approximately 200 kilometers west of Florø, Norway, north of Gulfaks and south of Snorre, the Hywind Tampen project will consist of 11 8 MW turbines capable of meeting 35% of the annual power demand of the two oil fields, including the the five Snorre A and B, and Gullfaks A, B and C platforms. The introduction of floating offshore wind could cut
