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

Poland Employs New Seismic Tech

The Polish state-controlled oil and gas company PGNiG said that its geophysical services provider Geofizyka Toruń SA became the first company in Europe to employ new seismic data acquisition technologies in searching for hydrocarbon deposits.The Polish oil and gas company said in a press release that the company is replacing the hitherto used cabled geophone networks with ultra-lightweight wireless nodal sensors. Their small size and low weight allow to conduct exploration with no harm to the natural environment and local communities.Seismic surveys are an important part of hydrocarbon exploration.

The side bulwark for the trawl lane, as well as the transom bulwark aft and the starboard side can be removed, so that the overall multi-deck area can be expanded to include the trawl lane.The building cost of the vessel have been estimated in consultation with several shipyards within continental Europe. The design study concludes that it is possible for DTU Aqua within a total budget of $51.5 million to have the 65-m ice classed multidisciplinary marine research vessel designed, built and commissioned
