Additional information 

DNV GL has been involved in offshore wind energy since 1984 and has had a dedicated wind team since 2000. The Offshore department has grown steadily in size and experience encompassing most of the technical disciplines involved in offshore wind farms: wind turbine technology; wind farm layout design; wind and energy analysis; marine civils; electrical engineering; installation; and operation and maintenance (O&M).

The department’s experience extends to analyses in practically all oceans of the world. DNV GL’s offshore wind advisory services include substantial volumes of site finding work; FEED (Front End Engineering Design) studies; bankable energy yield analyses; full due diligence analysis; logistics optimization for installation and O&M strategies; and market analysis - all benefitting from powerful internal databases and suites of analysis tools.

DNV GL will bring to the course the knowledge and understanding gained through this unique exposure of developing offshore wind technology and delivering support services for project development.
