    Asked by WOZ_RVO.nl 616 days ago Answers (1)

    We would like to know if there is a preference in the use of norms and standards for certification in the Borssele project and if so, which is the hierarchy when using them. We are also interested in knowing which certification bodies will be accepted in the Netherlands or whether we can make use of external companies if these are accepted. Is it possible to use Eurocode as the main standard for design or are other offshore specific standards such as DNV, GL and IEC preferred?

        Eurocodes can be applied if they concern offshore windturbines. All international accepted norms and standards can be used. For detailed information we refer to the draft SDE+ and permit application form, page 13, appendix 11, see here. The certification body must be independent. It is industry standard to use a certification body accredited by a European national accreditation body. Certification by a non-accredited body will not be accepted.
