Scope of application

This specification applies to prototype, type, project and component certification of tidal turbines or tidal turbine arrays.

This service specification replaces the following service specification and guideline, on the tidal subject:

- DNV-OSS-312 Certification of tidal and wave energy converters

- GL IV-14 Guideline for the Certification of Ocean Energy Converters, Part 1: Ocean Current Turbines.

This service specification is applicable to all types of turbines and their support structures, fixed or floating, and all types of substation(s) including support structure(s), power cables and subsea connectors.

A description of the terms and definitions for a tidal turbine can be found in Figure 1-1 and Figure 1-2. The tidal turbine consists of the turbine itself (rotor, nacelle and machinery), foundation with support structure (either a rigid structure connected to the seabed through foundation or a floating structure, mooring and anchors). These definitions will be used in this service specification.

The project certification of an array of tidal turbines is covered in this service specification. The project certification covers the following:

Components of a tidal turbine:

- rotor and nacelle

- machinery

- support structure and foundation

- subsea connectors.

Components of a substation are:

- transformer housing including installations and equipment

- support structure and foundation.

Cable sections of power cable route:

- asset-power-cable (e.g. turbine power cable, substation power cable)

- array-power-cable

- export-power-cable

- subsea connectors.

Onshore balance of plant:

- control station for remote operation of array

- onshore grid connection.

The subdivision of the assets into components and cable sections is done to enable optional services in verifying single components or cable sections. A statement of compliance will be issued after successful verification of an asset related component or cable section.
