This Guide provides criteria for the design, construction, installation and survey of Bottom-Founded Offshore Wind Turbine Installations, which comprise permanently sited support structures and foundations of offshore wind turbines attached on and supported by the sea floor.
The criteria applicable to floating offshore wind turbine installations are provided in the ABS Guide for Building and Classing Floating Offshore Wind Turbine Installations.
Requirements for ancillary offshore wind farm installations such as meteorological measuring towers, accommodation units, and transformer platforms are not addressed in this Guide. For the requirements for such bottom-founded installations, refer to the ABS Rules for Building and Classing Offshore Installations
This Guide supersedes the ABS Guide for Classing and Building Offshore Wind Turbine Installations and becomes effective on 15 January 2013.
