General

This Offshore Service Specification presents the principles and procedures for DNV services with respect to Certification of tidal and wave energy converters.

The wave and tidal energy converters being installed offshore as well as inshore will be faced with many of the same environmental challenges as oil and gas installations being installed offshore. To mitigate the risks related to the lack of operational experience in the offshore renewable industry, DNV will use its experience from the oil and gas industry duly adapted to the relevant safety levels necessary for renewable energy installations. Reference is therefore extensively given to our offshore standards and recommended practices as well as international standards.

Due to the specific needs and characteristics of this industry, the certification concept is extended such that it can be defined as a robust process to provide, through independent verification, evidence to stakeholders (financiers, partners, utility companies, insurers and the public) that the marine energy converter will perform adequately within acceptable levels of safety, availability, reliability, asset integrity and environmental impact, within limits specified in the certification basis and complying, where applicable, to relevant standards.
