DNV GL to support the development of offshore wind technical standards in China

The consortium of which DNV GL is a part also consists of ECIDI and CREEI. The three new standards will include offshore wind turbine support structures, offshore substations and offshore wind farm power cables. At present DNV GL is the only foreign-owned company engaged by the Chinese government in the developing of the new standards. The company will be advising the Chinese government on project financing and risk management as part of the project.

“Offshore Wind is a very demanding technology” said Mathias Steck, ‎Executive Vice President for DNV GL’s Energy business in APAC. “Standards are crucial to minimise the risks to acceptable and bankable levels, and learning from the international experience as this mandate is supporting, is a great approach to accelerate a successful industry”.

The project is part of the China Renewable Energy Scale-up Program (CRESP) developed by the Government of China in cooperation with the World Bank, and the Global Environment Facility. CRESP is intended to support the implementation of a renewable energy policy development and investment programme in China. DNV GL was invited by the China Renewable Energy Engineering Institute (CREEI) and the East China Investigation and Design Institute (ECIDI) to join the tender based on the company’s local and international experience in offshore wind,.
