Certification of "King Eider"

Electrical and Structural approval in place

Why is it important:
  • Third-party verification to show compliance with rules
  • Ensuring safety and reliability of demonstrator 1
  • Steppingstone towards full classification of Offshore Demonstrator
How did we solve it:
  • Approval in Principle of structural design according to Bureau Veritas NI631-rules for marine renewableenergy technologies & for structural integrity NI572-rules for floating offshore wind
  • Bureau Veritas focused on the unit’s structuralintegrity as a measure towards ensuring safety andreliability of demonstrator 1
  • Approval of electrical system according to“NEderlandseNorm” NEN 1010 rules for Low VoltageElectrical Installations. Which is a translation of the NEN 1010-ElectricalBV NI 631-StructuralEuropean HD 60364 series
