Veritas signs presitigious US contract

The Norwegian classification company Det Norske Veritas has been appointed the Certified Verification Agent (CVA) for the Cape Wind Project, the first offshore wind farm to be built in the US.

The role of DNV as CVA is to conduct third-party design reviews, inspections and other verification activities.

US regulations require that offshore wind developers submit a Construction and Operations Plan (COP) and also require that an independent third party organization is appointed to verify and certify structural aspects of the wind farm installation.

As the CVA, DNV will maintain an independent role throughout the project, “essentially acting as BOEMRE’s eyes and ears” according to Shashikant Sarada, DNV’s Project Manager for Cape Wind CVA project.

DNV is the leading wind consultancy company in the US and among the largest in the world with more than 250 employees dedicated to wind and many more contributing to wind projects from related units.

DNV has also obtained a dominant position on certification of wind turbines and project certification of offshore wind farms, particularly in Europe.

A core value to the wind industry is DNV’s independent role in developing technology standards together with the players and authorities. This supports a rapid development of the industry, ensuring highest level of safety and business value.

DNV (Det Norske Veritas) is an independent foundation with the purpose of safeguarding life, property, and the environment. The foundation was established in Norway to inspect and evaluate the technical condition of Norwegian merchant vessels.

Established in 1864, the company has a global presence with a network of 300 offices in 100 countries, and is headquartered in Oslo, Norway. Its prime assets are the knowledge and expertise of its 9,000 employees from more than 80 nations.

In the US, DNV has more than 700 employees, of which about half are based in Houston. DNV has operated in the US since 1898.
