Demand for gas and increasing interest in renewables are breathing life into traditional offshore and marine energy markets. Bureau Veritas helps clients achieve safe construction and operation while producing on a cost-effectiveness and sustainable basis.
Innovating safely, managing assets efficiently
Offshore actors demand flexible solutions alongside technical expertise. Driven by the need to supply sustainable and environmental-friendly energy , engineering companies, manufacturers and operators aim at developing innovative and cost-effective solutions. While safety of people and environment remains the industry’s top priority, reduction of lifecycle cost and maximization of assets availability appear as the way forward in making oil, gas or electricity affordable everywhere in the world.
How we support you
Bureau Veritas class and certify any asset within an offshore field or farm. We support offshore actors to improve safety, optimize costs throughout their assets’ lifecycle and reduce risks during operations. . By investing in R&D and developing new standards, we also promote the business model and performance of marine renewable energy projects.
Promoting the viability of Marine Renewable Energies
Marine Renewable Energies (MRE) covers a range of technologies along different maturity timelines:
- Fixed wind—a mature technology—where wind farms are already used to generate power
- Floating wind—an emerging technology—where prototypes have been launched and full projects are now being tested
- Marine Energy Devices such as Tidal and River Energy Converters, Wave Energy Converters or Ocean Thermal Energy Converters, still in the early stages of development.
Leveraging our expertise in marine, power and offshore, we support the business model of MRE projects by providing Approvals in Principle,Type Certifications for equipment or device as well as qualifications of new technologies and power curve certifications. For projects on the way to commercialization, we propose to cover all the safety, intergrity and performance aspects of a development with a Project Certification.
