DNV GL’s role in the project is the provision of feedback relating to existing and draft IEC TC 114 Technical Specifications for the tidal sector. This is to be performed on some specific projects under MET-Certified and is also based on many years of experience harnessed from work carried out as certification body/third party in certification and verification projects for tidal energy converters.

DNV GL, as a leading certification body, has pioneered third party activities in the marine renewables sector, by developing certification schemes based on technology qualification process as described in DNVGL-SE-0163 ‘Certification of Tidal Turbines and Arrays’, as well as the risk-based standard DNVGL-ST-0164 ‘Tidal Turbine’. The knowledge accumulated by DNV GL in this subject will be used towards the objectives of the MET-Certified project
