DNV Verify Load Calculations

15 December 2010

Certification authority Det Norske Veritas (DNV) has independently verified the calculation of predicted structural loads and forces on the blueWAVE wave energy converter is correct, thereby validating the efficacy of the blueWAVE design.

 

DNV assessed the methodology employed by Oceanlinx according to the DNV Offshore Standards protocol, with special emphasis on OS-C101 Design of Offshore Steel Structures and OS-C103 Column Stabilized Units (LRFD). This important validation of the blueWAVE design provides a high level of confidence in the blueWAVE structure and its ability to withstand prolonged marine deployment, ensuring its survival in any and all sea and weather conditions the system may encounter during its 25 year operating life.
