Netherlands-based Oceans of Energy B.V. has received a statement of conformity from Norwegian quality assurance and risk management company DNV for the design basis of its offshore solar solution. The statement confirms that the design methodology complies with the comprehensive set of requirements and guidelines provided by DNV’s Recommended Practice for the design, development, operation and decommissioning of floating solar photovoltaic (FPV) systems – DNV-RP-058. A prototype offshore solar farm design will also be verified by DNV at a later stage.
Oceans of Energy had been awarded the contract to install and operate offshore solar within the Hollandse Kust Noord offshore wind farm by CrossWind, a joint venture between Shell and Eneco, in April this year. According to the company, this would be the first offshore solar farm in the world to be connected, installed and operated within a wind farm in high wave conditions. The offshore solar farm will be implemented in 2025, and the wind farm will be operational by the end of 2023.
Oceans of Energy plans to build offshore solar farms with a capacity of 150 megawatts by 2028.
