TÜV SÜD supports innovative project for offshore foundation
“We are very pleased that ESTEYCO are trusting in our expertise and experience for this complex and exciting project”, says Florian Singer, project manager of TÜV SÜD Industrie Service GmbH. Within the scope of the ELISA and ELICAN projects, TÜV SÜD's experts examine the design of this innovative concept and provide inspection and monitoring services during prototype installation. Examination of the design and support structure and of static and dynamic analyses requires close collaboration between naval architects and experts in load analysis of wind-turbine structures and concrete structures. Inspection of the condition of installation is particularly challenging.
TÜV SÜD has been recognized by the Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency (Bundesamt für Seeschifffahrt und Hydrographie, BSH) for the certification of offshore wind farms and accredited as certification body for offshore and onshore wind-energy turbines and components. TÜV SÜD's experts have extensive experience in all types of inspections, expert reports and certifications required within the scope of international offshore projects.
