Enabling ship and offshore designs engineering efficiency
DNV GL and MSC Software Corporation (MSC), have announced a strategic partnership to improve the productivity of engineers using DNV GL’s Sesam design and simulation software for maritime and offshore engineering efficiency.
Call for offshore verification to move with the times
Offshore verification needs to move with the times and improve its contribution to safety according to global risk management company, DNV GL. In a paper to be presented at SPE Offshore Europe 2019 this September, DNV GL will reveal, for the first-time, details of its project to develop the next generation of verification to manage risks relating to major accident hazards.
Due diligence of offshore wind farm completed
Successfully completing its due diligence work of the offshore wind farm ‘Nordergründe’ in the North Sea was DNV GL, reviewing and quantifying the technical risks of the project. DNV GL commissioned by The John Laing Group, with the assessment and analysis of the project to make its investment decision and has announced its 30% stake acquisition of the wind farm.
DNV GL to validate edge-of network management of solar energy storage
DNV GL will serve as accreditor of performance for a federally funded project at Hawaiian Electric Company demonstrating the ability of a grid management solution to deliver on-demand solar energy with energy storage. As Hawaiian Electric advances toward the goal of 100% renewable energy by 2045, the $2.4m SunShot SHINES project, funded by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), will use SEAMS (System to Edge-of-Network Architecture and Management f...
Dr. Bernhard Brand wins 2016 DNV GL Global PhD Award
The winning thesis, titled 'The integration of renewable energy into North African electricity systems,' explores how an increasing penetration of renewable technologies – notably wind, photovoltaic (PV) and Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) can be efficiently handled by North African electricity grids. The thesis is largely built around a linear optimisation model, calculating cost-minimised expansion pathways for different mid-term scenarios...
Aiding adoption of wind remote sensing technology
A new framework deal has been signed by DNV GL which demonstrates IEC compliance of ZephIR 300 wind lidar as adoption becomes standardised. “DNV GL has been at the forefront of assessing Lidar technology and other remote sensors. The objective of this framework agreement with ZephIR is to further advance the standardised adoption of wind remote sensing technology in the wind industry,” commented Detlef Stein, Global Head of Pract...
