Products or services in MRE
Bureau Veritas Certification offers several services:
- Studies in the design phase: Bureau Veritas offers an independent third party service to assist you in controlling risks and ensuring the reliability of your wind farm projects.
Our services help you in the design phase to optimize the project. All data are taken into account and analyzed in the project.
- Type Certification: The purpose of type certification is to verify that a type or model of wind turbine (or wind turbine component) is designed, documented and manufactured in accordance with design assumptions, specific standards and other technical requirements.
- Project Certification: The purpose of Project Certification is to ensure that the entire project (including wind turbines, foundations, structures and fleet-specific equipment) is in compliance with external conditions, applicable codes, and other requirements relevant to a specific site. It promotes a quality approach, while identifying and minimizing risks and thus protecting investments.
- Assessment of the supply chain quality: The Bureau Veritas network is based on a unique network of local and international locations. In order to control the supply chain and ensure quality during the supply phase, our experts visit and inspect wind turbine manufacturers, supervise and inspect the production of parts and carry out verifications during assembly. .
- Inspection of wind farms under construction: Once the manufacturing phase is complete, the construction and commissioning phase begins. The objective of this phase is to ensure that the quality and safety of projects are maintained, from the start of the parts of their manufacturing site to their installation within the planned deadlines. We check the relevance and completeness of the instructions given by the manufacturer and their correct application when putting the machines into service.
- Operational safety: Once the construction of your wind farm is complete, the operational phase begins and Bureau Veritas continues to accompany you on your project. We provide services to assess the compliance of your facilities with applicable regulations. Our team ensures that the condition of the wind farm is maintained over time and that the certification of the project remains valid.
- State of play of wind farms: Bureau Veritas Due Diligence services support owners and investors in their acquisition projects, and in any transactions involving a change of ownership.
