GL Noble Denton evaluates London Array offshore wind risks

GL Noble Denton has won the contract to perform Marine Warranty Survey services for the 1 GW London Array offshore wind farm in the UK.

During the offshore installation of the 175 wind turbines for the 630 MW Phase 1, GL Noble Denton will confirm that technical risks are kept within acceptable levels. Phase 1 is expected to be completed by the end of 2012.

"The transportation and installation of huge, awkwardly shaped structures offshore involve risks that can only be mitigated by adhering to codes and standards," says Gabor Bohner, who heads GL Noble Denton's Department for Marine Operations and Marine Warranty Survey in Hamburg.

GL Noble Denton verifies the requirements of the insurer in the warranty clause in connection with the respective marine operations to ensure that all necessary precautions are taken to avoid loss.

The range of activities for Marine Warranty Survey comprises the review of all relevant documents, the condition surveys of vessels and equipment, and the approval of marine operations during loading, transportation and installation phases.
