Windfarm Project Certification Services.

LRQA has been supporting and providing independent certification services to the offshore wind industry for more than two decades, with projects offshore the UK, Europe, Asia and USA.


LRQA draws on its decades of experience in the offshore oil and gas industries to increase the safety and reliability of offshore wind projects. We help our clients minimise risk at every point of their projects, from design all the way to installation and commissioning.

Project certification provides the required confidence and assurance that your offshore wind projects are in compliance with project requirements, applicable industry codes and standards and national requirements.

What we offer

LRQA is a recognised Renewable Energy Certification Body (RECB) for project certification against the requirements of the IECRE OD-502, as well as an ISO 17065 accredited Certification Body by the UK Accreditation Service (UKAS) for Project Certification Services in accordance with the IEC/EN 61400-22 requirements.

Our Project Certification services are undertaken in accordance with IECRE OD-502 or IEC/EN 61400-22, which are internationally recognised as the certification standard for windfarms, supported by other applicable codes and standards.
