Guidelines for Manufacturing, Assembly and Testing of Marine Energy Conversion Systems
This guideline document specifies techniques for planning and building quality into the manufacturing processes and so provides an initial framework for providing consistency within the industry.
It covers the manufacture of tidal stream generators (floating and subsea), wave energy converters, offshore wind energy converters and devices generating power from a renewable energy source in the marine environment.
It does not cover offshore installations and operations already covered by the safety case regulations, shipping (already covered by the Marine Equipment Directive), land-based energy converters that are not in the marine environment, sub-components built and certified to existing national standards, or application and consideration of EU directives within the equipment and installation and cabling.
This guideline document may also be used for assessing manufacturers’ capability for producing equipment for the demanding renewable energy market and providing a basis for acceptance by interested parties.
