GL Renewables Certification (GL RC) has published its new Technical Note for the Certification of Wind Turbines for Tropical Cyclones.

According to the company, an increasing number of onshore and offshore wind parks are proposed in cyclone-affected areas, mainly in the U.S., China, Korea and Japan. GL RC says the note is a supplement to its Guidelines for the Certification of Wind Turbines and addresses the question of how cyclones are influencing wind turbine designs.

The note can optionally be applied within the certification procedure and defines the additional design requirements to be considered for type and project certification, as well as requirements for site assessment, the company adds. It was prepared in cooperation with academia and industry and includes knowledge from research and from already-existing wind parks.
