In addition, GL RC notes that it has opened its fifth international office in Glasgow, Scotland. The office and staff members will deal with type and component certification for clients in the U.K. and Ireland. In addition to onshore wind, GL RC Glasgow will concentrate on offshore project certification and marine renewables.
