DNV GL Launches US Offshore Wind Certification OfficeDNV GL has established a renewables certification office in the U.S. to meet the demands for offshore wind certification services.
DNV GL selected its office in Medford, Massachusetts, as the base for the U.S. Renewables Certification group, due to its proximity to Boston and New York City.
The operations will be managed by David Maloney, who first served as Certified Verification Agent (CVA) on the Cape Wind project in 2012, the company said.
DNV GL has previously been involved in U.S. offshore wind projects through its renewable certification offices in Europe.
“By establishing a presence for Renewables Certification in the U.S., DNV GL can be more responsive to the localized needs of the industry as it grows while drawing upon our thirty years of experience in offshore wind globally,” said Kim Mørk, Executive Vice president, Renewables Certification at DNV GL Energy.
“As the world transitions to generating electricity primarily through renewable resources, offshore wind will become a crucial part of that mix, and the opportunities available in the northeast region of the U.S. are many and growing.”
