DNV GL (legacy GL Garrad Hassan) offers this one-day course on wind farm projects. This course is aimed at anyone wishing to acquire a broad overview of what is involved in a wind farm project. Through introduction to the key stages of the project lifecycle, including development, construction, operation, repowering and decommissioning, the course addresses the key risks arising and the steps that a project owner can take to optimize a project from the design stage onwards. As well as covering general topics associated with any project, the course will give a brief overview of considerations for both the onshore and offshore environment.
More detailed courses covering specific areas of technical specialism, such as turbine technology, electrical systems and offshore wind energy are also available; these alternative courses would be better suited to those already familiar with the general concepts of wind farms.
The course will have a technical focus, but will also address commercial considerations within the listed topics. This course is also intended as background for those wishing to book onto the ‘Investment Risk’ course.
