Bureau Veritas NR 493: Ciel et Terre floating structure and mooring design certified

10/11/21

At Ciel & Terre, we engineer the Hydrelio® floating solar solution and design optimized floating PV plants. We pay great attention to each market and site’s specificities. Therefore, our main motivation is to offer highly reliable products and FPV plants. We do so because their liability is the origin of the bankability of floating solar projects. As a result, on Ciel & Terre’s initiative, Bureau Veritas has provided in 2020 and updated in 2023, technical support to define a certification scope for floating structure design and mooring design. Consequently, the study concluded that within the scope defined, Ciel & Terre technology is in line with applicable Rules and Regulations.

A CERTIFIED ANCHORING DESIGN

Our  calculation methodology, design of the mooring system, as well as our Hydrelio® photovoltaic farm has to be compliant with the applicable Rules and Regulations Bureau Veritas NR 493. These rules are classified under the Classification of Mooring systems for Permanent and Mobile Offshore Units.
The methodology applied for calculation of mooring loads and associated safety factors equally have to be in compliance with the applicable Rules and Regulations.

A QUALIFIED FLOATING STRUCTURE DESIGN

Some criteria, as the designs of floating structures and their degradation have been defined by Ciel & Terre. Consequently, these criteria, reviewed by Bureau Veritas are relevant with good engineering practices. In fact, there are no standards for floating structures. As such, it is the development methods, qualification and industrialization process are deemed compliant according to sound engineering.
Ciel & Terre fulfills the requirements of Design of the mooring system and floating structure. Indeed, a design evaluation conformity statement, issued by Bureau Veritas, accredits our floating structure designs and anchoring.
