Wood Group experts join British wave power and tidal energy standards body

Four employees working in Wood Group’s renewable energy subsidiary have joined the British Standards Institution (BSI) to develop industry standards for the wave and  tidal power sector.

The BSI is the UK National Standards Body responsible for overseeing the national standards making process and for nominating representatives from the UK on a number of European and International committees and working groups.

As committee members on the UK working group providing input into the International Electrotechnical Commission’s (IEC) marine energy committee, they will be responsible for reviewing documents submitted to the committees, circulating new proposals and drafts for comment, as well as attending meetings with fellow committee members.

  • Andy MacGillivray and Robert Clayton will sit on the PEL/114 Marine energy – Wave, tidal and other water current converters committee.

The group, which provides the UK input into the IEC/TC114, is responsible for the development of Standards in the field of Marine Energy – Wave and Tidal Energy Converters.

  • Robert Clayton and Roisín Fahey will assist with the development of the IEC/TC 114/AHG 7 “Assessment of information received on IEC TS 62600-201 – Marine energy – Wave, tidal and other water current converters – Part 201: Tidal energy resource assessment and characterization” technical specification. 
  • And Katie Gracie-Orr will sit on the IEC Technical Committee 114, Ad-hoc group 4: “Assessment of information received on IEC TS 62600-200, Power performance assessment of electricity producing tidal energy converters”.

This group assesses information received on IEC TS 62600-200, the technical specification defining an industry-standard methodology and reporting format for the power performance assessment of tidal energy devices.
