The CVA Review: A Discussion of the Scope and Nomination Process
Track: Inside the Lines
A project’s Certified Verification Agent (CVA) carries significant technical influence throughout the design, fabrication and installation phases of offshore wind farm development. However, in federal waters, the role is largely untested beyond the design phase. As the first several commercial-scale projects advance towards CVA nomination, and, in parallel, the Industry works to refine recommended certification practices, the scope, schedule, and commercial implications of the CVA role are actively being defined. On this panel BOEM and industry representatives will discuss the CVA nomination and approval processes, key technical areas subject to review, and expectations for the evolution of the role.
