Regulations – Wind Turbines 

 

The search for regulations for Wind Turbines is not as easy as for the aerospace sector. Most of the regulations we found for Wind Turbines are copy-righted, cannot be downloaded, stored, distributed and so on. But, of course, you can buy them.

Engineers' ToolKit gives a link to the new DNV regulation for offshore wind turbine structure (for download) and continues searching for more regulations necessary for engineering activities. The FAA regulation on obstruction to air navigation (wind farms in the USA close to airports) also included.
