LR is one of the world’s leading maritime classification societies. Building and classifying a vessel to their notation sets a benchmark for the design, build quality and fit out of vessels working on offshore windfarms.

Their standards are designed to minimise risks for those working offshore by setting minimum quality and redundancy standards for the vessel’s materials, hull structure, and the vessel’s systems and machinery.
