DNV accredited for wind turbine certification in Korea

2011/09/15 07:30:31 China Wind Power NetWork
As the first international certification body DNV has received accreditation in Korea to deliver type and project certification of Wind Turbines and Wind farms. Due to the accreditation from the Dutch Accreditation Council, DNV now has official approval to handle all aspects of the certification work using its local wind experts. This provides a number of advantages to Korean and Asian manufacturers.

DNV’s team in Korea is accreted to handle type and project certification in accordance with IEC 61400-22 and DNV-OS-J101 standards. This new certification practice will result in a convenient and more cost-effective process for Korean and Asian manufacturers to achieve certification for their wind turbine and wind farm projects.

“Vast technical resources within offshore and maritime sectors, in addition to civil engineering experience, have given Korea and Asia a strong basis for developing its international wind power business. The manufacturers are ultimately targeting the global market creating a need for projects and turbines to be certified locally by globally-recognized certification bodies,” says Byoung Jun Kim, country manager of DNV’s cleaner energy section in Korea.

“This accreditation will strengthen our certification services globally, and will continue to draw on strong competence and cooperation from our office in Denmark, who has delivered such services for the two last decades. With DNV’s accredited team in Korea, we are now enabled to work more closely with our clients throughout the wind turbine certification process. Consequently, we hope this new capability will contribute to further development of Asia’s Wind Energy industry,” explains Kevin Smith, DNV’s segment director for wind energy.
