TÜV Rheinland has certified the HybridDrive system from wind-turbine-component manufacturer Winergy, according to the GL2010 Guideline. The system consists of a gearbox and generator. “We are glad the certification was accomplished so quickly”, said Matthias Deicke, Winergy Project Manager. “The fact that the HybridDrive has been inspected prior to the project planning of the wind turbine by TÜV Rheinland as an independent and accredited body is advantageous for customers.
The HybridDrive has been tested and certified to fundamental manufacturing and design specifications, thereby saving Windergy time and effort during the process.”
The component certification process was expeditiously implemented shortly after Winergy’s HybridDrive successfully completed all system-level prototype verifications in 2012.
