On behalf of Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE), TÜV NORD has certified the prototype of the SG 10.0-193 DD offshore wind turbine. The new 10MW turbines are expected to be ready for the market in 2022. TÜV NORD evaluated the design of the prototype according to the IECRE scheme and corresponding Operational Documents (OD’s).
Furthermore, a prototype certificate was prepared according to the Danish "Executive Order on a technical certification scheme for wind turbines" (BEK73). The prototype is supposed to be installed at the Wind Test Center Østerild (Denmark) in the upcoming months.
Tests and measurements including load validation, safety and functional tests as well as power performance measurements will be carried out on the prototype. Based on the obtained results, TÜV NORD will verify characteristics of the wind turbine as assumed in the design evaluation.
Towards the final type certification, TÜV NORD also performs the manufacturing evaluation of the main components as well as the nacelle and hub assembly. Compliance with the design requirements and SGRE specifications at the production will be assured, confirming turbine’s readiness for series production.
