UGE has completed third party power performance testing, culminating in a certified power curve for its VisionAIR wind turbine.
The power production testing of the VisionAIR was performed in accordance with the IEC 61400-12 by the laboratory Intertek in their small wind test facility in upstate New York, USA. The testing confirmed that the turbine begins exporting power at wind speeds as low as 3.5 m/s. This certification is in addition to the electrical safety and noise emission certifications the turbine has already received. The VisionAIR turbine will continue spinning as it looks to complete the AWEA 9.1 certification in the coming months. Commercial versions of the product are already installed and operating in dozens of countries around the world, with many additional projects to be installed in 2014.
