Wind energy

New ideas for a traditional technique

Using wind to generate energy has been a technique used since ancient times. It ranged from simple wind wheels, wind mills throughout to sailing ships. The technology currently used focuses primarily on wind power systems with three-blade rotors in onshore and offshore facilities. With comprehensive services from a single source, TÜV NORD is dedicated nationally and internationally to this future-oriented and environmentally-friendly form of energy generation.

Numerous tasks – one contact partner

The TÜV NORD services also include the certification and inspection of wind power systems in the areas of planning, manufacture and operation. These include:

  • Certification of systems and system components
  • Production inspections
  • Site appraisals, project inspections, due diligence examinations, ground expert reports
  • Performance curve measurements and acoustic inspections
  • Quality management
  • Risk and damage assessments
  • Acceptance testing and regular inspections

Our attainment at the wind energy sector

Connected with the base

Any technology is only as good as its scientific basis. This applies both to the research for new discoveries and to realistic testing of the products that result.
