The first official use of the new DNVGL-SE-0074 service specification has seen DNV GL award a Component Certificate to Korean bearing company, Shin IL. This certification marks an important milestone in the harmonization of the two old legacy DNV and GL companies.
The DNVGL-SE-0074 refers to the type and component certification of wind turbines according to IEC 61400-22. The service specification is based on DNV DSS-904 and now includes more details with respect to the certification process with focus on areas where alignment was required.
The new service specification describes the generic scope for type and component certification including obligations to the customer for maintenance and reporting related to the certificate.
Mike Woebbeking, Director and Service Area Leader for Renewables Certification at DNV GL said: “By awarding this certificate we are demonstrating fantastic co-operation between the regions and the combination of exceptional expertise from both legacies across the different countries. It is a great example to our customers how we can draw on a pool of global resources to deliver the best quality needed in a local environment.”
