Germany: TÜV SÜD to Test 30 Siemens' Turbines

TÜV SÜD has received an order from Siemens Wind Power to test wind turbines in the North Sea.

For the Borkum Riffgat project, the TÜV SÜD Industrie Service GmbH will test a total of 30 wind turbines from Siemens. The services include testing of lifts, pressure tanks, cranes, ladders and fall protection as stipulated by the law.

“I am pleased that Siemens has selected TÜV SÜD,” says Alexander Heitmann, Head of Offshore Wind Services, TÜV SÜD Industrie Service GmbH in Hamburg. “With this order, we can combine our experience in testing of installations with our proven offshore expertise.”

The tests will be carried out first on land and after the installation of the equipment at sea.
