Ingeteam Frequency Converter Gets DNV GL Certificate
Global certification body DNV GL has awarded component certification to Spanish technology company Ingeteam for its new frequency converter – the DFM 3000 Ingecon® Wind – which can be integrated in on- and offshore wind turbines up to 3.5 MW.
This is the first component certificate to be awarded by DNV GL according to its own globally applicable standard for electrical installations in wind turbines, combining all the requirements of the previous GL and IEC guidelines.
With this certification, Ingeteam has confirmation that its frequency converter meets all applicable guidelines for on- and offshore use.
“This is our first component certification for a frequency converter. Early on, we looked into suitable certification bodies,” Alberto Barcia González, Platform Manager, R&D, Wind Business Unit at Ingeteam, said.
”We are very happy with our choice of DNV GL, due to their solid technical expertise and the consolidated guidelines. Certification to the globally recognized DNV GL standard gives our customers proof of the high quality of our DFM 3000 Ingecon® Wind converter. It makes the process of new turbine development easier and speeds up the integration of our components.”
