TUV Rheinland has certified the HybridDrive system from wind turbines component manufacturer, Winergy, according to the GL2010 Guideline The system consists of a gearbox and generator. "We are very glad that the certification could be accomplished so quickly", said Matthias Deicke, Winergy Project Manager.

"The fact that the HybridDrive has been inspected prior to the project planning of the wind turbine by TUV Rheinland as an independent and accredited Body is advantageous for customers. The HybridDrive system has been tested and certified according to fundamental manufacturing and design specifications, enabling our client to save time and effort during the type certification process."

TUV Rheinland's Global Business Development Manager for Wind Power, Frank Witte, adds: "This certification contract with a leading component manufacturer reaffirms our expertise and capability within the wind power industry." The component certification process was expeditiously implemented shortly after Winergy's HybridDrive successfully completed all system-level prototype verifications in 2012.
