Siemens Gamesa has been awarded provisional type certification by DNV GL for the 8.0-167 DD wind turbine.

“This is an endorsement of the reliability, stability and low-risk of the DD platform,” the manufacturer said.

The company added that a provisional type certificate is an important milestone because it “verifies the design and provides independent proof of performance and safety in accordance with international standards and systems”.
The turbine has a 167-metre rotor, 81.5-metre blades and is expected to enter serial production this year.

“This achievement highlights our ability to ensure a short time-to-market while keeping the highest standards on quality and performance for our products,” Siemens Gamesa said.
