Adwen has obtained DNV GL’s type certificate for its AD 5-132 offshore wind turbine.

According to Adwen, the milestone marks the culmination of the turbine’s certification process. The AD 5-132 has been designed and certified as special class, covering the some of the most demanding offshore sites worldwide, including the subtropical monsoon climate of typical offshore markets in Asia.

In addition, says Adwen, the turbine is designed to resist typhoons, as well as environmental conditions such as high temperatures and humidity.

“This type certificate is an important step forward for Adwen as it confirms the technology performance of the AD 5-132, which has been designed to support extreme weather conditions while guaranteeing reliable performance and maximum energy output – thereby optimizing the levelized cost of energy,” comments Maite Basurto, Adwen’s chief technology officer.
