MHI Vestas Offshore Wind has been granted provisional B type certification for its V164-8.0 MW offshore wind turbine from DNV GL.

According to MHI Vestas, the certification acknowledges conformity with standards for the design, testing and manufacturing of the turbine and gives a green light to proceed with commercial sales.

"The certification of the V164-8.0 MW from DNV GL underlines that the development of the turbine is proceeding according to our plan and demonstrates compliance with the industry-leading standards for design, quality, manufacturing and testing – a very high priority for our customers," says Torben Hvid Larsen, MHI Vestas' chief technology officer.

MHI Vestas notes that provisional B type certification is awarded for a limited period and acknowledges some minor outstanding issues that must be addressed in order for the type A certification to be granted.

"We are very confident that the minor outstanding issues will be completed and documented according to our plan by the first quarter of 2015," adds Larsen.
