DNV GL awards shop approval certification to Ingeteam’s converter manufacturing plant

Ingeteam, an independent global supplier of electrical conversion equipment, announced today that it received DNV GL’s “Shop Approval in Renewable Energy” certification for its wind converter manufacturing facility in Northern Spain. This certification, granted after an audit of extensive depth and rigour, will reduce and simplify the manufacturing audits or possibly even exempt Ingeteam and its present or future customers from any manufacturing audit for the next three years.

The DNV GL Shop Approval service certifies that a workshop operates with approved production facilities, working procedures, methods and qualified staff. It is independent from component, type or project certification and is always workshop specific.

The facility is an important manufacturing centre for Ingeteam, where 200 employees deliver electrical conversion systems ranging from 660 kW to 10 MW, as well as the associated control equipment.

“The Shop Approval standard is more than the typical product certification,” explained Ana Goyen, Managing Director of Ingeteam’s Wind Business Unit. “It is a comprehensive audit that will help us and our customers to reduce and simplify the manufacturing audits or possibly even exempt us, and any of our present or future customers, from having to pass DNV GL plant inspections for a period of three years. This certificate will enable us to reduce the time and costs for any future equipment to be manufactured at our plant. It represents a serious guarantee of manufacturing quality and delivery for the customers.”

The certification concept for shop approval provides evidence to stakeholders that a manufacturer has demonstrated verifiable capability for the manufacturing process. It is relative to an approved scope of work to comply with a set of requirements identified as being critical for the manufacturing processes. With this scheme, DNV GL offers next level certification and standardization, going beyond modules and elements to include all technical aspects laid down in standards and recommended practices.

 “Our certification schemes have been adapted to meet market needs and stakeholder expectations. The shop approval service is designed to provide a flexible and modular concept, to address individual needs, and to reduce costs for the manufacturing process without compromising the added value and quality,” commented Mike Wöbbeking, Head of Certification Body & Service Area Leader of Renewables Certification at DNV GL.

Thermal Energy Forum 2017 Bucharest, Romania

THE DIPLOMAT BUCHAREST organizes the third edition of its national Forum exclusively dedicated to thermal power - Thermal Energy Forum 2017, on March 16, at InterContinental Hotel Bucharest – Rapsodia Hall.

According to the Energy Strategy issued by the Ministry of Energy, more than half of the 60 Romanian localities benefiting from the district heating supply systems (SACET) require substantial investments in upgrading their heat distribution networks and in replacing the ageing cogeneration plants with new ones.

The Strategy promotes the integrated local planning of new high efficiency cogeneration capacities and of thermal insulation programmes.

Another key area of strategic intervention emphasizes the programmes for increasing the energy efficiency of dwellings.

The investments should be channelled mainly for the thermal insulation of blocks of flats, with maximum impact in terms of energy savings and number of inhabitants, as well as to energy efficiency measures in households entitled to heating subsidies, with maximum social and public budget impact. Financing may be both private, supported by appropriate regulations (including to facilitate the development of ESCO services), and public, such as local budgets, the regional and central budgets, as well as structural funds.

To reach the annual target of thermal rehabilitation of at least 3% of the overall number of public buildings, schools, hospitals, administrative buildings etc. will also be prioritised.

We invite you to take part in a debate on the current state and future opportunities for the Romanian thermal energy sector, the European directive "Energy Winter Package 2016" and the impact on the national energy policy, updates on the National Heating Program 2006 - 2020 - "Warmth and comfort, promoting systems based on high efficiency technology".
