A new technical note on fire protection systems for wind energy plants will be presented by Germanischer Lloyd (GL) at the European Wind Energy Conference & Exhibition (EWEC) 2008.

"Technical Note For Fire Protection Systems Of Wind Energy Plants" puts manufacturers, owners, operators, investors and insurers in the position of being able to minimize their risks and initiate corrective measures at an early stage. The technical note covers fire protection systems and the requirements for manufacturing companies. Safety concepts are considered as much as tests, periodic inspections and condition monitoring.

According to GL, fire protection systems for wind energy plants can indicate a fire, ensure the fast automatic extinguishing of a fire and achieve a minimization of damages and hours of operation. In the technical note, unified requirements for effective and reliable fire protection systems for wind energy plants and their certification are stated. In addition, methods for the certification of fire protection systems are introduced.
