Burlington, Mass.-based Klocwork Inc., a provider of automated source code analysis solutions for improving software security, has announced that Siemens Wind Power, part of Siemens Energy Sector, has selected Klocwork Insight to be used within Siemens' wind turbine control systems development group. With Klocwork, Siemens Wind Power can detect software defects earlier in the development process to reduce costs and ensure system reliability and overall safety.

"Siemens Wind Power is a global leader in innovative and reliable wind power products, much of which is managed by complex software," says Martin Olesen, manager of communication at Siemens Wind Power. "With the growing size and complexity of our code base, we needed a solution to enhance our already rigorous software validation process. Klocwork static source code analysis was easy to configure and set up and will allow us to enhance our software reliability while educating our developers on coding best practices."
