ACCIONA Windpower has received seven new certificates for different models of its AW 3000 wind turbine from GL Renewables Certification. ACCIONA says it now has 15 certificates awarded for the 3 MW platform.

Specifically, GL has issued the design certificate for the AW 125/3000 IEC IIIa wind turbine, with a 125-meter rotor, 120-meter concrete tower and 61.2-meter blade, for grids of 50 and 60 Hz. ACCIONA says the model is specially adapted for sites with low wind speeds.

GL has also given the type certificate for another six models of the AW 116/3000 turbine with a 116-meter rotor. ACCIONA says the certificate indicates that AWP has a quality management system according to ISO 9001, that the manufacture of the main components of the turbine is done in line with quality standards, and that the turbine is capable of passing the prototype tests defined in current standards.
