REpower Systems has commissioned TUV SUD to carry out type certification of its new REpower 6.2M152 offshore wind turbine. The model, with a rated power of 6.15 MW and rotor diameter of 152 meters, is designed to be installed offshore with hub heights of between 95 and 110 meters.

For wind turbine type certification, TUV SUD says its team will examine and assess the overall design and all key components of the wind turbine. Completion of the type certification procedure, the subsequent launch on the market and the start of mass production are scheduled for 2015.
