国际电工委员会可再生能源设备认证互认体系(IECRE)向Vestas颁发首个风力涡轮机证书。由制造商、能源生产商、保险公司、检测实验室和认证机构等行业发起的这项认证既简化了复杂的程序,又利于风能、太阳能和潮汐能等其他可再生能源行业的发展。

IECRE统一了认证流程,降低认证成本,一个认证体系可适用于多个不同市场。这正是整个风电行业所翘首期盼的结果。IECRE的行政秘书凯瑞·麦可玛玛说:“基于这一互认体系,所有利益相关方坚信,履行承诺,所有设备符合国际标准。”

IECRE认证体系在中美德及欧洲其他国家等全球较大的风能市场上广受欢迎,因为该认证简化了繁琐的程序。

以前,风力涡轮机必须根据不同的标准由私有认证机构在每个国家进行认证。这是一个更昂贵、非常耗时并且需要重复测试,因而需要更长的时间才能将产品推向市场。 然而IECRE体系为非常技术的产品提供了一种通用语言,这使得标准制定人员,产品制造商,管理机构和用户更清楚地了解什么是认证。同样这也让产品认证过程更加清晰,精简了认证过程。此外,IECRE认证体系鼓励更广泛行业的利益相关方参与确定认证过程,保证证书能够满足更广泛行业的需求。

风能行业首个证书颁发给了风能发电方案供应商维斯塔公司,该公司集风能产品的生产、安装和服务于一体,在全球范围广泛开展经营活动。维塔斯公司首席技术官安德·威德尔表示:“IECRE认证体系的独特之处在于,以消费者为主的终端用户、厂商以及其利益相关方都在风能产品认证体系的制定过程发挥作用。早在2012年,维斯塔公司就已开始联合其他股东,共同开发这一认证体系,我公司风力发电机组能够获得IECRE认证,我们对此感到非常开心。

而在认证机构检测实验室看来,作为可再生能源认证机构之一,DNV GL公司无论是在IECRE认证体系的发展,还是在IECRE官方认证机构的发展中,都发挥了极其重要的作用。

关于IECRE认证体系

随着电力需求的不断增长,并响应减少化石燃料在能源产领域比重的号召,可再生能源行业进入快速发展阶段。在此情况下,IECRE认证体系应运而生。

该认证体系旨在保证安全的前提下,促进太阳能光电、风能和潮汐能等可再生能

源领域的国际产品及服务贸易的发展。该认证体系涵盖了产品、服务和人员的检测、考察和认证功能。各可再生能源行业均可使用这一认证体系,

尽管该认证体系目前仅针对太阳能、风能和海上能源这三大可再生能源领域。但我们正在考虑引进聚光太阳能发电技术(CSP    )、地热发电技术和燃料电池技术等等。

 

Wind industry: Harmonized certification facilitates global market access

First wind turbine certificate issued to Vestas

Geneva, Switzerland, 2016-10-31 – Monday, the first wind turbine certificate has been issued by the IECRE, the IEC System for Certification to Standards Relating to Equipment for Use in Renewable Energy Applications.

Developed by industry players, including equipment manufacturers, power producers, insurance companies, test laboratories and certifying bodies, the System streamlines a complex process and benefits not only the wind, but other renewable energy industries such as solar and marine.

“The IECRE System for certifying wind turbines harmonizes the process and makes it less costly, so that one certificate is valid for multiple markets. It’s what the whole wind community has been waiting for. Based on mutual recognition, all stakeholders will have confidence and trust that devices are built to International Standards and perform as promised”, said Kerry McManama – Executive Secretary of the IECRE Conformity Assessment System.

IECRE certificates are valued in many of the world’s largest wind power markets, including China, Germany and other European countries, the United States, and elsewhere.

Simplifying a complex process

Previously, wind turbines had to be certified in each country by private certification bodies, according to different criteria. This was more costly, time consuming and required repeat testing. It also took much longer to get product to market. Additionally, the IECRE System provides a common language for a very technical product, which gives greater clarity to standards developers, product manufacturers, authorities and users, as to what is being certified. The IECRE also enables broader industry stakeholder participation in defining the certification process, which guarantees the certificates will meet the needs of the broader industry.

The first certificate was issued to Vestas, a wind power solutions company, which designs, manufactures, installs, and services wind turbines around the world. Anders Vedel, Vegas Chief Technology Officer commented, “What is unique about the IECRE System is that end-users, mainly our customers, together with equipment manufacturers and other stakeholders have substantially contributed to defining the new standards against which wind turbines are evaluated. Vestas began work in 2012 with other stakeholder to create such a System, so we are especially pleased that the first certificate has been issued for a Vestas turbine”.

From the Certification Body testing lab perspective, DNV GL as one of the first approved Renewable Energy Certification Bodies (RECBs), was instrumental in both the development of the IECRE and the certification body that issued the first IECRE Certificate to Vestas. See thecertificate.

About the IECRE

IECRE has been created in recognition that the ever-increasing demand for electricity and the need to reduce the share of fossil fuels in power generation have led to rapid development and growth of the renewable energy (RE) sector.

The System aims to facilitate international trade in equipment and services for use in RE in the Solar PV Energy, Wind Energy and Marine Energy sectors, while maintaining the required level of safety. Each of these sectors will be able to operate IECRE Schemes that cover products, services and personnel, to provide testing, inspection and certification.

Currently IECRE focuses on these three energy sectors; however, the door remains open for consideration of other technologies such as concentrated solar power (CSP), geothermal energy and fuel cells.
