Chennai, India / Varel, Germany - Two years after its foundation, Deutsche Windguard India has become an integral part of the Indian wind energy industry.
With support from its German load simulation experts, Deutsche WindGuard India has also successfully supported two of India’s most renowned wind turbine manufacturers. The load simulations performed according to IEC 61400-01 (Ed3) are a prerequisite for the renewal of their type certificates with migration to latest IEC standards. Another manufacturer commissioned WindGuard’s experts to conduct a power quality measurement campaign according to IEC 61400-21 for his prototype turbine. The services of Deutsche Windguard Wind Tunnel Services in the areas of anemometer and wind vane sales, calibration and classification are also offered to the Indian market.
