Bureau Veritas (BV) said it has signed a framework agreement with LM Wind Power, a supplier of components and services to the wind industry, to cover the certification of wind turbine blades to international standards.

The contract follows a collaboration between both companies, sharing knowledge and working together to fully understand the requirements and needs. This engagement and shared commitment are now cemented with the framework agreement and the first certification assignments are being undertaken, BV said.

LM Wind Power’s VP Business Development & Strategic Alliances, Frank V. Nielsen, is confident that the new agreement will benefit LM Wind Power’s customers and the industry in general: “We already have a successful working relationship with Bureau Veritas on our ISO 9001/14001 and OHSAS 18001 certifications. It was only natural for us to include the rotor blade certification as well, thereby effectively expanding the qualified certification offer in the industry. Based on its large competence base, customer focus and global footprint, Bureau Veritas lives up to our requirements for a value-adding certification, which allows us to deliver a documented and highly reliable product to our customers.”

John MacAskill, Head of Renewables for Europe, said, “Bureau Veritas Certification is proud and delighted to be working with a leader in its field like LM Wind Power. Almost one in four blades worldwide is an LM Wind Power blade. The confidence shown in Bureau Veritas is significant and we look forward to supporting it in this exciting and growing market.”
