WINDSPOT 3.5 kW small wind turbine gets Class 1 certification according IEC standards.
Class 1 certification will allow us to be certified in the U.S. and UK, opening the most important markets for our domestic wind turbines.
About 4 months ago CIEMAT certified the power curve of 3.5 KW WINDSPOT small wind turbine. Now they have also certified its durability and the machine has been included in Class 1, that is, our domestic wind turbine supports the strongest winds and harshest conditions. WINDSPOT is the only wind turbine in its power range in the world to get Class 1.
In six months our small wind turbine has produced fantastic data in the testing field in Soria, where it has by far exceeded the requirements for certification. Thus, in the trial, the wind turbine has been exposed to winds above 18 m / s during 330 hours, though the test requires only 25 hours.
This test also checks the availability of the wind turbine, the absence of any operation faults. The result has been 100% satisfactory, the wind turbine has not failed at any time during rehearsals, though 90% of the operating time without failing is considered enough for the domestic wind turbine to be classified as safe.
Another part of the test consists of a measurement of the wind turbine power curve throughout the test to verify that it remains unchanged over time. During the six months while the machine was put to test the power performance at different wind speeds has been successfully verified.
These excellent results obtained in the trials at the CIEMAT in terms of durability, power and noise must now be sent to Intertek to issue the certifications. Thus, WINDSPOT small wind turbines will get during this summer a certification for U.S. and UK, the two most important markets in the small wind sector.
