ABS Consulting Enters Indian Wind Market, Completes Noise Emission Test for SRC Green Power's WTG
(Houston) ABS Consulting (the Company), which operates in India through its subsidiary ABS Industrial Verification (India) Pvt. Ltd., recently completed its first noise emission test in India for SRC Green Power's wind turbine in Tirunelveli, India, just southwest of the state capital, Chennai.
The noise assessment of the 250 kW wind turbine generator (WTG) was conducted by the Company's IEC 61400-11 accredited subcontractor, WIND-Consult. The test took three days to complete and provided feedback on Noise Emission decibel levels at wind speeds ranging from 6 m/sec to 10 m/sec. This testing qualifies SRC Green Power's 250 kW WTG in European markets and will also help SRC Green Power achieve Type Certification of the WTG.
"This is a key project for ABS Consulting as it marks the Company's entry into the rapidly growing Indian wind market for Wind Turbine Certification and Consultancy Business Stream," said Dr. Jan Ibsoe, Vice President, Renewable Energy, ABS Consulting. "We are proud to include this new service in our portfolio and we will continue to provide support for wind-power generation in India as this type of power continues to grow in the region."
SRC Green Power is a leading manufacturer of 55 kW / 200 kW / 225 kW and 250 kW wind turbines in India for export to European, North and South American markets.
