SGS, the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing, and certification company, is attending China Wind Power 2011, held at the New China International Exhibition Center (New CIEC) in Beijing, China. For the duration of the event, running October 19-21, 2011, SGS’s team of experts will showcase the wide range of services it is offering to the renewable energy industry at stand EB27.

China Wind Power 2011 is one of the leading renewable energy conferences and exhibitions worldwide. Organized by Chinese Renewable Energy Industries Association (CREIA), Chinese Wind Energy Association (CWEA), and Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC), the three leading industry associations, the event has built a reputation as the annual meeting point for business leaders, technical specialists, and investors to learn about recent developments in the renewable energy sector.

The three-day event presents a perfect occasion for SGS Industrial Services to demonstrate its wide portfolio of Renewable Energy services, and these include Wind Turbine Blade Testing, Manufacturing Inspection, In-Service Inspection, and Non-Destructive Testing (NDT). It is also a chance to meet potential business partners.

With its comprehensive Renewable Energy services, SGS ensures the reliability and quality of wind farm structures and components throughout the intended lifetime. The key objective of Wind Turbine Blade Testing services provided by SGS is to extend the lifecycle of wind rotor blades, minimize the risks from design flaws and manufacturing defects, and guarantee the reliability of wind farm structures. Equipped with state-of-the-art technology for load application and blade test measurements, the innovative SGS Wind Energy Technology Center (WETC) in Tianjin, China offers a complete set of full-scale blade testing capabilities, including natural frequency, static, fatigue, and ultimate static tests, as well as consultancy and solutions in the field of wind turbine technologies.

The SGS team of experts is showcasing Manufacturing Inspection during the entire event. As part of the Supply Chain Services, SGS Industrial Services performs Manufacturing Inspections and Technical Inspections to ensure, by means of verification and witnessing of tests, high-quality products. Drawing on the first-rate experience and competence in the renewable energy sector, SGS provides Manufacturing Inspections to control and verify the conformity of manufactured products with technical and purchase specifications, applicable drawings, codes, standards, and other relevant contractual documents.

Attendees of China Wind Power 2011 will have a unique chance to learn more about In-Service Inspection services. With an In-Service Inspection, SGS ensures that the condition of the wind farm is maintained over time and the wind farm will perform effectively and profitably during its lifetime. Through In-Service Inspections, SGS considerably reduces wind turbine downtime, which in turn, facilitates the economical operation of the wind farm, providing sustainable operational costs with an anticipated return on investment.

In addition, SGS will demonstrate its wide portfolio of Non-Destructive Services for the renewable energy sector. SGS’s certified NDT experts inspect wind farm structures and components with regards to material composition, surface integrity, and internal conditions to minimize the risk of failures and discontunuities and ensure the best quality. In order to provide maximum added value and competitive advantage for clients, SGS follows a philosophy where the education and training of NDT operators is the top priority. The combination of experienced operators with all necessary qualifications and state-of-the-art technology makes SGS a reliable and valuable NDT partner.

SGS is eagerly looking forward to the China Wind Power 2011 and hopes to convince the attendees that its range of services and the breadth of its expertise are practically unrivaled.
