CG distribution transformers receive GL Renewables Certification


Avantha Group Company, CG was awarded the certification from Germanischer Lloyd Renewables Certification (GL RC), for its liquid immersed SLIM and Bio-SLIM distribution transformers. The testing for adherence to certification norms was carried out according to GL’s Guidelines for the Certification of Offshore Wind Turbines, Edition 2012. The transformers are hermetically sealed with biodegradable fluid which reduces the risk of pollution at environmentally sensitive locations, such as offshore wind farms.

The certificates are valid for five years (2018). The certificates were awarded for CG’s system design, the implementation of design requirements in Production and Erection (IPE), and quality system. Prototype tests were conducted as a part of the Design Assessment of the components.
