ZF Wind Power’s SHIFT 4k platform received a “type and component certificate” from the international classification society DNV GL, for its complete platform range.
In the past, every gearbox design had to go through a long administration process of calculation files, validation results, and more. As of now, all SHIFT 4k designs are covered with the “type and component certificate.” Customers will profit from the certificate as it speeds up processes, thus saving time and money and boosting productivity.
As time is valuable, this certificate from DNV GL will save costs for OEMs and turbine owners. In the past, the administrative process could take a few months and now, thanks to the platform’s certificate, the gearbox is ready to be installed immediately.
Consequently, turbines or upgrades can be installed faster and thus productivity will increase.
