Composite Technology Corporation (CTC) announced that its DeWind subsidiary received certification of the 50 Hz version of its 2-megawatt (MW) D8.2 wind turbine from DEWI-Offshore and Certification Centre GmbH (DEWI-OCC) according to the Deutsches Institut fur Bautechnik (DIBt) standards. This is an independent third party assessment that these turbine components are expected to achieve a 20-year design life under conditions that are a close approximation to IEC Class IIA wind conditions. DIBt is a German institute of the Federal and Local Governments that publishes standards that must be satisfied by wind turbines deployed in Germany.
