At the China Wind Power in Beijing, TÜV NORD handed over the world's first component certificate in accordance with the latest certification guideline for wind turbines IECRE OD-501 to Sinoma Blade.

In September 2018, the IECRE OD501 replaced the established IEC 61400-22. Within the transfer phase, TÜV NORD was able to issue the new component certificate for the Si59.5D rotor blade within a very short time, based on an existing IEC 61400-22 certificate, and to hand it over in due time.
