Evance R9000 passed the UK’s standard.


2nd June 2011 – Evance Wind Turbines, a leader in the manufacture of small wind turbines, is pleased to announce that its R9000 5kW wind turbine has been granted Conditional Temporary Certification (Conditional Certification) by the SWCC (Small Wind Certification Council).

This Conditional Certification has been granted as the Evance R9000 passed the UK’s standard, the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS), in July 2010. The R9000 was one of the first small wind turbines to pass all the MCS tests which covered durability, reliability, safety and overall performance.

“The R9000 is an excellent design. Today over 600 turbines are producing energy for home owners, farmers and businesses round the world and we have turbines operating in over a quarter of the US states,” commented Kevin Parslow, CEO of Evance Wind Turbines Ltd. “I see this as another positive step in strengthening our North American programme and fully expect to have full SWCC certification within the stated eighteen months.”

“At the SWCC we verify that small wind turbines meet or exceed the requirements of the AWEA standard. This provides a consistent standard giving customers confidence in the performance of a turbine,” stated Brent Summerville, Technical Director, Small Wind Certification Council.
