As recognition of its contribution towards the successful execution of 99 MW CLP wind power project at Theni, India, SGS received Vestas award.
Vestas Wind Systems A/S, the world’s largest wind turbine manufacturer, seller, installer and servicing company, honored SGS with an award as recognition of its contribution towards the successful execution of a wind power project at Theni, India.
The Theni Wind Farm project was developed by CLP India Pvt. Ltd., one of the major wind farm project developers in India. Located in the south western part of Tamilnadu, a southern state of the country, the facility consists of 60 Vestas V82 geared wind turbines. Each turbine has a capacity of 1.65 MW IEC Class IIB machine with a blade diameter of 82 m. After a six-month long completion period, the Theni Wind Farm was officially opened in May, 2010.
Acting as contract engineer during project execution, SGS was responsible for ensuring that all activities were carried out at the site by the contractor in line with the final agreement. In doing so, SGS supervised the quality of construction works, the fulfillment of the technical parameters and kept the project within the scheduled time and contracted price.
To minimize the client’s risks, SGS provided dedicated project monitoring including milestone monitoring, soil investigation report review, document review, confirmation of incoming materials and equipment and final machine commissioning. SGS worked closely with the teams from Vestas and CLP and presented progress reports on a daily, weekly and monthly basis to ensure that 100% quality was maintained without accepting any quality or budget related compromises.
