Ventus Engineering GmbH, supplier of end to end optimising solutions for excellence in wind turbine performance, has secured two international standard accreditations.
Receiving ISO 9001:2015 certification for its quality management system and ISO 45001:2018 certification for its occupational health and safety (OH&S) management systems, Ventus has the official seal of approval that its R&D processes, operational practices and Ventus Academy are according to the same standards everywhere.
Following the world’s most recognised quality management system standard, ISO 9001:2015 provides customers with assurance that they will receive consistent, quality products and services no matter where in the world their wind turbines are located. ISO 9001:2015 contains a set of Quality Principles, which include customer focus, leadership, engagement of people, process approach, continual improvement, evidence-based decision making, and relationship management.
Alongside this, gaining ISO 45001:018 certification demonstrates that Ventus Group operates a best-practice Occupational Health and Safety Management System. This international standard focuses on occupational health and safety, with Ventus recognised as having the systems in place to reduce workplace risks, create safer and healthier working environments that meet all legal obligations and setting targets to improve its OH&S performance further.
The international accreditations comes at an exciting time for Ventus Group, as it continues to expand into new markets. Headquartered in Vienna, Austria, the company has dedicated teams working in multiple locations, both on and offshore. Building on its success in Europe and the UK, Ventus is now also present in India, with plans for further expansion globally.
Ventus Group CTO Poul-Anker Lübker, comments: “We are extremely proud to have achieved these ISO certifications. But more importantly, the framework we have in place will enable us to expand Ventus Group faster without compromising on the quality provided in our services and products and OH&S and minimum always in line with the high standards in the wind industry.
“The timing is important, as the Ventus Group is experiencing a fast rate of growth geographically and is about to launch new products in the market. Many of our clients operate globally and we are committed to follow them wherever their wind turbines are located. We therefore have already opened new entities worldwide, and we will continue to expand into new markets.
“These globally-recognised certifications demonstrate our ongoing commitment to working to the highest quality standards, for our staff and our customers, regardless of where in the world we are delivering a product or a service.”
