We verify three new environmental product declarations (EPD) for Siemens-Gamesa

2018.02.02

EPD certification approves the quantification of environmental impact associated with the generation and distribution of 1 kWh of energy

Throughout 2017, Siemens-Gamesa has developed and verified the Environmental Product Declaration for electricity generated at a European on-shore wind farm using its wind turbine models G126-2.625MW, G132-3.465MW and G114-2.5 MW respectively.

These studies have been verified by TECNALIA as an approved entity by the International EPD® system and accredited by ENAC to audit, verify and certify Environmental Product Declarations.

The purpose of obtaining EDP certification is to rigorously quantify the environmental impact associated with the generation and distribution of 1 kWh of electrical energy produced by its wind turbines.

The unit of reference for the quantification of impact has been 1 kWh of electricity generated via an on-shore wind farm (in each case using specific wind turbine generators), located in Europe and operating under specific wind conditions (IEC III-a -slight wind for Model G126 2.625MW and medium wind – IEC II-for Models G132 3.465MW and G114-2.5 MW), and later distributed to 132 KV by the European electricity grid"

An EPD is an objective method of quantification of the environmental impact of products or services. It allows environmental product information to be disclosed for business to business communication.

The verification by TECNALIA consists of ensuring the conformity of the Life Cycle Analysis and the EPD with the reference Product Category Rules, the General Rules of the International EPD® Programme and the ACV ISO 14040 and 14044 Standards. The quality, traceability, veracity and reliability of the data used in the study have been verified by means of a document review and an on-site audit. 

Environmental Product Declaration SIEMENS GAMESA

Once conformity has been checked, TECNALIA CERTIFICACION has issued the certificates corresponding to the verification of the Environmental Product Declaration, which are valid for 3 years and they have been registered and published in the International EPD® system.
