The DFM 3000 Ingecon® wind converter is a mature technology used by many of the main turbine manufacturers for wind turbines up to 6 MW suitable for on and offshore applications.

The project
Component Certification of Ingeteam's new frequency converter. The DFM 3000 Ingecon® wind converter offers operational flexibility, energy management benefits and compliance with technical regulations. The Ingeteam converter can be integrated in on- and offshore wind turbines up to 3.5 MW. The certification confirms that wind turbine component is designed, documented and manufactured in accordance with design assumptions, applicable standards and technical requirements for safety, function and quality.

This is the first component certificate awarded by DNV GL according to its own globally applicable standard for electrical installations in wind turbines. It combines all the requirements of the previous GL and IEC guidelines in a compact, clear and concisely worded way. With this certification, Ingeteam has confirmation that its frequency converter meets all applicable guidelines for on- and offshore use. DNV GL examined the converter in all aspects of development, documentation and manufacture to ensure safety, functioning and quality. This Component Certificate makes it easier for Ingeteam to sell the converter to wind turbine manufacturers gloablly. Certification of the DFM 3000 Ingecon® wind converter underlines Ingeteam’s technical expertise as a manufacturer of efficient and reliable frequency converters, and positions it as a trustworthy supplier of components for wind turbines.
