Legislative Basis

BEK73, §10:

The producer or the supplier shall deliver the necessary service manuals to the owner of the wind turbine upon delivery of the wind turbine itself. The producer or the supplier shall forward any updates that affect the safety of the wind turbine. Furthermore, upon request by the wind turbine owner, the producer or the supplier shall forward any updates that affect the operation of the wind turbine.

Instructions to BEK73, §10:

To ensure that all wind turbines receive the right service, the service company must possess the required service manuals, including updates hereto, in particular in situations in which the manufacturer's own service company no longer performs the servicing.

The producer or the supplier therefore have to deliver the necessary service manuals to the owner of the wind turbine upon delivery of the wind turbine itself. Updates of significance for operation of the wind turbine must also be forwarded on request by the owner of the wind turbine. This also applies to service companies which make modifications; they must incorporate their modifications in the OWNERS’ as well as in their OWN service manuals (and supply these to the owner).

Implementation and Compliance

EGV collects and publishes certain announcements from manufacturers and service companies and displays these in the list below. Announcements estimated to directly affect the safety of the turbine will still be sent directly from the manufacturers to the owners of the turbines in question.

For certain announcements on this page, the publication may be time limited. It is therefore recommended that service companies save these messages in their own archive. To get announcements on the list, please send them to vindmoellegodkendelse@dtu.dk together with a written exemption from valid NDAs.
