HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/06/12 -- Modular Wind Energy (www.modwind.com), a manufacturer of innovative rotor blades for large-size wind turbines, has achieved certification from Lloyd's Register Quality Assurance (LRQA) as an ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management Systems compliant organization for the design, manufacture, installation, and service of wind turbine blades. LRQA is accredited by American National Accreditation Board (ANAB).
ISO 9000 is a family of standards related to quality management systems. It is designed to aid companies in ensuring their business processes are robust and applied consistently across the entire organization, in an effort to more competently serve its customers.
To become certified as ISO 9001:2008 compliant, Modular Wind Energy underwent a 9-month process that included the implementation of a formal quality management system, robust employee training on formal operating procedures, and implementation of measurement systems related to quality. The process culminated with a 5-day, third-party audit by LRQA to confirm that Modular Wind Energy's quality systems were fully implemented and met the standards required. Upon completion, a certificate of registration was formally issued on September 27, 2012.
Achieving ISO 9001 certification means that Modular Wind Energy was benchmarked against other mature businesses and found to have a best-in-class quality system. Certification is often viewed as a requirement to do business in the renewable energy sector.
"We recognize that building a quality, process-based business is a journey and believe we have the right organization and certification agency to ensure we continue to challenge ourselves to get better every day," said Ken Kaser, Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations.
ISO 9001 is a worldwide standard administered by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), based in Switzerland. ISO 9001 is currently in use by close to one million organizations around the world. Additional information is available at http://www.iso.org/
About Modular Wind Energy
Modular Wind Energy produces wind turbine blades featuring a revolutionary structural technology that results in longer, lighter, more reliable blades. This allows our customers -- manufacturers of multi-megawatt wind turbines -- to offer a lower cost of energy.
Our patented design and production process produces the highest quality composite components, allowing us to manufacture divided blades without risk of certain serial defects associated with conventional blade building techniques. Our blades feature greater stiffness, strength, and up to 20% lighter design for very large blades, enabling larger rotors and ultimately a lower cost of energy compared to conventional blades.
Modular Wind Energy is a privately held company founded in 2008. The company is headquartered in Huntington Beach, California with a satellite office in Hamburg, Germany.
