BEK73, Bilag 2, stk. 3:

An approval pursuant to section 9(3) of this Executive Order is granted to the owners of wind turbines with a rotor area of 200m2 or less, if the owner can provide documentation for relevant training and adequate knowledge of maintenance and service of the turbine in question.

Furthermore, an approval may be granted to owners of certain older wind turbines with a rotor area of more than 200 m2 which the owner has been servicing himself since its erection.

Similarly, a company which does not meet the conditions under section 11(4), or a
person, may be approved pursuant to section 9(3) to carry out maintenance and service on a specific wind turbine with a rotor area of 200m2 or less, if the company or the person can provide documentation for relevant training and adequate knowledge of maintenance and service of the turbine in question.

The approval may also be granted on the basis of an application forwarded to the Energy Agency's Secretariat for the Danish Wind Turbine Certification Scheme.

The application must, as a minimum, include:

  1. 1) The name, postal address, telephone number and possibly e-mail address of the owner.
  2. Concrete information about the turbine to be serviced. Type (manufacture, size, etc.), location (siting), date of erection.
  3. The GSRN registration number with Energinet.dk.
  4. A detailed reason for applying to perform the service personally.
  5. Documentation for training and knowledge about the relevant wind turbine.
  6. A description of the scope and content of the regular maintenance (check lists), including information about the required service manuals.

The Energy Agency's Secretariat for the Danish Wind Turbine Certification Scheme may request supplementary material for use in case processing.

The approval elapses if the turbine is dismantled or sold.

Implementation and Compliance

In order to be certified to perform service on own wind turbine, please fill out an application (see Forms). This is sent to EGV together with relevant appendices stated in the list above. Please give the documents a telling name and remember to clearly state possible changes, in case some of the documents need to be reevaluated as part of the approval process. Also, please use version numbers which help with the overview and reduces the risk of mistakes which may prolong the processing time.

All of the documents are sent to:
