Ingeteam has become the first central inverter manufacturer to be certified under the Technical Supervision Regulation of conformity (NTS) with Regulation EU 2016-631, specifically for its central inverters in the Ingecon Sun Power range and its EMS Plant Controller system.
With this certification, Ingeteam is pre-empting the mandatory compliance requirement that will come into effect once the EU has passed its draft Ministerial Order transposing Regulation EU 2016-631 to national regulations. The certificate was issued by CERE (Certification Entity of Renewable Energies), recently accredited by ENAC (National Accreditation Entity) for the Technical Supervision Regulation.
The NTS defines the test procedure for inverters and additional parts (CAMGEs) such as the plant control systems and the importance of the certification of the latter with a view to the validation and certification of the installations as a whole.
The NTS certification confirms the quality of the functionalities of the Ingeteam equipment for power grid connection and support. Furthermore, the company's customers will now find it easier to quickly validate and certify their PV installations.
