Eocycle expands its certifications and enters new markets

Eocycle’s flagship EO25 direct drive wind turbine has achieved three significant new certifications, supporting the company’s expansion in several markets.

Montréal, Tuesday, March 27th, 2017 - Eocycle's flagship EO25 direct drive wind turbine has achieved three significant new certifications, supporting the company's expansion in several markets. These certifications are: IEC 61400-2 (global markets), AWEA 9.1 (U.S.A.), and MCS (U.K.). The certifications were performed by SGS, a global leader in inspection, verification, testing and certification of wind turbines. They represent the highest standards in the industry and further validate the wind turbine design and performance. This also marks an important milestone in Eocycle's global expansion, particularly in the United States and United Kingdom, where certifications are required to be able to benefit from local market incentives.

"I am extremely proud of the ingenuity and hard work of the Eocycle team. These certifications solidify the new EO25 platform as the most competitive wind turbine in its class in the world. We have already received numerous inquiries from around the world and have many projects aligned for the months to come. I am looking forward to a great year," says Richard Legault, President and CEO of Eocycle.

"With these new certifications, Eocycle achieves an important milestone as the company is now ready to launch its product into new markets and expand its activities on a global scale. The promise we saw with our first investment is now coming to fruition and we're very proud to be a partner of the company's success" says Andrée-Lise Méthot, Founder and Managing Partner of Cycle Capital Management.

In addition to these certifications, Eocycle offers a range of product solutions for its wind turbine systems to meet the most stringent local grid interconnection standards. This includes solutions to meet the requirements of UL1741 / United-States, G59 / United Kingdom and CEI-021 / Italy.

All Eocycle wind turbines, including the EO25, utilize their in-house, patented generator technology and are manufactured, tested and quality-checked in North America.
