Press Release Body: Wind turbine manufacturers, wind farm owners and utility

of availability, which lead to financial losses.

As a result of their partnership, RSA and SGS are able to improve owners' internal
rate of return on investment via risk minisation, and adequate insurance cover with
fair premiums for all wind farm projects, from the project planning stage through to
the operations.

verification, testing, and certification services for onshore and offshore wind farm
projects. In the planning phase, SGS carries out site assessments and site specific
design verification of wind turbines and foundations.

SGS is the reliable partner not only for the design of wind farms, but also for life
the cycle of a wind farm. SGS provides independent project inspection services by

SGS clients can enjoy reduced exposure to loss and damage as well as mitigate the
loss of earnings as a result of failures and accidents in the farms.
