Global Wind Service gains UKAS Category C accreditation for Statutory Inspections

We are pleased to announce that, Wind turbine installation and service company Global Wind Service UK ltd (GWS) has just obtained UKAS Category C accreditation for Statutory Inspection Services.

“I am delighted that we have been awarded our UKAS 17020 type ‘C’ accreditation for our Inspection services, this is another step forward in our continuous improvement on our quality of service to our customers” said Martin Roberts, Area Manager UK at Global Wind Service.

To obtain accreditation GWS has continuously taken different measures and steps towards fulfilling the requirements for accreditation. The process has been somewhat delayed due to the corona pandemic.


I am extremely proud of our statutory inspections team who have been working with this. They have done a tremendous job and obtaining UKAS accreditation is not something that comes easily. It is an important achievement for us, and seal of approval towards our clients 

said Michael Høj Olsen, CEO of Global Wind Service.

Multi-disciplined inspectors are trained to inspect a wide range of different equipment in accordance with LEEA and UKAS guidance. Last year GWS obtained full LEEA (The Lifting Equipment Engineers Association) membership after only 6 months of preparatory works.
