ComRent's Wind Farm Power Testing Named Golden Bridge Award Finalist

Innovative Power Testing Solution Enables Faster Commissioning of Wind Turbines

Owings, MD, September 20, 2012 – ComRent, the leading global provider of load bank rentals and service, announced today its wind farm power testing solution has been recognized as a finalist in the 4th Annual 2012 Golden Bridge Awards within the Green, Eco-Friendly & Cleantech - Innovations category. The annual Golden Bridge Awards program spotlights achievements and positive contributions of organizations and individuals from all over the world. Winners will be honored during the 4th annual awards dinner and presentations on Tuesday, October 2, 2012, in San Francisco, CA.

ComRent rose to the top as a finalist from considerable competition for its understanding of the challenges associated with commissioning new wind turbines, and its innovative patent-pending solution to shorten the commissioning process and get the renewable energy online faster. Clay Taylor, Founder & CEO of ComRent, explains further.

“Wind turbines are designed to compensate for power being used and apply or un-apply a load based on this design," Taylor said. “However, this process causes standard commissioning equipment to malfunction, or at least act erratically, which causes test delays, wasting valuable time and money. ComRent’s innovative solution compensates for turbine intricacies to permit more accurate testing and quicker commissioning. This provides an attractive ROI to our customers both in reduced commissioning costs and faster commercial availability. We are honored to be considered for such a prestigious award."

ComRent’s Vice President, Global Development, Paul Clewell, adds, “The proliferation of wind power and the generating capacity of wind farms globally continues to trend upward. We are pleased to be able to provide our innovative testing solutions to developers, manufacturers, and contractors across the globe to help meet the growing demands for reliable power."
