CHICAGO -- March 25, 2014

Intertek, a leading quality solutions provider to industries worldwide, is now
recognized as a certification body in India for Wind Turbines under India’s
Centre for Wind Energy Technology (C-WET) program. This expands Intertek’s
global renewable energy capabilities, allowing manufacturers across Europe,
China, and India to take advantage of Intertek’s industry-leading response
time, capacity, and expertise.

On March 18, 2014, Intertek was enlisted as a certification body by C-WET, an
autonomous research and development institution under the Government of
India’s Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE), which serves as the
technical focal point of excellence to foster the development of wind power in
India.

“Intertek is excited to announce our recognition as a certification body by
C-WET, and looking forward to a productive partnership with this important
program,” said Sunny Rai, Regional Vice President for Renewable Energy at
Intertek. “Wind power is a rapidly evolving industry and it is more important
than ever for manufacturers selling or installing wind power in India to
understand the applicable regulations and standards. Intertek will continue to
expand our breadth of services to support manufacturers’ need to quickly
launch the highest quality new products in the global marketplace.”

Intertek now joins a select group of certification bodies recognized by C-WET
to test and certify complete Wind Turbine Generator Systems (WTGs) per IEC
international standards and GL Guidelines for safety and performance of wind
turbines.

By cooperating with this knowledge-based institution, Intertek’s services now
align with C-WET’s goal to find complete solutions to address challenges and
opportunities across the entire spectrum of the wind energy sector. Intertek’s
services to the wind power industry include type certification, type testing,
design review, compliance planning, component evaluation, field labelling,
on-site inspection, and performance characteristics reports.

Mr. Rajesh Saigal, Intertek’s Managing Director for South Asia, said, “Energy
from wind holds high promise in India as a non-conventional energy source that
can supplement grid power generation. C-WET is envisioned to foster
development of wind energy in the country, and Intertek is committed to
offering the highest level of service to the wind energy market.”

Intertek recommends manufacturers doing business in, or considering export to,
India conduct testing and demonstrate compliance to standards, as evaluation
of these factors is a required for compliance with applicable regulations.
Conducting an assessment of international regulations during the research and
development phase of a new wind energy product will strengthen a
manufacturer’s competitive edge globally.

Because Intertek offers the widest range of wind energy services, component
testing can be done concurrently with system testing for offshore, large,
mid-size, or small wind products. Intertek’s global footprint and leading
capabilities clear a path for manufacturers to quickly develop and launch
innovative new products.
