The award by DNV to full certification of the ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management System comes after a recent two-day intensive on-site review of AW-Energy’s procedures, processes and ‘deep dives’ into projects.

Marja Moisio, project and quality manager at AW-Energy, said: “By earning ISO 9001 certification, AW-Energy has demonstrated its compliance to meet or exceed high levels of operational and management quality. We are delighted to have succeeded again with this latest award which is testament to our efficiency, smart processes and continual improvement.”

The re-certification to the ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management System standard is approved for another three years, until 2025.

ISO 9001 is an international standard which specifies a set of requirements for operating a quality management system that meets the needs of customers and other stakeholders. Holding ISO certification allows AW-Energy to continually monitor and manage performance across its business to identify any potential areas for improvement and ensure the business operates as efficiently as possible, the company said.

“The certification provides that essential independent in-depth analysis of our company for us and our stakeholders. It helps to provide assurance to our customers; and investors and financiers looking to confirm the bankability of our company or our technology or portfolio of wave energy products, such as our advanced wave energy industrial package called WaveFarm,” added Moisio.

The WaveFarm project is created by AW-Energy and funded by the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund that has created an industrial package comprising the WaveRoller wave energy converters, all WaveFarm infrastructure, logistics, life-cycle services, product documentation and everything else that a customer needs to produce stable renewable energy.
