BayWa r.e.'s technical operations management achieves TÜV SÜD certification
The BayWa r.e. quality management system for technical operations management has been certified by the TÜV SÜD in line with DIN ISO 9001 : 2008.
The international standard documents that all structures, processes and operations within the company are subject to constant checks and therefore a process of continuous improvement. BayWa r.e. thereby applies its high quality standards also to its own company organisation.
A multi-lingual control centre with 24/7 availability and engineers at the respective project locations enable BayWa r.e. to support international wind and solar farms as well as substations with an installed capacity of more than one gigawatt. "As a service provider in the renewables sector, we feel it is natural that we should aim to meet the same high quality standards in our internal operations as we do in our services to clients. With the ISO 9001 certification we are underlining our philosophy of quality and reliability in the interest of customer satisfaction", says Matthias Taft, Managing Director of BayWa r.e.
For the technical operations management team this certification is an important step towards making operational processes even more transparent, recognising potential sources of error at an early stage and thereby further increasing the level of trust between the company and its customers and business partners.
The ISO 9001 is an internationally recognised standard. It provides companies with a basis for continual improvement, in order to meet customer needs as well as other requirements regarding product and service quality. As part of the ISO 9001 certification process, auditors from TÜV SÜD Management Service GmbH checked individual processes, documentation, employee inclusion and the active management as exercised by the board of directors. In order to safeguard on-going quality assurance and the improvement of quality management, regular repeat checks and monitoring audits are an important and integral part of the extensive testing procedure.
