OWINGS, MD--(Marketwire - Nov 1, 2012) - ComRent, the leading provider of load bank rentals and service, today announced the company was named the Gold Winner in the Golden Bridge Awards Program for its wind farm power testing solution. ComRent's offering is widely recognized for the ability to enable faster, easier commissioning of wind turbines.
The coveted annual Golden Bridge Awards program encompasses the world's best in organizational performance, innovations, products and services, executives and management teams, women in business and the professions, innovations, case studies, product management, public relations and marketing campaigns, and customer satisfaction programs -- from every major industry in the world. Organizations across the globe are eligible to submit nominations, including: public and private, for-profit and non-profits, large and small, and start-ups.
Specifically, ComRent took first place in the "Green, Eco-Friendly and Cleantech - Innovations" category. ComRent is the only load bank rental company in the US with solutions designed specifically for testing wind farms. It includes a complete commissioning system that includes resistive and reactive load banks, generator, and switchgear -- linked directly to the wind farm. This delivers less guesswork and more control over pre-grid commissioning, ensuring the wind farm is on schedule to generate revenue from the beginning.
"Unlike competitors, our custom-engineered solutions are designed specifically to meet the requirements of wind farm commissioning. This provides highly accurate testing and faster deployment -- delivering an extremely solid ROI to customers in both reduced commissioning costs and faster commercial availability," said Clay Taylor, Founder and CEO, ComRent. "It's truly an honor to be named a winner by this group of industry experts."
More than 40 judges from a broad spectrum of industry voices from around the world participated and their average scores determined the 2012 Golden Bridge Business Awards winners.
