BRL 6000-21/00 certification – Power Plants of geothermal systems
Evaluation guideline (BRL) 6000-21/00
The Evaluation Guideline (BRL) 6000-21/00 relates to the design and installation of Power Plants of geothermal energy systems and the design, installation and management of the above-ground part of geothermal energy systems.
When a company designs, installs and/or manages a geothermal energy system, it must be accredited by the Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment. This has been laid down in law since 1 October 2014 in the Soil Quality Decree. To be eligible for such accreditation, a company must be in possession of a BRL 6000-21/00 certificate. Companies that have this certificate can apply for recognition from Rijkswaterstaat Leefomgeving (Bodem+).
BRL 6000-21/00 relates to the above-ground part of a geothermal energy system (the geothermal heat pump).
