Title ATTP: Adapting a Transparent Training Program for wind energy
Project Number 2012-1-DK1-LEO05-05250
Project Type Transfer of Innovation
Marketing Text The qualifications for servicing a wind turbine are basically the same across Europe, but on the other hand the educational background differs quite a lot today. In this project we have made an international standard for vocational training in Wind turbine servicing.
There are three main aims for this project:
1) To make it easier for new workers to enter the European Wind Industry.
2) To make it easier for the (global) wind energy production companies to get qualified staff for installation and maintenance of the wind turbines.
3) To make the employment procedures more efficient.
Description Lots of new wind power plants are being planned and constructed. Companies across Europe have realized that it is already difficult to get qualified vocational labour for maintenance and repair and wind turbines! In the future, the need will become even bigger, because renewable energy, such as, wind power, are predicted to play a major role in tackling the twin challenge of energy security and global warming.
