The program aims to prepare skilled workers, technicians, team leaders, researchers, and scientists for the offshore wind industry. Participants will learn topics in electrical machinery, fluid systems, operations and maintenance, leadership, corrosion management, and offshore safety and survival. Participants will explore wind turbine performance characteristics under varied wind conditions in a wind tunnel. They will also learn about assemblies and components in wind turbines, common failures and faults, maintenance strategies and related risk analysis from availability and maintainability perspective. Assembly, installation, and maintenance of small-scale wind turbines are done in laboratory conditions. The program prepares participants for the wind industry certifications and advances many soft-skills like communication and leadership.
