GWO is a non-profit organisation established and owned by globally leading wind turbine manufacturers and owners.
Members collaborate and identify work activities where the creation of standardised training can enhance safety for technicians and deliver productivity benefits for their companies.
"By definition, the BST has improved the alignment and quality of safety training because we now have a standard that delivers a baseline of competence. As an owner/operator of wind turbines, we wouldn’t allow anyone to work on site without the certification."
Collectively, GWO members are responsible for a substantial proportion of global on and offshore installed wind energy capacity.
The current GWO Articles of Association/Statutes were adopted in February 2019. GWO members pay a nominal membership fee of €650 per annum.
Members formally meet twice a year in a General Assembly in March or April, and a strategy session in September/October. In these sessions, the members formally agree on work plans for coming years and elect Chairs of the Association and Committees.
