GWO is proud to announce that Shanghai Electric has joined the organization as a new member.
Shanghai Electric is a company tracing back to 1902, and is currently the leading brand of China’s industry, and the largest manufacturer of steam turbines. Shanghai Electric Power is a subsidiary of one of China’s largest state-owned power generating groups, specializing in renewable energy. Nearing the end of 2016, Shanghai Electric Power had a 9.5 gigawatt installed capacity, and 29,293 employees as of 2017 for the whole of Shanghai Electric.
Old versions of GWO standards are available for three months, but our survey discovered 30% of training providers could be waiting up to 12 weeks to implement the new version.
Basic Safety Training (BST) version 11 and Basic Technical Training (BTT) version 4 will no longer be valid from 1st July. Use of unpublished versions by GWO training providers may be considered a non-compliance.
As Taiwan prepares to develop 5.5 GW of offshore wind by 2025, a delegation from the country's leading science and technology university visited GWO on a fact finding mission.
When a new member company joins GWO, an onboarding process begins to help align safety practices with established, global standards. We report on The Nordex Group’s plans which include merit for up to 500 working at height certifications.
GWO has begun its first project to translate its standards and criteria into another language.
