The newest member of GWO's global training provider network has been unveiled
The newest member of GWO's global training provider network has been unveiled, with Guodian United Power-owned Star Wind Energy receiving its certification at a ceremony in Beijing today.
The company joins a fast-growing group of GWO certified training providers in China and is the first business in that country to receive authorisation to train both the Basic Safety Training and Basic Technical Training standards.
GWO Chief Executive Jakob Lau Holst congratulated Guodian and Star Wind Energy on its certification at a ceremony held at this week's China Windpower conference.
"I am delighted to be given the honour of presenting Guodian United Power and Star Wind Energy with their GWO certification today," said Jakob. "It is the stated aim of our Chinese member companies to have an increased number of training providers able to deliver according to GWO standards and this represents a further step in achieving that goal. I look forward to working with them and all of our Chinese stakeholders on an increasing basis over the coming months and years."
The Star Wind Energy training facility was certified by TÜV Rheinland.
We will be shutting down WINDA for a complete reboot on Friday December 13 at 14:00. WINDA will be in read only mode through Sunday but may have stability issues due to the migration and may provide unexpected error notifications.
GWO has migrated WINDA from a Django/Python solution hosted on Amazon Web Services to a solution based on Microsoft Azure.
GWO members say the value created by WINDA for safety and workforce productivity far outweigh the costs of the system
The GWO Criteria for Training Providers and Certification Bodies provide the framework and governance system around which more than 350 training providers can operate.
Global Wind Organisation (GWO) and the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) have signed a partnership agreement to highlight the importance of safety, training and job creation to power wind energy development and the global energy transition.
