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.
The Global Wind Organisation secretariat team were delighted to meet with a delegation of educators from National Kaohsiung University of Science and Technology today.
The group, led by Chun-Lien Su (Ph.D) Director, Maritime Training Center and Professor of the Department of Engineering (pictured, centre left), has travelled to Europe to learn about standardised training and experience GWO courses first hand.
Jakob Lau Holst, CEO of Global Wind Organisation (pictured, centre right) presented the portfolio of training standards, criteria and governance framework to the group. Jakob said: "Taiwan is set to become one of the world's fastest growing offshore wind markets and GWO is here to support the sector as it builds a skilled, locally trained workforce. We were delighted to welcome Chun-Lien Su and his colleagues to our headquarters and look forward to helping them in any way we can to adopt GWO standards in Taiwan."

Learning objectives in GWO standards are focused in the domains of "knowledge" and "skill". How often you refresh your training to maintain that knowledge and skill depends on a huge variety of factors.
