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."
GWO strongly advise training providers to follow World Health Organisation guidelines for prevention in schools, workplaces and institutions, as well as to follow recommendations from national health authorities
• Vestas’ Paul Robbins elected Chairman until 2022 • Executive Committee (ExCo) elected with mandate to establish GWO trained workforce beyond 200,000 people
The team has shifted to home working for the period 12th March-27th March (or until further notice)
Third party certification bodies are an essential element in the GWO governance framework. We reveal some data about which ones have certified the most.
Certification bodies are essential in the governance system of GWO Standards. Without them, training providers cannot deliver GWO training and worker safety is potentially at risk.
