If safety in offshore wind is your priority, enter our competition to win a complementary three day exhibition pass to WindEurope Offshore.
As host of the Safety, Skills and Training Zone at WindEurope Offshore 2019, GWO has today launched a competition giving you the opportunity to join us at Bella Centre Copenhagen.
The Safety, Skills and Training Zone is a mixed use area where guests will be treated to a programme of demonstrations, debate and thought leadership. Central to the schedule will be daily demonstrations of GWO training from Demonstration Partner, RelyOn Nutec, including an exhibition first: Sea Survival training in a specially constructed indoor pool.
Combining GWO training modules into an exciting timetable, RelyOn Nutec will provide a live look at various possibilities for delivering standardised training on site, all from inside the Copenhagen Bella Centre Exhibition Centre. We will also be joined by Zone Partners Maersk Training, who are providing support and content for a specially convened GWO training providers debate.
