Wind turbine training set to support safety compliance

After identifying a niche opportunity in the marketplace, a North East company has launched a new electrical safety training course designed for engineers, technicians and operators working with wind turbines.

Complying with UK and EU Health & Safety legislation is a requirement for all operators working in the power and electrical industries, or those sectors that use high voltage equipment and the new Wind Turbine High Voltage Training Course designed by The Faraday Centre, meets all such regulations and directives. Moreover, one of the UK’s leading energy suppliers has already enrolled its technical team on the course and The Faraday Centre is reviewing and auditing its wind farm site procedures to maximise safety for all personnel working on site. The course is unique and the Middlesbrough based high voltage training specialists aim to provide businesses operating in the sector with reassurance that employees are competent in high voltage operation and meet strict health and safety standards.
During the five days, delegates participating in the course will receive a mix of in-depth practical training at the company’s purpose built facility, as well as theoretical tutoring from experienced and qualified professionals. The company works with some of the UK’s leading energy companies and operators, but the course was also developed with smaller niche businesses and individual technicians in mind. In fact, many smaller firms are making the transition into the renewable energy sector and as such the course provides an extensive insight into the technical expertise and knowledge required to operate in this field.
Suhail Mitoubsi, Group General Manager, The Faraday Centre, says: “As the renewable energy sector continues to grow apace, particularly across North East England, we recognised a real market demand for electrical high voltage training designed specifically for this burgeoning industry. Using our expertise we developed the Wind Turbine High Voltage Training Course, which is unique to the region and also to the UK. We are currently scoping out a bespoke programme for a leading global energy provider and believe the course will appeal to large organisations, as well as individuals wishing to diversify and enhance their skill-set. 
“The course has also been launched at our facility in Limassol, Cyprus and later this month we are conducting sessions for the Electricity Authority of Cyrus to ensure that all wind turbine operators working for the organisation have completed high voltage safety training.”

The company has devised an annual course schedule, but it can also offer bespoke training sessions upon request. Furthermore, throughout 2011 the company plans to introduce further high voltage training for other markets within the renewable energy sector. As one of the UK’s leading providers of electrical training, The Faraday Centre has over twenty years experience in the power and electrical industry. While the company provides both low and high voltage safety training to a variety of sectors, it is the company’s high voltage expertise, which truly sets it apart from its counterparts. The Faraday Centre woks with businesses and organisations from the energy, power, marine, onshore and offshore, environmental energy, manufacturing and processing industries, among others, to ensure they are working within and meeting stringent EU Health & Safety guidelines and restrictions. It delivers in-depth practical and theoretical training courses and consultancy from its purpose built facility in North East England and provides a wide range of courses to suit all levels of competency and experience.
