Taipei, 14th December 2020. CWind Taiwan announced that it is sponsoring up to 100 Taiwanese students and local fishermen to participate in a GWO pilot project, aiming to raise the candidate’s awareness of offshore safety and develop their general understanding of the offshore wind industry in Taiwan.
CWind Taiwan is organising five sessions open to individuals from local universities, technical colleges as well as the fishing association. The pilot project, which began earlier this month, will provide a general introduction to the offshore wind industry through lectures and workshops, including fundamentals of the GWO working-atheight and sea survival modules. The sessions will enable the participants to develop industry knowledge as well as to experience a taster of the working conditions, highlights and demands of a career in this growing sector.
Tom Manning, Deputy General Manager at CWind Taiwan, said: “As with all companies involved in Taiwan’s offshore wind sector we face the challenge of attracting people to join this new industry. CWind Taiwan is in a unique position; having established our training school, TIWTC, back in 2018 we’re able to run this pilot project and to take huge leaps forward in educating the prospective Taiwanese workforce and supporting their entry into the industry. We’re optimistic that from the positive feedback we’ve received so far, and the further sessions planned, we will see a number of the delegates go on to enjoy long and successful careers in the sector.”
