Offshore Wind Turbine Training Facility Opens in Blyth

The Port of Blyth in northeast England has opened a £1m wind turbine training facility for offshore wind technicians. The facility features a dedicated training centre with a Vestas V47 wind turbine and a duplicate nacelle that allows safer technical training at ground level.

The training centre at the Bates terminal is the UK’s first and aims to close the skills gap with training in working at height, rope access, blade repair & inspection techniques, advanced rescue and emergency response simulation.

Port of Blyth’s Chief Executive, Martin Lawlor, said…

“Seeing the turbine being hoisted into position is a great milestone for us. Port Training Services has been at the forefront of the port skills agenda for many years and this development represents a huge opportunity for them to widen their offering to a high growth sector in the coming years.”
