Gamesa has teamed up with the University of Istmo, located in the state of Oaxaca, Mexico, to offer wind turbine operation and maintenance (O&M) training in the region.

Under the agreement, Gamesa and the university have designed a four-month course that includes theoretical and practical learning. The initiative, free of charge for participants, will be given jointly by the university's professors and Gamesa specialists.

The program will make use of various wind turbine parts (e.g., nacelle, generator, cells, control cabinets, gearbox), which will be provided by Gamesa and transferred to the university's La Ventosa campus.
