Outland Renewable Energy LLC has established a national training center where wind turbine technician safety and technical training will be administered. A five-year facilities-use agreement with Minneapolis-based Wind Energy America gives Outland exclusive access to two Gamesa G52 850 kW turbines and shop space located at the Midwest Center for Wind Energy, which is 25 miles from Outland's Canby, Minn., operations office.
‘As we've grown from a handful of technicians to a team of more than 100, the need for a dedicated technician training center has grown as well,’ says Steve Scott, Outland's CEO. ‘The facilities-use agreement with Wind Energy America satisfies this need and will help ensure we remain a benchmark for safety and efficiency in the U.S. wind industry for many years to come.’
