1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:


As a wind turbine technician I am made to look after the wind turbines, including annual service, troubleshooting, retrofits and pretative maintenance. We work in teams of 2 up to 6 and can spend a whole day on a single turbine or carry out work on multiple in a given day.

Day to day involves a morning brief, sailing out to turbine, carrying out the days work, sailing back and then a demob at the end of the day.

2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?


I’ve developed multiple skills in my apprenticeship such as working with mechanical and electrical systems, work on hydraulics as well as pneumatic. I’ve worked on troubleshooting techniques and how to diagnose faults.

I’ve also worked on team leading, time organisation and the importance of being a team player.

3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?


I’ve enjoyed the programme very much and developed skills that will stay with me my whole career.
