GLOBAL training provider, Maersk Training, has announced an agreement with Babcock Marine Training, to develop a custom-built wind energy training facility in Paisley.

The facility will launch Aberdeen headquartered Maersk Training, into the Central belt of Scotland, allowing the delivery of its GWO (Global Wind Organisation) accredited courses for the renewables industry.

The modular unit has been purpose-built to deliver a wide range of GWO accredited courses including GWO Basic Safety Training (Onshore), GWO Advanced Rescue and GWO Slinger Signaller.

James Costello, Maersk Training UK Renewables senior sales manager, said: “In spite of the challenges that 2020 has presented, the wind energy sector has continued to grow.

“The expansion of both offshore and onshore wind in Scotland will increase job opportunities and boost the economy.

“The Paisley facility allows us to deliver training in smaller, controlled groups and with so many technicians working around the central belt it allows a significant reduction in both the risks and costs associated with travel.”

Mark Graves, Babcock Marine Training managing director, added: “It is great to be working together to support UK skills and prosperity, and we look forward to forging more opportunities like this in the future.”
