Gamesa designs wind course for Mexican university

Gamesa and the University of Istmo, located in Oaxaca, Mexico, have agreed to develop specialist wind power learning in the region, the windiest part of Mexico.

They have designed a wind turbine operation and maintenance course that will last four months and include theoretical and practical learning. It will be given jointly by the University of  Istmo’s professors and Gamesa specialists.

The course, which will be free of charge for participants, is targeted at local personnel in order to generate greater knowledge of wind power by means of specialist training, thereby increasing access to the jobs that the wind power industry is expected to create in the region.
The practical side of the programme will make use of various wind turbine parts (nacelle, generator, cells, control cabinets, gearbox) provided by Gamesa and transferred to the University’s La Ventosa campus. The agreement with the University also encompasses the use of these parts by the latter’s renewable energy faculties, as well as the fostering and development, together with the broader university community, of renewable energy know-how and learning.
Gamesa already has a significant presence in Latin America and particularly in Mexico. It has developed, built and commissioned more than 170 MW, is building another 144 MW and has a portfolio of 544 MW at varying stages of development.
