Deutsche Windtechnik Campus has been launched


It's no secret: The energy transition doesn't end once you build as many wind turbines as possible. Operational management, maintenance and service need to follow seamlessly to ensure safe, trouble-free turbine service. Well-trained employees and proven strategies are needed for this. But without new ideas and a lot of initiative, it will be difficult to achieve these goals. The new Deutsche Windtechnik Campus is now stepping up to fill the gap and strengthen training and further education in the service sector.

Deutsche Windtechnik is currently training 52 young people to become mechatronics engineers.

Deutsche Windtechnik has always emphasised the importance of obtaining additional qualifications as well as training and further education. This is very evident at their excellently equipped Training Centers. The need for training has once again increased in recent years, primarily due to the company's steady international growth. The much-discussed shortage of skilled labour further exacerbates the situation. "This particular development challenges us to become even more active and take responsibility," said Matthias Brandt, Director of Deutsche Windtechnik. "We currently provide numerous training activities at a variety of locations, and we are in the process of organising, combining and harmonising them at the Deutsche Windtechnik Campus. We are also opening up and expanding our Campus programme, in some cases in close cooperation with external partners, vocational schools, colleges and universities. These are specific measures for vocational training, for retraining or qualification of non-specialist staff and for the further training of existing employees. The initiative covers the entire range of services: national/international – onshore/offshore – internal/external – blue collar / white collar.  

An institution with appeal for the industry 

However, the newly established Campus will not only be available to our own employees. Clients and other interested parties will also have the opportunity to gain specific qualifications at Deutsche Windtechnik. "We are looking to make the Campus an institution that will provide long-term benefits for the entire industry and stand for technical expertise, high-quality service, a variety of training programmes and personal development," said Hanna Dudda regarding the medium-term plans for the Campus. Hanna, who joined Deutsche Windtechnik at the beginning of 2023 as a Project Manager in the Business Development Campus division, continued: "The labour market has changed. In addition to skilled workers, we are now also looking for other motivated employees who we can train and develop into well-trained specialists at the Deutsche Windtechnik Campus."  

 Expanding our capacities for training and further education 

The increased investment in training capacities at Deutsche Windtechnik in recent years has been a huge success:  The company currently has more than 100 vocational training positions, and 50 percent more vocational trainees are starting this year than in 2022. The newly formed training partnerships with Deutsche Bahn and ArcelorMittal, which are the result of one of the first new initiatives at the Deutsche Windtechnik Campus, also contributed to this. In addition, a new six-month lateral entry programme has enabled non-specialists to qualify as service technicians. The first class successfully completed the training programme last summer. The second one kicked off in late summer with eight participants. 

Together with new partners and institutions  

The further training exam to become a Qualified Electrician in Industry (IHK), which was initiated by Deutsche Windtechnik and is held in English, demonstrates that cooperation and partnership result in more expedient and rapid progress. The exam, which is the first of its kind to be held in English in Germany, gives selected employees in the offshore wind energy sector the opportunity to gain a proven qualification in the specialised field of electrical engineering. This is because English is the main language spoken in everyday offshore work. The Vocational Training Centre Friedehorst in Bremen will provide the exam preparation lessons for the pilot course. The final exam will be held by the Bremen Chamber of Commerce in February 2024. "Our first activities at our new Campus show that it makes a lot of sense to bring together a wide range of institutions, political bodies and companies from the education and training sector. The different competencies, experiences and perspectives complement each other, and this allows new ideas to be developed much faster and better," Matthias Brandt said.
