Renewable energy

WTG Technicians offshoreEconomic development depends on sufficient energy sources. Increasing demand for energy and soaring prices for conventional energy resources has stimulated the development of new forms of energy from renewable sources. So new infrastructure and technologies for electrical energy production are being developed in different ways.

In cooperation with TÜV Rheinland, IQTC provides comprehensive services in the field of renewable energies (wind and solar energy) — from training technical staff in the maintenance of renewable energy systems to technical support and relevant testing.

We prepare wind turbine technical service specialists.

We train technical staff in the following areas:

Inspection, repair and maintenance of wind turbine rotor blades

Target audience:

This course is meant for everyone who intends to work in the industry of the alternative energy supply, particularly – the wind power supply, and for everyone who intends to specialize in the maintenance and service of the wind rotor blades.

The aim of the course:

To prepare fully trained and qualified specialists in wind turbine rotor blade inspection, repair and maintenance. To acquire the methods of inspection and repair of constructions made of composite materials on the basis of the polymer matrix.
