E.ON and Uniper Engineering Academy’s Offshore Wind Apprenticeships

Published 23 May 2017

After identifying a lack of technicians available to maintain its growing offshore wind fleet, E.ON collaborated with the Uniper Engineering Academy to devise an apprenticeship scheme that will deliver a sustainable pipeline of engineers. This O&M Case Study, by Dr Conaill Soraghan and Sally Shenton, examines how the programme was developed, and how it has been tailored to prepare prospective technicians for the demands of working offshore.
