Training Facility

The world-class SARETEC facility is fully equipped with state of the art workshops for wind and solar training as well as laboratories for Hydraulic, Electric-Solar and Composite material. In addition a student hub area will also be provided for students to relax in.

The centrepiece of the facility is the 126ton 2.5MW wind turbine nacelle, hub and drive train donated by German Wind turbine manufacturer Nordex. Although non-generating, it contains all the operational features of a fully functional wind turbine, and is positioned at convenient ground level, rather than on a tower 90m high.

Height training which is an important component of the Wind Turbine Service Technician course will also be offered on a proposed tower to be installed at SARETEC.
