Training on real offshore technology
Seaworthy: A total of almost 1,400 offshore wind turbines with a capacity of over 6,600 megawatts are in operation in Germany on the North and Baltic Seas. Offshore wind conditions are significantly more favourable than onshore.
The German government intends to promote offshore wind energy up to a capacity of 15,000 megawatts by 2030. In recent years, the use of offshore wind energy has gained considerable momentum throughout Europe, proving it to be the engine of global growth in offshore wind energy.
In 2018, offshore wind turbines with a capacity of around 2,660 MW were connected to the grid for the first time. By the end of 2018, offshore wind farms with a total capacity of c. 18,500 MW were connected to the grid in Europe.
Offshore training at the heart of Europe
More and more men and women are now working out at sea. Whether service technician or board member: Anyone wishing to enter an offshore wind farm must first undergo appropriate training. OffTEC is never far away: There is no other training centre anywhere in Europe which offers so many training opportunities at one location.
80 km from Eckernförde, 100 km from Esbjerg, 170 km from Hamburg, 350 km from Copenhagen, 980 km from Stockholm, and 1,000 km from London, we offer ideal conditions for offshore training in the wind and maritime industries.
