GWO Centre for training, operation & maintenance and innovation in

Wind Energy & Green Tech

Onshore and Offshore

Energy Innovation AS  is probably the worlds most comprehensive centre for training, certification, education, buisness development, innovation and R&D in the field of onshore and offshore wind power and green tech. Our focus is on renewable energy and environmental technology. We are located in Egersund, on the South West Coast of Norway. Just one hour south of Stavanger (SVG) international Airport, Sola.

Energy Innovation AS offers training according to the Global Wind Organisation (GWO) standards for the wind industry - both technial and HSE training, and Health Safety and Environmental (HSE) for rescue services, industry, construction, and heavy equipment.

Energy Innovation is also delivering training onsite in the wind farms: GWO BST, GWO Advanced Rescue, GWO Enhanced First Aid and special adapted trainings developed by us: 1) "Accident Managment training" 2) Crisis Managment training og 3) Environment Accident training. We also provide rescue/emergency onsite training with the local and regional SAR-services, Air Ambulance, Ambulance and Fire brigades for respective regions and wind farm operators. 

In August 2021 Dalane Vocational College moved in with us with the only school based Wind Techncian education in Norway. In a strong Private Public collaboration, we have further developed both public and private education and training for the renewable sector through the german BZEE training standard, and together with the Polytechnical College of Rogaland County, both with national and international participants. All our trainings will be conducted also for english speaking participants.

We also offer workshops for maintenance services for the onshore (and offshore) wind industry in the new building complex at Egersund Energy Hub, where also many companies within the on- and offshore wind sector already have moved in togehter with us.

Energy Innovation AS also offers assistance in business development and innovation in energy and environmental technology, and is a partner with Sustainable Energy Norwegian Catapult Centre. We collaborate closely with NORCE (Norwegian Research Institute AS) and other Norwegian and foreign research institutes and Universities.  Energy Innovation is represented in the Steering Commitee and are part of the administration of Norwegian Offshore Wind Cluster.

In October 2020, we started the Energy Innovation-initiated Horizon 2020 project ROBINSON on integrated energy systems and greenhouse gas cuts on Eigerøy as the main demo island with 7 Million Euros in support from EU. In the summer of 2022, the Erasmus+ Center of Vocational Excellence in offshore wind and offshore H2 production will start with 4 Mill. Euro in support of the EU.

Our next face of ongoing development is setting up a franchise model for establishing centres like Egersund Energy Hub in new markets, buidling local skills in a fast growing industry where upskilling and reskilling is cruscial. We have so far signed intention agreements with Mandeville Louisiana, Szczecin in Poland and Türkiye. Several other nations are also interested. Our goal is to build a strong collaborative global network for training and development for the on- and offshore and green tech industries all areound the world.

Our courses


Egersund Energy Hub Langholmen

Our goal is to build the world's most extensive wind energy qualification centre in a new, structurally contiguous complex in the Port of Egersund, in the heart of the Rogaland region. The brand new Egersund Energy Hub at Langholmen in Egersund have several different companies collocated together with Energy Innovation, developing strong synergies between different players in the energy, engineering and industrial sector, and in training, certification, education and R&D. The constructions of the centre was finished autumn 2020. The training started in preliminary buildings in autumn 2018, but are now conducted in the brand new building complex.

Training programs

We provide certification for the GWO (Global Wind Organisation), but also plan to provide more extensive technical courses through a cooperation with partners providing up to 80 different training modules altogether. For GWO HSE we provide all safety training modules, both basics and refreshers, as a one-stop shop: 1) First Aid,  2) Manual handling, 3) Fire Awareness, 4) Working at Heights 5) Sea Survival 6) Advanced Rescue and 7) Enhanced First Aid. Together with us in the centre - the vocational education of Energy Operators for wind and hydropower - the only one in Norway, at Dalane Technical College will be located from August 2021.

From Egersund Wind Farm

Location: Egersund, Norway

Given the training requirements arising from the development of several large onshore wind farms in the region, Egersund’s central and thus excellent location in South-West Norway, as well as the lack of suitable training infrastructure in Norway, the training centre started operation in 2018. In June 2020 the Norwegian Government opened two areas for offshore wind - with Egersund placed strategic in the middle, with possible installed capacity of 4,5 GW.

We are training according to GWO (Global Wind Organisation). Further - the training centre will train several different courses - not only towards the wind industry but also towards industry, building & constructions and others.
