GWO Centre for training, operation & maintenance and innovation in

Wind Energy & Green Tech

Onshore and Offshore

Energy Innovation AS  is a centre for training, certification, education, buisness development, innovation and R&D in the field of onshore and offshore wind power. Our focus is on renewable energy and environmental technology. Energy Innovation AS offers training according the Global Wind Organisation (GWO) standards ISO29990 and Health Safety and Environmental (HSE) for rescue services, industry, construction, and heavy equipment.  

We will also provide technical courses and offer work shops for maintenance services for the onshore (and offshore) wind industry as soon as the new building complex for Egersund Energy Hub is ready autumn 2020. Energy Innovation AS is located at Langholmen in Egersund, the west coast of Norway. Just one hour south of Stavanger (SVG) Airport, Sola.

Energy Innovation AS are in cooperation with Seabrokers Group and Bertelsen & Garpestad AS establishing Egersund Energy Hub.  

The first courses started late autumn 2018. Currently, we offer HSE courses within the GWO standard at our temporary location on Langholmen togehter with Westcon Lifting Technique, which the GWO certification is run through. But from April 2020 the GWO Certification will run through Energy Innovation.  A new building complex for the Egersund Energy Hub is now under construction and will be ready for grand opening autum 2020.

Energy Innovation AS offers assistance in business development and innovation in energy and environmental technology. We cooperate closely with NORCE (Norwegian Research Institute AS) and other Norwegian and foreign research institutes.  We also collaborate closely with Validé buisness incubator, both in Stavanger and locally through Validé Dalane. And Energy Innovation is represented in the Steering Commitee and are part of the administration of Norwegian Offshore Wind Cluster, where Manager Frank Emil Moen is working 50% as the Communication Manager for the cluster.

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 upcoming, brand new Egersund Energy Hub at Langholmen in Egersund will 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 have started and will be finished autumn 2020. However - the training started in preliminary buildings in autumn 2018.

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 will 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 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.
