Ørsted Taiwan comes to Thrive
We were delighted to welcome ten enthusiastic wind turbine generator (WTG) technicians from Taiwan to the Thrive Safety Leadership centre recently. The technicians travelled to the UK for their training secondment in the UK earlier this month.
Thrive features a hard-hitting, multi-media scenario which examines the build-up to a fatal incident on a load-out operation and its consequences. Ørsted are inducting all personnel working on the Hornsea Two offshore wind farm project through Thrive.
During the next eight months, the WTG technicians will be secondees in Ørsted’s UK East and UK West Site Operations Teams and will undergo training in various technical aspects of offshore wind farm operations. They’ll also learn Ørsted’s operational safety standards, and work alongside their O&M colleagues in the UK across a number of operating wind farms in the country.
The technicians experienced the Thrive immersive safety leadership programme in its entirety and we were delighted to see the impact it had on the participants and that Thrive is useful for the wider global wind community. Bob (Chun-Yi) Chuang of Ørsted Taiwan said: “I think the lesson of today is quite important and has been priceless to me. Thrive is like reality – you have the professional facilities and know-how to touch people.”
Designed as a legacy project for Hornsea Two, Thrive is a a powerful example of innovation and excellence in the Humber’s rapidly developing renewables sector. Thrive is available to all companies working in renewables, maritime and related sectors. To make an enquiry about Thrive please email email@example.com
