The inauguration ceremony of the General Electric (GE) wind energy training center was grandly held in Shenyang on April 15. The ceremony announced the official opening of China's first professional wind energy training center. Mr. Li Feng, President of GE Renewable Energy Onshore Wind Power Greater China, Mr. Uwe Sarrazin, General Manager of GE Wind Energy Training Center, Mr. Wen Siguo, Consul General of the US Consulate in Shenyang, leaders of Shenyang Municipal Government and Hunnan New Area, Secretary General of China Wind Energy Association, Jian Mr. Qin Haiyan, Director of Hengzheng Certification Center, and some customer representatives came to the scene and delivered speeches.
GE Wind Energy Training Center Inauguration Ceremony
In recent years, China has become the country with the fastest growing wind power installed capacity and the largest new wind power installed capacity in the world. In the future, wind turbine maintenance services will become an important part of the wind power market. However, China's wind power maintenance market is still in its infancy, and the professionalism of maintenance personnel needs to be improved urgently, while there is a lack of professional training institutions in China. The emergence of the GE Wind Energy Training Center has undoubtedly filled this market gap.
Mr. Li Feng, President of GE Renewable Energy Onshore Wind Greater China, delivered a speech
"GE has always been an active practitioner of clean energy. We are not only a wind turbine manufacturer, but also always committed to bringing advanced wind power technology and knowledge to China. We hope to use this training center to provide practical and feasible solutions for the development of China's wind power industry. Technical training will help the sustainable and healthy development of renewable energy." said Li Feng, President of GE Renewable Energy Onshore Wind Greater China.
Speech by Mr. Uwe Sarrazin, General Manager of GE Wind Energy Training Center
The first full-truth training to create a number of firsts
GE Wind Energy Training Center is not only the third GE wind energy training center in the world and the first professional training center for wind energy in China. At the same time, relying on the manufacturing and production links of the Shenyang factory, the GE Wind Energy Training Center is also the first training center in China to adopt a full-scale fan. Practical exercise. In addition, the GE Wind Energy Training Center is also the first institution to provide full-true high-altitude rescue training. Students can master the high-altitude rescue skills and escape methods of wind turbines without delaying the operation of the wind farm.

Offer a variety of courses to provide comprehensive training
GE Wind Energy Training Center has achieved all-round upgrades in terms of the size, content and training quality of the training center. Courses offered at the training center cover wind turbine construction, wind turbine maintenance, overhaul and troubleshooting, environment, health and safety (EHS), and more, and all EHS training will be aligned with Global Wind Energy Organization (GWO) standards. At the same time, GE's world-renowned non-technical courses will also be open to customers, mainly including leadership, strategy and career development. The GE Wind Energy Training Center has a full course duration of 21 days. Students can flexibly customize courses according to their own needs and have more options.
Assemble global resources and set up a model of localization
This training center tailored by GE for Chinese wind power practitioners is also the best example of GE wind power localization. This training center, covering an area of about 500 square meters, is adjacent to GE Shenyang Wind Power Equipment Assembly Park. It integrates GE's technical advantages in the wind power field over the years, global training resources, and experience in operation and maintenance in the Chinese market. It will target all wind power industry related technologies. Practitioners teach. In the future, the GE Wind Energy Training Center will provide up to 250 person-times of wind turbine practical operation and professional skills training each year, with a maximum of nearly 800 person-times trained each year.
"More than ten years ago, GE introduced 1.5M wind turbines to the Chinese market, leading the initial vigorous development of China's wind power industry. Today, GE has brought professional wind power skills training to Chinese customers, which will definitely lead the industry to improve their skills. and healthy and orderly development." said Qin Haiyan, Secretary General of China Wind Energy Association and Director of Jianheng Certification Center.
Since the first wind turbine was launched in China in 2004, GE has provided China with 46.7 billion kWh of clean power and has continued to invest in China's clean energy development. After the "13th Five-Year Plan", clean energy has become the focus of China's energy development. GE will continue to provide China with high-quality clean energy, and at the same time, it will continue to supply technical talents for China's wind power industry to help China's wind power industry flourish.
At GE, innovation opens up possibilities: we create, drive, transport and heal the world. In China, we have assembled the most outstanding talents and the most advanced technology to help China meet the most difficult challenges. In the future of energy, we will create a cleaner and better environment with efficient and environmentally friendly power. Caring first, we use advanced medical technology to serve a healthier and happier society. When wisdom meets machine, we realize human-machine interconnection and open a new industrial era. From China, to the world, we integrate resources and experience, and go to the world side by side with Chinese enterprises.
We achieve extraordinary ideas and help realize extraordinary China. GE, think, do.
