U.S.-based GE will build a new wind education center in Shenyang to offer a variety of training courses intended for GE field personnel, customer technicians, subcontractors and other external stakeholders.
Total financial investment figures for the project were not released.
The approximately 500-square-meter facility will be built on the same campus as GE's current manufacturing operation in Shenyang.
Courses offered at the wind education center in Shenyang will focus on topics like wind turbine maintenance, troubleshooting and environmental health and safety. EHS training at the new center will adhere to common standards set by the Global Wind Organization. The center will also offer some non-technical skills training courses including sessions on leadership, strategy and career development.
Construction of the wind education center is scheduled to begin later this year, and the facility is expected to open in early 2016.
