If you enjoy the challenge of working by hand and are not afraid of acrophobia, then career option as wind turbine technician is for you.
Wind turbine technicians are working on the maintenance and installation of wind turbines. When someone reports that the wind turbine is broken, the wind turbine technician climbs about 200-400 feet and repairs the broken part.
We also provide regular diagnostics and inspections to ensure that the wind turbine is functioning properly. The wind turbine technician is also responsible for replacing broken parts of the wind turbine.
Wind Turbine Technicians must maintain records of all of the services that are performed. Turbine maintenance requires precise measurements, a strict order of operations, and numerous safety procedures. 2.Mechanical skills
Windtechs must understand and be able to maintain and repair all mechanical, hydraulic, braking, and electrical systems of a turbine.
3.Physical stamina and strength
Wind Technicians must be able to climb to the tops of turbines, often with tools and equipment. Technicians must lift heavy equipment, parts, and tools, some of which weigh in excess of 45 pounds.
Wind turbine technicians need to diagnose and fix problems. If the turbine is not working properly, the technician will need to identify the cause and make any necessary repairs.
Don't be afraid of height and tight space. Wind turbine technicians repair turbines that are over 260 feet high. You need to work in a limited space to access the mechanical parts of the turbine.
It’s a must without practical experience you cannot move in the career. So doing an internship will be always helpful for you to know and understand the pros and cons of the field. It will help to get the hands on skills.
