Leading offshore wind training provider to relocate to Grimsby next month

A leading provider of training courses in the offshore wind industry, CWind Training, have announced their plans to relocate their base to Grimsby next month.

The company will move from their current site in Lowestoft to the Fish Docks in Grimsby, allowing it to widen its offering of courses and bring it closer to many of its customers.

The company’s operational headquarters is already located in Grimsby, in the centre of the East Coast’s green energy hub.

A suite of classrooms and training areas will be included at the new site, allowing 3,000 course spaces per year for those wishing to work in the offshore wind industry.

Tom O’Shea, Head of Training at CWind Training, said: “Moving near to CWind’s operational hub enables us to benefit from insight directly from live projects, working more closely with our colleagues who are dealing with the daily realities of technical work at an offshore wind farm, giving our students the most realistic training experience possible.

“On the East Coast, Grimsby is at the heart of the UK’s offshore wind industry, making it a more convenient location for our customers. With more impressive facilities, experienced instructors, courses that always reflect the latest industry requirements, modern equipment and an 18m realistic training tower, we are able to ensure high-quality training opportunities for all students.”

Martyn Boyers, Chief Executive at Grimsby Fish Dock Enterprises Ltd, said: “CWind are an important existing customer at the ‘GRO Centre’ in the Port of Grimsby East, and we are delighted that they have chosen to relocate their CWind Training base with us.

“Not only is this good news for us, as the Port Operator, but also for North East Lincolnshire Council, the wider community and for local job seekers.

“CWind Training’s decision to relocate to the area underpins the significance of Grimsby as a strategic base for offshore renewables and is great news for renewables in the Humber Hub and the wider region as more offshore activities develop.

“This move is an exciting opportunity and establishes a place of excellence within the offshore renewables industry, with Grimsby at the heart of it. We look forward to working with Wind Training and developing our facilities for some time to come.”
