GE Renewable Energy confirms the completion of its recruitment plan for 2018 at LM Wind Power‘s offshore wind blade manufacturing site in France. The site today counts more than 100 employees, 34% of whom are women.

New employees participated in a one-week theoretical class, followed by a week of practicing on an actual piece of a wind-turbine blade mold.

On September 10, the first group of 30 newly-hired employees, from all functions, participated in the launch of the factory’s Center of Excellence training center.

After completing the Center of Excellence course, each trainee left Cherbourg to spend a month abroad in other LM Wind Power sites – from Spain, to Denmark, Poland, and Canada depending on the job scope. Employees from LM Wind Power sites around the globe will also travel to Cherbourg to support the ramp-up of the factory.

The second group started their training program on October 22.
