Offshore wind industry training provider relocates to Grimsby

CWind Training, a provider of health and safety, offshore skills and training courses to the offshore wind industry, is relocating to Grimsby.

Planned for May this year, the move from CWind Training’s current base in Lowestoft to the Fish Docks, Port of Grimsby will allow the company to widen its course offering.

The relocation will also bring CWind Training closer to many of its customers and CWind’s operational HQ in Grimsby, in the centre of the East Coast’s green energy hub.

The new location offers a suite of classrooms and training areas that will increase CWind Training’s current capacity to allow over 3000 course spaces per year for the essential training required to work in the growing offshore wind industry.

Tom O’Shea, Head of Training at CWind Training, part of the Global Marine Group, 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, 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 CWind Training and developing our facilities for some time to come.”
