Twenty students from India, Turkey, China and Indonesia participated in the four-week long DFC offshore course.

The twenty students visited DTU Risø Campus for two weeks in September and additionally two weeks in November in order to learn how to plan offshore wind energy in their home country.

As part of the course, they visited the blade factory belonging to Siemens Gamesa in Aalborg, Østerild Test Centre, MHI Vestas’ preassembly factory in Esbjerg, Esbjerg Harbour, Danish Energy Agency as well as Ørsted.

“It has been an amazing course,” says Niels-Erik Clausen, who is responsible for the course. He continues:

“Seventeen teachers from DTU Wind Energy and DTU Management Engineering has contributed to the course. The students have thus met people, who work with the different areas of expertise.”
