Description of the course
Target group
The Basic Technical Training modules are targeted at candidates who have no previous experience of hydraulic, mechanical, electrical or installation systems, or working with energy powered bolt tightening, but may also be used to upskill candidates who have some knowledge but not of its application in wind turbines.
Course Aims and Objective
Aims and Objectives for the BTT Mechanical Module The aim of this BTT Mechanical Module is to give the participants the knowledge and skills to carry out basic mechanical tasks (supervised by an experienced technician), using safe working procedures and the correct PPE

After having successfully complete this BTT Mechanical module, the participants will have the ability to:
  1. Describethe main components, mechanical systems and basic operation of wind turbines (Knowledge, basic level);
  2. Discuss risks and hazards associated with mechanics (Knowledge, intermediate level);
  3. Explain the principles of bolted and welded connections and their inspection (Knowledge, intermediate level);
  4. Apply manual tightening and measuring tools (Skills, intermediate level);
  5. Recognise the principles of a gearbox (Knowledge, basic level);
  6. Recognise the function of the brake systems (Knowledge, basic level);
  7. Perform inspection of brake systems (Skills, intermediate level);
  8. Recognise the function of the yaw system and how to inspect it (Knowledge, basic level);
  9. Recognise the function of the cooling system (Knowledge, basic level);
  10. Perform inspection of the cooling system (Skills, intermediate level);
  11. Recognise the function of the lubrication system (Knowledge, basic level);
  12. Perform inspection of the lubrication system (Skills, intermediate level).

The GWO BTT Mechanical Module is approved by Global Wind Organisation (GWO).
