Four people will be given the opportunity to become Viking Energy apprentices. Windfarm developer SSE is and turbine manufacturer Vestas Wind are offering the chance to join an apprenticeship scheme. The successful candidates will learn the skills needed to become wind turbine technicians before getting the opportunity to work at Viking windfarm when it opens in 2024. The door is being left open to extend the programme, in a move which could allow a greater number of apprentices to learn about renewables. In August last year, it was confirmed that Vestas would supply the 103 turbines for the 443MW project.
