Parts of offshore wind farms such as blades and foundation piles are located in the port of Vlissingen. They are impressively large. Large ships are needed to bring these parts to the wind farm zone at sea. You don’t just build a wind farm at sea. That requires technology and people. Peter Geertse of Havenbedrijf Seaports knows all about it.
At Scalda an mbo school, Nout Nagtegaal confirms the demand for well-trained technicians who can work in a wind farm. These students are sure to have a job in the wind energy sector after obtaining their diploma. They will be able to work anywhere in the world.
