25. July 2023

As the wind industry continues to expand and play a pivotal role in the global energy transition, ensuring the safety, competence, and efficiency of workers has become paramount. At RelyOn Nutec, we recognize the significance of specialized training programs tailored for the wind industry. With a focus on lifting simulation training, GWO blended courses, as well as compliance/competence management, and control of work solutions, we are at the forefront of equipping professionals with the necessary skills and knowledge to excel in this dynamic sector.

Revolutionizing Crane Operations: Lifting Simulation Training

Lifting heavy loads is not only a critical task in various industries, but also holds significance in the wind industry where cranes play a central role in maintaining smooth operations. However, the nature of lifting operations also brings about significant risks, especially when proper execution is not ensured. At RelyOn Nutec, we recognize these challenges and have developed innovative lifting simulation training programs that revolutionize crane operations and promote safety in the workplace. 


Through the utilization of advanced simulators, our training programs provide crane operators with a unique opportunity to immerse themselves in a safe yet highly realistic training environment. These simulators are designed to accurately replicate real-life lifting scenarios, allowing operators to gain invaluable experience and enhance their skills and competence. By simulating a wide range of challenging and safety-critical situations, our lifting simulation training significantly heightens safety awareness among operators. Furthermore, these simulators allow operators to analyze and optimize workflows, practice complex lifting scenarios, and enhance their overall performance. By exposing operators to a range of challenging and safety-critical situations, lifting simulation training heightens safety awareness, assesses complex operations beforehand, increases efficiency, and minimizes costly downtime. Additionally, lifting simulation training enables the pre-assessment of new staff, ensuring that the right skills are in place right from the start. 

GWO Blended Courses: Adaptive Learning for Wind Industry Professionals

The Global Wind Organisation (GWO) plays a vital role in the wind industry by setting international standards for safety training and emergency procedures. As an official GWO training provider, RelyOn Nutec recognizes the importance of adhering to these standards and offers innovative blended learning courses that integrate online theoretical modules with practical in-person training. This unique approach not only meets the industry's requirements but also addresses the challenges posed by the forecasted skill shortage and the growing demand for trained professionals.


Blended learning has emerged as a groundbreaking training delivery method, revolutionizing the traditional approach by leveraging digital advancements. At RelyOn Nutec, we have embraced this approach to develop GWO blended courses that optimize the learning process and provide several advantages to wind industry professionals. By transferring the theoretical components of the training online, learners have the flexibility to complete these modules at their own pace, eliminating the need for lengthy classroom sessions. This not only saves time but also enables individuals to access the learning materials whenever it best suits their schedule. To ensure the effectiveness of our blended GWO courses, we have integrated adaptive learning technology, a cutting-edge approach that personalizes the learning experience for each participant. This technology evaluates the skills, knowledge, and confidence levels of individual learners and adapts the course content accordingly. By doing so, we can identify specific areas where learners may require additional support or focus and provide them with tailored learning paths. This individualized approach not only enhances the understanding and retention of crucial safety procedures but also optimizes the overall learning experience for wind industry professionals.
