Hereby EROM becomes the first company of the Iberian Peninsula and one of the world’s first ten to have a training center authorized to give the Basic Maintenance Training (BMT).

GWO is a non-profit organization formed by wind turbine owners and wind turbine manufacturers, being Acciona one of its members. It is a worldwide reference with the aim of striving for an injury free work environment in the wind turbine industry. That is the reason why the first standards defined by the GWO were a Basic Safety Training and a Basic Safety Training Refresher. EROM is a training provider of these courses since 2015 and it gives them currently in two formative own centers in Spain, in Arteixo (A Coruña) and in Tafalla (Navarre). Nowadays 100 % of EROM´s field personnel is trained under this standard.

 After the broad acceptance good reception of the safety standards and meeting a long-time sector demand of creating a standard in technical formation, this summer the GWO presented the definitive version of the latter that consists of three modules: electricity, mechanics and hydraulics. Bureau Veritas audited in August EROM's formative center and it passed with zero non-conformities.

This means a step further in the improvement of the formation and training of the professionals who take part in EROM's organization and its Direction expects that it has a positive impact in the quality of the performed services and in the safety of EROM's personnel, since the modules enhance in the more dangerous works within the maintenance activity.

In order to achieve this, training programmes are provided by the Health and Safety Department of EROM so member of the Emergency Agency of Navarra may know wind farms and get used to its conditions (working spaces within wind turbines and usual dimensions), risks and protocols in case of accessing to them. 

During this training programme, two groups of 15 delegates of the Emergency Agency were performed at the EROM´s Training Centre, located in Tafalla (Navarra). This training centre is certified for the provision of safety training under the GWO´s standard (Global Wind Organization). A 16 hours-theoretical and practical training allowed members of the Emergency Agency to get used to works at heights equipment, as well as to perform practices on works at heights protocols, emergency evacuations, rescue of injured technicians within wind turbine´s blades and hubs.

This collaboration was signed by both Parties in 2015, being aware of risks involved within the wind industry maintenance-activities to which emergency services of the Foral Community of Navarra must face in case of an assistance.
