MEMBER NEWS: Maersk Training wins two coveted safety and training awards at newly launched Global Wind Organisation award ceremony

Global safety specialist, Maersk Training, has won two Global Wind Organisation (GWO) Safety & Training awards which took place at this year’s WindEurope Electric City conference in Copenhagen.

The GWO Safety & Training Awards is the world’s first programme of its kind, focused on excellence in training and aims to recognise the impact of training providers, instructors, and supporting workforces within the wind energy industry.

After achieving accolades for Training Team of the Year in both the Newcomer and Americas categories, for its Humber and Brazil teams respectively, Maersk Training also received high commendation for Training Team of the Year in the 0-500 WINDA uploads category.

Stuart Morrice, learning operations manager – Northern region, said: “We are honoured to have been presented with these awards. We invest heavily in our instructors’ personal development, which enables them to maintain and enhance their skills and knowledge to deliver a professional service, ensuring standards across the company are high and consistent. This has been proven with the industry-leading bespoke enhanced rescue package delivered exclusively at Maersk Training in Humber.”

Maersk Training provides high-quality training required for the necessary accreditations from industry-leading bodies, with courses designed specifically to meet client and site requirements. With a specific focus on the fast-growing wind energy sector, the company aims to support local energy markets within their regions to ensure competent, safe, and productive workforces.

Patrick Modolo, general manager – Brazil region added: “This is a proud moment for the team, and we are absolutely honoured to receive the Training Team of the Year award within the Americas category.

AREG is the original energy transition organisation, working on behalf of members to empower the energy supply chain and champion its expertise. Please get in touch if you have any questions or would like to find out more about membership.

AREG has played an important role in the growth of Scotland’s renewable energy sector, engaging the supply chain and developing the European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre. However, we are only at the very beginning of the transition that AREG was established to both lead and support so there are still opportunities for companies to get into the constantly evolving renewables supply chain. We look forward to continuing our work together as renewables builds on its place as Scotland’s main source of power, and as we seek to deliver real change in the crucial areas of heat and transport.

Aberdeen & Grampian Chamber of Commerce has worked closely with AREG since its formation. The recent progress in the developments of offshore wind projects by Equinor and Vattenfall are as a result of the work of the group over many years. The north-east is known as the oil and gas capital of Europe. At the Chamber, we believe the region must evolve its position to being recognised as the energy capital. Whilst hydrocarbons will continue to be essential in driving our economy for years to come, the generation of renewable resources will play an increasingly important role in providing cost-effective power, innovative development and economic growth.

The enthusiasm and dedication of the early group that would become AREG was fundamental in us choosing to launch All-Energy in Aberdeen. The first tiny show was held in 2001, and AREG’s Chairman at the time, Jeremy Cresswell, played such an active role that I often describe him in terms such as All-Energy’s ‘midwife’. All-Energy is now the UK’s largest renewable and low carbon energy exhibition and conference in terms of number of attendees, space booked, and number of exhibiting companies. As AREG became firmly established, their presence and support for the event grew spectacularly over the years. We thank them most sincerely for their invaluable input.


Vattenfall has forged a strong working relationship with AREG through the development of the European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre. AREG has worked tirelessly on behalf of the North East and it can take enormous credit for the growth of sustainable energy in the region and the path it has cleared for the region to capture further investment.


Aberdeen City and Shire is emerging as a key location for renewables by successfully transferring its world-class oil and gas expertise into the sector and AREG has done much to advance this through a broad range of initiatives. It has acted as a catalyst in driving further investment in the local economy by engaging with companies, Government, public bodies and existing projects and we have been pleased to support their efforts. Scottish Enterprise will continue to engage with AREG as we increase Scotland’s use of renewable energy.
