Safe Maintenance Program

WWS Safe Maintenance Program

The WWS Safe Maintenance Program provides several courses developed specifically for Wind & Solar asset preventative maintenance services. While much of the core curriculum is geared toward safety and technical training, we have included courses that are OEM & Scope specific.

Our program focuses on specific competencies, providing basic wind and solar fundamentals, component-level familiarization, electrical and mechanical training, QEW training, Inverter Maintenance and Troubleshooting and much more.  Our facility provides students with real world, hands-on experience with megawatt class wind turbines, central inverters, string inverters, switch gears and all levels of proper tool identification, usage and maintenance. Our technicians are equipped with the knowledge to perform scheduled and unscheduled maintenance on a variety of wind and solar assets and platforms.

WWS is excited to announce our brand new, state of the art technical training center at the new corporate facility in Tehachapi, CA. This training center is equipped with MW class wind turbines, simulators, DTA’s, switch gears, central inverters, string inverters, simulators, troubleshooting stations and more.  If you find yourself in Tehachapi, give us a call to arrange a quick tour.
