Region's first offshore training centre

Hanging from 65ft on a wind turbine, or bolting a high-powered cable while off a ladder: two skills the region's first offshore training centre will teach from today.

Advanced Industrial Solutions and Maersk Training are opening the first offshore and onshore skills hub.

They say they're expecting more than 4,000 customers through their doors this year.

The centre will teach engineers and mechanics how to work in the wind turbine environment safely, including from terrifying heights.
