Wind power is one of prospect with a promising future. Global installed wind-generation capacity onshore and offshore has increased by a factor of almost 50 in the past two decades, jumping from 7.5 gigawatts (GW) in 1997 to some 487 GW by 2016, according to figures from the Renewable Energy Network for the 21st Century (REN21). Production of wind electricity doubled between 2009 and 2013. Many parts of the world have strong wind speeds, but the best locations for generating wind power are sometimes remote ones. Offshore wind power offers tremendous potential [1].

The Global Wind Organisation (GWO) standards are established to improve safety on an industry-wide basis. GWO criteria adapt to reflect safety hazards in the wind turbine industry and to the ensure a safe work environment for anyone working in the wind turbine industry.

To accommodate the emerging industry, MSTS Asia offers Basic Safety Training (GWO) to assist business stay safe beyond the regulatory requirement. Not only that, we (MSTS Johor Training Centre) is the first training in Malaysia approved by GWO to conduct the training.
