A day in the life of a Vestas Wind Tech
Developing and building wind turbines and service solutions are only part of our business. The skills and experience you bring to our team help us with projects where the scope of work ranges from “simple” supply and commissioning projects to turnkey solutions involving the supply, installation, and commissioning of wind turbines, as well as access roads, foundations, cabling, electrical substations, communication systems, and more. As a result, our value chain stretches across project planning, procurement, manufacturing, construction, and installation through to operation and maintenance. It is a complex process that depends on a highly skilled and dedicated workforce.
Meet Chris Kilpatrick
Many of our Wind Techs come to us with experience outside of the wind industry. You may be wondering what a typical day is like. Watch as Chris Kilpatrick walks you through a not-so-typical day working on wind turbines from 280 feet above the ground. As a site manager, his responsibilities now include ensuring the safety of his team, braving challenging weather conditions in order to keep the lights on in neighboring towns.
