Wind Turbine Technician


Wind Turbine Technician

My office is 100 metres in the air. That's right, I install, inspect and maintain our wind turbines that generate renewable electricity. The business end of a wind turbine is at the top, so we've got to get up there to keep them running. Some say I have my head in the clouds. Some days, that's literally true!
