Entry into wind energy for electricians: Is it worth it?

“Entry for electricians into wind energy is definitely worthwhile”.

Stefan Wolf, Head of Operation & Maintenance

December 2019

Mr. Wolf, what makes joining your service & maintenance team as an electrician:in so attractive?

Our teams work on long-term service contracts. They are equipped to a very high quality with service vehicles in mint condition, first-class tools and are provided with their own PPE equipment and, of course, complete work clothing.

Is previous experience in wind energy required?

The job is perfect for mechanics and electricians who want to get into wind energy. The 2-month intensive training of our client is fully remunerated from the first day. After that, you are not yet a qualified service technician, but you are qualified to perform service and maintenance work on the required turbines.

What are the advantages for the employees in your teams?

  • Our employees are on the road all over Germany. In order to be fit for the assignments, they sleep on the road in single rooms in hotels or guesthouses.
  • The arrival and departure is paid with a special allowance
  • Who would like to keep fit, can train with our company fitness program Wellpass Germany-wide in over 6500 gyms, go swimming or use Wellnessangebote
  • Pay is performance-based and increases gradually with experience
  • It feels good to be actively involved in the implementation of the energy transition

That all sounds good. Do you ever celebrate together?

We have a Christmas party every year where all the service and maintenance teams get together. This year we’re going on a tour of the Elbe River from Hamburg with a medieval buffet.

Where can you find the current job offers at RTS Wind AG?
