High-voltage electrical work is a Scanel speciality. Relevant staff regularly take part in new and specialist HV courses. As part of that process, we are pleased to announce that we have entered into partnership with Skive Technical Institute to provide specialist high-voltage training up to 72 kV. Our HR Coordinator Hannah Hagensen and Wind Head of Service Rune Hald Henriksen arranged the final details during a recent visit to the institute – the courses will begin in November.
