Suzlon launches US wind technician training centre
Oct 20, 2011 - The North American arm of Indian wind turbine maker Suzlon Energy (BOM:532667) yesterday said it had opened a training centre for wind technicians in Illinois.
The facility will include a lab, a wind-turbine training center and a fully operational wind turbine only for training purposes. The centre's design allows the installation of a second turbine, Suzlon Wind Energy Corp said.
