Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy A/S

"Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy employs a great number of engineers every year. Therefore, we support education of engineering students who are heading for the competences that we are looking for. It is also important to us that the students get a good impression both of our industry and of Denmark. Thereby, we get good ambassadors for the wind industry and for Denmark.

I appreciate the direct dialogue with students at the summer school. Through workshops and discussions about the technology of modern wind turbines, we get to know each other, and I get an opportunity to tell about our high-tech industry and what this industry offers as well as requires from future graduates. The students are often fascinated to hear how complex and innovative wind technology is. They all seem eager to learn more, and I find this very inspiring."

Vestas Wind Systems A/S

"At Vestas, we are 100% focused on wind, and our engineers work on tasks across the entire value chain from the initial contact with our customers over site layout and transportation to installation, operation and service.

It is of great relevance for Vestas and a pleasure for me personally to be a part of the Wind Summer School because it is a chance to meet talented young engineers from all over the world who are so dedicated to this industry that they are willing to spend their summer vacation on it."

Anders Vedel, Chief Technology Officer, Vestas Wind Systems A/S
