Job Description

Position Overview

As a Blade Repair Field Services Technician, you will be responsible for the repair and maintenance of wind turbine blades. Blade repair technicians utilize both rope access and suspended platforms to complete repair and maintenance work scopes. Blade work from rope access and platforms means many days spent in an open-air work environment. When unable to complete in-air blade work due to unfavorable weather conditions, time is spent on various tasks such as reports, inspections and training. Blade Repair Technicians may also perform other wind turbine repairs that require rope access.

This position requires up to 100% travel, therefore applicants who do not reside in the immediate area of one of the posting locations should apply and may still be considered.

  • Utilize power tools to perform delicate grinding work on composite structures.
  • Employ safe work practices to use chemicals and glass fibers to complete composite structure repair.
  • Perform inspections and repairs on wind turbine blades and associated equipment.
  • Complete required reporting on repair work, inspections, etc.
  • Learn and use software systems to manage work reporting and other company business.
  • Maintain company tooling and equipment.
  • Work a 40+ hour work week and be subject to scheduled and unscheduled overtime. Work schedules may vary during the peak work periods.
  • Other duties as assigned.

Requirements
  • Ability to travel up to 100% of the time.
  • Must be able to work outdoors in inclement weather, climb ladders without assistance, and work suspended from two rope systems and/or platforms at heights greater than 80 meters (250 feet).
  • Ability to move and manipulate up to 45 kg (100 pounds).
  • Weight must not exceed 120 kg (265 lbs.) excluding equipment/gear worn when performing job related tasks.
  • Ability to rappel from a wind turbine.
  • Valid driver's license and acceptable driving record.

Preferred
  • SPRAT level 1 or higher certification
  • One (1) year technical experience (mechanical, electrical, composite repair, etc.) and/or technical education.

Individuals receiving conditional offers of employment will be subject to drug testing and must receive a negative result to begin working for the company.
