Wind Turbine Technicians

Wind turbine techs fix, and install wind turbines. When doing so they must climb great heights to even reach the top of the turbines. The wind turbines are filled with automated systems that are both mechanical and electrical and a few that merge together. This means that the technicians also need to be familiar with both of those types of engineering not just one or the other.
