About 5,000 miners from the Jiu Valley will be trained as technicians in the field of wind energy production and distribution of electricity


The mining redevelopment project in the Jiu Valley has been launched, with 5,000 miners trained to become employed in the production of wind energy and electricity distribution.

The project aims to create an Academy (Professional Training and Reconversion Academy for Renewable Sources and Distribution of Electricity) with training points at Tg. Jiu and Craiova.

Practically, around 500 technicians will be trained in these centers for 10 years. These will add to 3,000 specialists in power distribution.

Miners certification within the Academy will enable them to work in the installation, operation and maintenance of renewable projects. “Europe’s energy transition must be done at a pace that does not affect either the energy security of states or the lives of those involved in the production of coal-based energy. We are responsible for the future of those who depend on mining today. The Jiu Valley is one of the areas included in the Carboniferous Regions Platform in Transition, and I think miners’ abilities are easy to transfer to the renewable energy sector. The program will prepare advanced specialists in electrical, mechanical and hydraulic fields. This is perhaps one of the most extensive professional reconversion programs with immediate results: post-graduate employment. The program is designed in such a way that any miner can work in one of the wind farms in Romania in maximum 6 months of training,” said the Energy Minister, Anton Anton.

For the establishment of the Academy, the Ministry of Energy, together with the Romanian Wind Energy Association (RWEA), Monsson Operations, Distribuție Energie Oltenia (CEZ Romania) and Petrosani University, signed a cooperation protocol in May this year.

The project aims to be financed through the Modernization Fund, article d., To which Romania has joined with other Member States.



  1. In urmatorul articol poate aflam cate parcuri eoliene sunt si numarul deficitar de lucratori.Sunt convins ca nu au fost luate in calcul si parcurile de distractie.Ar fi interesant si cum a dat ANRE licenta de functionare fara personal de exploatare.Situatia e identica si in sectorul de distributie.Sau devin profitabile si eficiente societatile prin marirea numarului de salariati.Ar fi interesant si cati bani (sute de milioane de EURO) au fost folsiti pana acum , ma refer in 28 de ani,pentru reconversia minerilor si cine au fost beneficiarii.Din pacate nu vom afla niciodata,oare de ce.

  2. Sint fix 3 oferte pe an pe bestjobs.ro pentru tehnicieni mentenanta turbine eoliene.
    Transelectrica sustine ca reteaua de transport nu mai poate suporta investitii suplimentare in energie eoliana. Nici macar in noul El Dorado eolian din Gorj/Dolj(bate puternic vantul pe acolo, de doua ori pe an).
    Rational este si numarul de 3000 de noi reconvertiti in domeniul distributiei ee. Venit din partea Distributie Energie Oltenia care avea fix 1241 angajati la sfarsitul anului 2018. Unde vor fi mai exact reconvertiti cei 3000??
    In concluzie, este o sifonare de bani de la fraierii care platesc catre ‘lectorii’ Monsson si eventul CEZ Oltenia distributie. RWEA se alege cu imaginea de salvator al minerilor, fara sa fie de fapt astfel. Ceilati fraieri sint minerii academicieni, care se vor trezi cu niste atestate fara niciun fel de valoare. Sper ca dupa ce au fost folositi in anii ’90, sa fie mai greu de prostit acum.
