Internship Opportunity With The South Africa Wind Energy Association(SAWEA) 

 The South Africa Wind Energy Association (SAWEA) in partnership with Loeriesfontein/Khobab Wind Farm, we’re excited to announce that Wind Industry Internship Programme (WIIP) will be running for the second time in 2023. WIIP first launched in 2022 January, where 15 interns were placed and mentored by SAWEA member organisations for a period of 12 months. This current process will however be running for the first time through the Loeriesfontein/Khobab Wind Farm and we are excited to open it up to the Loeriesfontein/Khobab community.

The WIIP internship offers hands-on experience to exceptional South African students who are committed to building a career in renewable wind energy. The purpose of the WIIP is to provide young professionals who have recently completed a degree (or those undertaking graduate programmes) with the opportunity to gain practical work experience in line with their studies and interests, and to expose them to work that is related to sustainable energy. 

The students will be working alongside the Loeriesfontein/Khobab Wind Farm’s Operational Team, being exposed to various tasks and activities in and around the wind farm. The 2023 applications have been reopened to ensure maximum participation and young aspiring professionals are encouraged to apply.
