The new recruitment agreement will make Atlas provider of personnel for Siemens Gamesa’s new and existing offshore wind farms in the Netherlands — including Borssele 1&2, which consists of 94 turbines and is expected to have a yearly electricity production for approximately 1 million households per year.

The personnel Atlas will provide for Siemens Gamesa’s wind farms in the Netherlands include Site Managers, Service Planners, HSE Advisors, Wind Technicians, Stock Keepers, and Stock Operatives. Atlas will run the operation from its offices in Hoofddorp and Vlissingen and will recruit for both national and local professionals.

“SGRE is looking forward to the cooperation with Atlas to lead the recruitment for service personnel for both our onshore and offshore wind farms in The Netherlands. Atlas’ concept for the recruitment is professional, flexible and demonstrates their expertise. We believe that Atlas is passionate about the wind industry and this is also what we are looking for in our new employees,” said Carin Koole HR of Siemens Gamesa in the Netherlands.

There is rapid growth in the development of wind power in the Netherlands, with the Dutch government expecting offshore wind plants to produce 40 percent of the country’s current electricity consumption by 2030, Atlas Professionals said.

Joost Pellis, Strategic Manager Renewables, Atlas Professionals, said: “This contract award is a perfect start to intensify our relationship with Siemens Gamesa in The Netherlands. We will use our knowledge and experience gained over the years to ensure we supply the most competent and experienced professionals to Siemens Gamesa’s Dutch wind projects to help the company reach its goals.”
