Wind Turbine Jobs – Titles, Salaries, Training and Certification

Wind generation has become America’s number one source of renewable electricity generation, according to figures from the U.S. Energy Information Administration.

The EIA says that wind generation totaled 300 million megawatt hours (MWh) last year, compared to 26 million MWh generated by hydroelectric power.

And that’s good news for people in the wind turbine industry – or people seeking wind turbine jobs – as well as people who make, sell and calibrate torque tools, which are invaluable for turbine construction.

In this blog post, we’ll look at the current wind turbine jobs forecast – what jobs are out there, what they entail – and discuss how torque tools can help people in this field.

RAD Digital DB vs B-RAD Battery Torque Wrench

Battery-powered wrenches are among the most popular items we sell, so it makes sense that one of our most frequently-asked questions has to do with these torque tools:

“What is the difference between the RAD Digital D-BRAD battery torque wrench (or DB) and the RAD B-RAD battery torque wrench?”

And while their names might make them sound like interchangeable tools, there are some significant differences between these battery-powered, high-capacity torque wrenches.

In this blog post, we’ll explain the differences between and advantages of each tool.

Bolting in Civil Engineering

If you want to understand the importance of proper bolting in civil engineering and bridge construction, spend some time reading about what happened to the Bay Bridge in California in 2013.

According to the Los Angeles Times, 32 bolts on the bridge snapped during tightening in March of that year, “leaving the seismic safety of the massive endeavor in question.”

These thick steel bolts connect the deck of the bridge to its “sheer keys” which control movement of the bridge during an earthquake.
