The purpose built facility in Kingswells, Aberdeen will complement its existing purpose built centre in Portlethen and will offer services to UK operators previously only available elsewhere in Europe.

Maersk Training has opened new advanced Offshore Drilling Simulation and Well Control Training facility in Aberdeen.

The purpose built facility in Kingswells is equipped with state of the art simulators designed to teach individuals “vital competences to keep themselves and their colleagues, safe in the real world”.

The simulator works from high powered graphics projected to multiple screens, and includes real life sounds, motion platforms and sensors to enable instructors to put students through a range of scenarios, from routine exercises to engineered crisis situations.

The facility will be used to provide training modules in drilling, well control, crane operation, emergency management and human factor related courses.

Maersk Training said the new facility will complement its existing purpose built centre in Portlethen, which offers training in offshore survival, emergency response fire-fighting, confined space, safety, medical as well as boat courses, and will offer services to UK operators previously only available elsewhere in Europe.

John Abate, general manager of Maersk Training in Aberdeen, said: “This investment represents a significant step for Maersk Training in delivering high quality training worldwide for the offshore, oil and drilling industries across a global estate of training centres and creates a tremendous opportunity to lift the overall skillsets and competency in the industry and reduce down-time and non-productive time offshore.

“The new training facility is also a huge boost for the industry in the UK, providing access to the very latest simulation technology and allowing Maersk Training to deliver bespoke oil and gas courses in the UK that were previously only available elsewhere in Europe.”
