Maersk Training wraps up £750,000 refurbishment project

28 February 2022

Maersk Training has completed the last part of a £750,000 refurbishment of its Aberdeen training centre, it said February 28. The last stage was installing an advanced emergency firefighting facility (pictured below, courtesy Maersk Training).

Together with a helicopter simulator and helideck for emergency training, the new-look facility in Portlethen now offers complete training across the energy and maritime sectors. Companies may also order bespoke training.

The upgrade already includes a basic technical training simulator – the only one of its kind in Aberdeen – as the company says it wants to be a one-stop shop for all emergency training needs.

Maersk Training said: “The completion of our upgraded Portlethen training centre marks the culmination of months of hard work and research to ensure that we have the very best offering that reflects an evolving energy industry.

“Delegates can be placed in realistic fire and helideck emergency response scenarios, where they will undertake extensive training in planning, system and controls, personal protective equipment and any potential hazards…. During the courses they will be taught to efficiently manage any HSE risks, as well as how best to communicate effectively with teams.” For more information, please see here.
