As part of the Aberdeen Renewable Energy Group (AREG), Maersk Training launched the simulator and performed demonstrations of the safety training required prior to working on a wind turbine generator.

Maersk’s Aberdeen training centre is the only facility in Scotland able to run all five modules of the Global Wind Organisation and Basic Safety Training at one location.

Deliverable within a week from Maersk Training it deals with the cramped conditions that exist within offshore and onshore wind turbines.

The simulator allows multiple turbine models to be replicated which enables technicians to train in demanding and realistic conditions.

Morag McCorkindale of AREG said: “With several leading projects getting underway around the North-east, it is vital that safety and training is at the forefront of plans for both individuals and companies.

“This a great opportunity for our members to gain an insight into some of the innovative training that is being developed for the renewables industry.”

The equipment used can also be adapted to replicate a rescue situation in which further complications occur.

Michael Prater-Cockayne, operations manager at Maersk Training added: “It’s an area of training that has perhaps been too generic up to now but this technology means we can offer a larger range of courses to meet the demands of our customers.

“We’ve seen training for the renewables sector increase rapidly over the last few months with many transitioning from oil & gas”

Mark McKenzie, key account manager, added at the event: “It was great to share our capabilities and demonstrate some of the practical elements of training that those working within the renewables industry will undergo. Maersk Training is committed to providing an industry leading standard of training with a focus on improving safety and operational performance.”
