Fugro opens Middle East training centre

Fugro has announced that it has opened a new training centre in Abu Dhabi to support its standardised approach to staff development, as well as supporting the training needs of its clients.

The training centre features three training suites, an engineering workshop, a simulation suite, a seven-function manipulator trainer and offices. It also has direct access to Fugro’s own quayside and equipment within the base area.

The new centre is an extension of the Fugro Academy, which was created in 2006, and provides office-based and field staff with both instructor-led practical courses and online hosted e-learning modules on a variety of technical, HSE and business-related topics.

“Following the success of the Fugro Academy in Plymouth, which focuses on survey training, we decided to create a subsea training centre, to work in partnership with our UK colleagues,” explained Fugro subsea division training manager Darren Walley. “Locating the facility alongside our highly successful remotely operated vehicle training centre here in Abu Dhabi builds on Fugro’s close ties with the United Arab Emirates and brings us the benefits associated with an abundance of local specialist personnel and equipment suppliers.”
