RelyOn Nutec Opens New Training Vessel Amsterdam

RelyOn Nutec has officially opened new training ship Zeus in the harbour of Amsterdam. With this specially designed training vessel, the safety training provider can offer a wide range of fire and lifeboat related training courses for the offshore, maritime and wind industries and public fire brigades. This new training facility is situated at the NDSM-Pier.

Realistic training facilities
The interior of the ship has a cabin, galley, storage room and fuel treatment room. The ship has an engine room consisting of two levels. Live fires with different types of fuel can be lit in controlled conditions. A conventional and free-fall lifeboat are attached to the exterior of the ship.

Thanks to the extensive facilities on board the ship, the entire ‘command & control’ chain can be trained. The combination of firefighting and lifeboat facilities makes it possible to train various scenarios, including the actual abandonment of the ship if the incident cannot be controlled. The ship also offers the participants the opportunity to practise working in and rescue from confined spaces.

“With our new training facility, we are able to offer very realistic training scenarios to our clients. Due to the nature of the training courses, customers will not only be compliant to certification, we will be able to guarantee an even higher level of competence than ever before,” says Peter Van Cauwenberghe, Managing Director RelyOn Nutec Central Europe.
