Maersk Training invests seven figures into Aberdeen
Maersk Training has recently announced a significant investment of EUR 850,000 into its UK business, headquartered in Aberdeen. The funding will support the investment in its people, growing the headcount and upgrading facilities, courses and innovation in Aberdeen, which is the organisation’s hub for all training activity in UKCS for oil and gas and renewables globally.
The investment will bring a significant upgrade to its fire and helideck training ground in Portlethen, Aberdeenshire, as well as increasing Maersk Training’s offering in OPITO mandatory courses to complement its existing offering within oil and gas and renewables in Aberdeen and its five other UK sites. The investment ensures Maersk Training remains at the forefront of all three sectors whilst maintaining the training excellence that its customers have come to expect.
Maersk Training is leading the way for offshore training, providing immersive learning methods for the oil and gas sector, as well as being leaders in the wind and renewables market offering accredited Global Wind Organisation (GWO) approved courses. Bucking the trend amidst the pandemic, this year alone the company has introduced an upgrade to its Training Management Service (TMS), to improve processes for companies dealing with fewer headcount, and re-introduced its modular training units offering an effective and safer solution for delegate training.
Maersk Training UK Head of Commercial, Scott Taylor, says, “This investment will help showcase the Aberdeen facilities within the UK training sector. It is a direct illustration of Maersk’s dedication to the longevity of the oil and gas market, not only in Aberdeen but throughout the UK. Maersk has a strong focus and commitment to the North-east region and looks to further growing its industry leading profile in renewables. The company has seen significant changes this year with the introduction of a new leadership team, so it is great to see the company further invest in its people and the future of the Aberdeen business.”
