EnerMech Invests £500k in New Crane Training Tech



UK, Qatar and Angola training centres equipped with world-leading crane simulators to improve safety critical decision making and to Support Safe Lifting Operations.

EnerMech has invested half-a-million pounds in advanced crane simulator training systems at its Luanda (Angola), Doha (Qatar) and Great Yarmouth (UK) facilities. The investment forms part of the company’s ongoing commitment to provide clients with the latest high quality and innovative solutions that enhance and support safe lifting operations.

Utilising the very latest simulator technology, the KraneSIM models support clients across the drilling, engineering, subsea, production and construction sectors, and use the most cutting-edge, progressive graphics to create realistic training conditions.

Delivered via suites of powerful PCs and high-resolution screens, KraneSIM technology exposes trainees to a range of operating conditions including dangerous circumstances which cannot be replicated safely in real life. This allows crane operators to build the necessary decision-making skills to safely negotiate situations that include equipment malfunctions, adverse weather conditions and human factors.

The system delivers a wide range of training environments including fixed installations, floating platforms and vessels, with various crane models, load-types and subsea configurations.  During deck lifting and supply vessel lifting operations, the trainees experience a variety of dynamic environments, emergency situations and communications skills tests which cannot be safely replicated in real life.

EnerMech’s Head of Training Jennifer Batchelor said: “Undertaking crane lifting operations safely is a highly skilled job, and ensuring personnel are competent and certified to support this is essential. The KraneSIM technology creates a safe environment for operators to build confidence and develop strong decision-making skills under pressure that could ultimately save lives and negate downtime offshore.

“We have been utilising Drilling Systems world-class simulator technologies to support safe and efficient lifting operations training for our clients in the global energy and infrastructure industries since 2005. As part of our ongoing growth, this £500k investment allows for training, competence assessment, pre-employment testing, and supporting emergency management across a further three of our clients’ key geographies and truly cements the 3t EnerMech joint venture aim of delivering world-class training services.”

Andy Noble, VP of recently launched joint venture 3t EnerMech, which is a strategic partnership between EnerMech and leading Training and Competency Organisation 3t Energy Group, said: “Our joint venture provides local skills-development across client organisations globally. By bringing the KraneSIM-6000 equipment to both Qatar and Angola in particular, we offer the highest quality in-country training and assessment experience available to local employers and employees. The KraneSIM-60 portable simulator in the UK will build on our existing capability and flexible approach to clients’ training needs.”

EnerMech’s training arm was established 25 years ago and currently delivers 116 courses to its global network. As well as its training facilities in Great Yarmouth, Luanda and Doha, it also has centres in Aberdeen, Kemaman and Singapore.
