Maersk Training has entered a global training agreement with Transocean beginning in January. Maersk Training will be responsible for administration of all and delivery of certain training for Transocean’s offshore crew for at least five years.
With the additional operational centers created through the agreement, Maersk Training now has centers in 10 of the global maritime and offshore production hubs in the world, including Denmark, Norway, Singapore, Brazil, the United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom and the United States, along with facilities in West Africa.
“We have seen a substantial period of growth within safety and operational training, reflecting the oil and gas industry’s push forward in terms of safety and efficiency, and we are excited about this agreement, feeling convinced that it will reinforce and further strengthen safety and operational performance in the offshore industry,” Claus Bihl, CEO of Maersk Training, said.
The agreement comes as the offshore industry continues to upscale competencies of its workforce with increased attention on the importance of overall quality and well-specific training. The significance of training is becoming more evident as the industry sets out to drill in harsher environments and in deeper waters.
