New Rope Access Training Center Opens in Aberdeen, Creates New Jobs
Maintenance, inspection and integrity specialist, MInteg, has opened a new rope access training center at parent company EnerMech’s Aberdeen headquarters.
The $67,000 (GBP 50,000) investment in the Howes Road training center includes a training tower, a cat head crane section and a classroom facility.
In its first year of operation it is expected that 70 EnerMech staff will receive training, along with 70 external candidates, a MInteg representative told Rigzone. The spokesperson added that the training center will support three new jobs.
“The new training facility and our extended IRATA status will be integral to improving the skills of technicians in tackling the difficulties associated with working at height,” MInteg Director Patrick Gallagher said in a company statement.
“At MInteg our rope access specialists are working in close collaboration with EnerMech’s skilled engineers and technicians and have developed combined training and assessment criteria where the quality of work is assessed hand-in-hand with the rope access safety aspect,” he added.
“The end result is the client can be assured they are benefitting not only from the increased efficiencies of rope access, but that the engineers and technicians working on their project have proved their competence in transferring skills to the difficult arena of working at height,” Gallagher continued.
MInteg recently opened its first international facility in Perth, Western Australia, as part of an expansion strategy which will tap into LNG and upstream oil and gas opportunities in Australia. The company became part of the EnerMech group in June 2017.
