Kongsberg Maritime Horten Training Centre Open for Business

This week was the official opening of Kongsberg Maritime’s expanded training centre in Horten.

Located on the dockside of the inner harbour, the centre is set to welcome course participants from around the world.

The team, consisting of seven instructors, will be able to provide a complete set of combined or individual courses within Dynamic Positioning, Navigation, Automation and Subsea technology.

In addition to standard courses, the center will focus on the training needs of individuals and will offer customised solutions developed in cooperation with customers and the Kongsberg Maritime Training team, the company noted.

“We believe the learning situation improves with a familiar visual set-up from real operations. The new courses are already established and working well for our customers. We look forward to building on this very strong start for the new centre,” says head of the location’s Training Center Arild Røen.

“Collaboration across different product areas and locations enables us to operate more efficiently and opens the opportunity to offer compressed training packages that will provide cost savings for the customer,” adds Rita Krathe, coordinator of the new training center.

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
