Fugro Academy Relocating to Plymouth’s Turnchapel Wharf

Plymouth’s Turnchapel Wharf has announced its newest tenant: Fugro Academy, the in-house training centre for Fugro, provider of geotechnical, survey, subsea and geosciences services.

Fugro Academy is relocating to Turnchapel Wharf from its current base in Gweek, Cornwall.

Grant Aitchison, Training and Development Manager at Fugro Academy, commented on the reasons for the centre’s move: “The space we have at Turnchapel Wharf allows us to combine quayside and classroom in a way we haven’t been able to before, something that will help us to integrate our service offering much more effectively. Having the centre in Plymouth will also mean it is more accessible for our students.”

Dylan Kalis, Managing Director of Yacht Havens Group, which owns Turnchapel Wharf, says of Fugro’s decision to choose the site for its base: “We are delighted to welcome Fugro Academy to Turnchapel Wharf; they were quick to recognise the site as an ideal base for fieldwork training. Fugro Academy has close ties with the marine science community within Plymouth, which has become a national centre of excellence in marine science and technology.”

Fugro Academy is currently renovating its new premises to create a bespoke training centre from where it will create and deliver a wide portfolio of technical and business related training through e-learning, classroom and offshore practical courses, Yacht Havens concluded.
