Aquatic Engineering & Construction Ltd., an Acteon company, is stepping with a fully-integrated training program for all offshore staff. The improved program coincides with an intensive drive to build more strategic kit during 2013 in response to customer demand and to meet the company’s ambitious targets for growth over the next three years.

Aquatic’s revitalized training program, which is based at its newly expanded Peterhead, U.K. facility, offers four different types of equipment that can simulate discrete offshore operations. A dedicated full-time training supervisor, Sandy Roberts, will lead the training. Roberts is a former Aquatic offshore supervisor with more than 15 years of operational experience.

The number of Aquatic offshore employees and retained overseas contractors has grown by 30% in the last year, and the company expects the total to exceed 100 by the end of the year. The training program is vital for new operators undergoing such training for the first time and for more experienced supervisors who need refresher courses. In addition, the program will enable all Aquatic offshore supervisors to expect more from their teams during day-to-day operations while affording them a greater focus on customer liaison.

The new strategic kit Aquatic will build during 2013 to help meet its growth targets includes a fully modular carousel, the AQCS-01A-1500, which will be ready for service in Q3 2013 and is based on a concept driven and developed by the company’s in-house engineering department. In addition, there will be two 50-te tensioner systems (AQTT-10H-50 and the AQTT-10J-50) and two 500-te modular drive systems (AQPR-02M-500 and AQPR-02N-500).
