PEM Offshore Limited signed a multi-million dollar contract with Kongsberg Maritime for the supply of a full suite of Offshore Anchor Handling, Dynamic Positioning, Power Management and Crane Simulation systems. The new simulators will form the main infrastructure for a world-class offshore simulation training center and the first of its kind in Nigeria and West Africa.

The new training center will be located in Lagos and serve to support the training of local and foreign offshore personnel involved in offshore oil and gas operations, underpinning a growing market demand for highly competent and qualified personnel for this high risk environment.

As part of the contract, Kongsberg Maritime will supply PEM Offshore with simulation training technology, identical to systems found onboard many vessels in the world fleet and also provide subject matter expertise to ensure the new training center meets or exceeds industry standards. The simulator delivery includes both DP Class B and Class C simulation trainers, allowing for advanced dynamic positioning training for certification in accordance with Nautical Institute (NI), Det Norsk Veritas (DNV) and International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA) standards.

The PEM Offshore Training Center will also be certified to DP Class A for use in Sea-time reduction training, where time spent in simulator training significantly reduces time required for live training at sea, enabling safer and more cost effective DP training.

PEM Offshore has also invested in a comprehensive range of technical and instructor (train-the-trainer) programs that will cover all aspects of the DP, Kongsberg Offshore Vessel Simulator (KOVS), Crane, Bridge and Power Management simulators. To remain current with evolving regulatory changes and the latest Kongsberg developments, PEM Offshore has also invested in a 5-year, Long Term System Support Program (LTSSP).

PEM Offshore's new training center is accepting course registrations now for training commencing January 20, 2014.
